Causes of Brain Injuries in Vancouver

Brain injuries are a leading cause of death and disability in the United States. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately 2.5 million people suffer from a traumatic brain injury every year in the U.S. Of those, 50,000 people die, and another 280,000 become hospitalized.

There are many possible causes of brain injury, ranging from physical trauma to disease. Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is the most common type of brain injury, and can be caused by a blow to the head or other type of impact.

The most common cause of TBI is falls. More than half of all TBIs in the United States are caused by falls, and the majority of those affected are elderly. Other common causes include motor vehicle accidents, assaults, and sports injuries. Children are also at risk for TBI, especially if they participate in contact sports.

Signs and Symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injuries

According to the Mayo Clinic’s website regarding traumatic brain injuries, signs and symptoms of a brain injury in an adult may include:

Physical Symptoms

  • Loss of consciousness;
  • No loss of consciousness, but a state of being dazed, confused, or disoriented;

How Much is My Brain Injury Case Worth?

At Schauermann Thayer, we know that no two brain injury cases are ever quite the same. Due to the complexity involved in these cases, we would evaluate your case individually.

Once we determine the full scope of your injury and the lifelong impairment you may face, we build a case specifically designed to collect compensation for the damages you and your family suffered. This includes:

  • Medical expenses;
  • Lost wages;
