Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) are among the leading causes of death and disability in the United States.  According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), they affect approximately 1.7 million people each year, and account for roughly one third of injury-related deaths in the U.S.

Nearly 400 incidents of traumatic brain injury occur every day in New York, some of which lead to significant brain damage. Even “mild” TBIs, better known as concussions, can lead to memory loss or temporary loss of consciousness.

Common Causes of Traumatic Brain Injuries and Wrongful Deaths in NYC

Vehicle accidents are the most common causes of TBIs. A person may sustain a brain trauma in a car accident in several ways. In some instances, they suffer harm when their head strikes another object, like the windshield or steering wheel of a vehicle. However, a TBI may also result from whiplash. Sudden acceleration/deceleration causes the head to move in such a way that harm can occur.

It’s also worth noting that TBIs often occur when the brain tissue is harmed. This does not need to occur during the accident itself. Sometimes, the brain tissue begins to bleed and/or swell following an accident. This can still result in injury.

It’s not uncommon for victims that suffer from traumatic brain injuries to experience temporary or permanent impairment of key brain functions. This can result in varying degrees of debilitation. Additionally, some TBI’s deprive the brain of oxygen for extended periods of time. As a result, brain cells begin to die off. The consequences of these “anoxic brain injuries” may be life-threatening.

Some groups are more likely than others to be susceptible to TBIs. According to the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, the groups most at risk are children under the age of 4 years old, adolescents between the ages of 15 and 19, and elderly people.

Common situations that lead to TBI’s include:
