One of the leading causes of death and disability in the U.S. is from traumatic brain injuries. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in 2013 approximately 2.8 million people went to the ER, were hospitalized, or died from brain injuries in the United States. If you or someone in your family received a brain injury at no fault of your own, it is important to work with a Los Angeles personal injury attorney to receive damages for your injury.

Some of the most frequent causes of brain injuries include:

  • Falls: Since falls are the most common accident, they contribute to the majority of brain injuries. Falls are also the leading cause of brain injuries in children and elderly people.
  • Auto Accidents: Whether it’s a motorcycle, truck, car, or bicycle, auto accidents are the second leading cause of brain injuries.
  • Struck by an Object: The next leading cause of brain injuries is being struck by an object. This includes construction supplies falling on someone at a worksite or someone intentionally striking another person with an object.
  • Assault: When a person is physically assaulted either during a mugging, sexual assault, or physical altercation, brain injuries often occur.
