Causes of Traumatic Brain Injuries


Slip and fall accidents

Falling from a ladder, tumbling down a flight of stairs, and slipping in the shower can all cause a person to hit their head in a way that causes brain trauma. While concussions are not usually life-threatening, if a person hits their head hard enough, it can be life-threatening.

Car accidents

Car accidents commonly cause traumatic brain injuries, and injuries can be even more severe for motorcyclists, bikers, and pedestrians who don’t have the safety features that a vehicle offers to protect themselves in the event of a collision.


Family violence and physical assault commonly cause traumatic brain injuries, especially if a deadly weapon is involved. Shaking a baby can also cause a traumatic brain injury to an infant.

Sports-related injuries

High-impact sports like football, baseball, boxing, and hockey commonly cause traumatic brain injuries. Swimming and diving in shallow water can also cause TBI’s.

Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

Our clients often have questions. We’ve answered a few here to help you prepare for the road ahead.

A TBI is a traumatic brain injury. This type of injury affects how the brain works. Approximately 166 Americans die from a brain-related injury each day. There are varying degrees of traumatic brain injuries. Some cases may be mild, while others could be moderate to severe. The result of a traumatic brain injury could lead to short-term or long-term health issues. 

A mild TBI may also be classified as a concussion. Most mild cases are not life-threatening. However, there could be lasting effects. Repeat injuries can cause longer-lasting issues, including longer recovery times.

A moderate to severe TBI can impact your life. Patients may have long-term or life-long health problems, similar to patients suffering from a chronic disease. Symptoms of moderate to severe cases include:

  • Problems thinking clearly
  • Difficulty understanding
  • Difficulty recalling information
  • Weakness in legs and arms
  • Changes in vision or hearing
  • Emotional issues such as depression or anxiety
  • Personality changes

Patients coping with moderate to severe TBI often suffer economic hardship due to the ongoing cost of treatment. It has been estimated that the life-long economic cost of treating a patient suffering from a TBI can be nearly $2 million. 

An investigation into the incident is most helpful in showing fault. Interviewing witnesses, reviewing offense reports, reviewing medical charts, etc., will allow your attorney to determine who was at fault for your injuries. 

In a personal injury case, time is of the essence. Hiring qualified legal representation who can help you navigate the legal investigation is the best way to properly prepare your case. Your physical and emotional health is of the utmost importance. Hiring an attorney who is on your side to help you get the medical care you need to heal from your injuries will allow you to stop worrying about your claim. 

Our team is available to review your case. We want to help you get the compensation you deserve for the damages you’ve suffered. 

At Murphy Crantford Meehan, we want to be your ally. This is why we offer free consultations. If you or a loved one have been injured and suffered a TBI, call us today at (843)376-4030 to discuss your case. We are ready to work for you to attain a successful outcome. 

Personal Injury claims have a three-year statute of limitations in South Carolina. This means you have three years from the date of the injury to file a lawsuit in the court system. However, because a TBI may not be evident right away, there are exceptions to this rule that may allow you start the timeline from the date you discover your injury. 

In personal injury claims, such as those dealing with TBI-related injuries, the injured person may be able to recover compensation for damages. The experienced attorneys of Crantford Meechan know how to evaluate your injuries, your medical expenses, your medical prognosis, and all other relevant details to arrive at a value for your claim. Compensation we pursue on your behalf may include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of future earnings
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
