The Most Common Causes of Brain Injury Claims
Brain injuries are unfortunately common. Some of the most common causes include the following:
Motor Vehicle Accidents
One of the most common causes of brain injury claims is motor vehicle accidents. Traumatic brain injuries can occur as a result of victims hitting their heads on the steering wheel or dashboard, or from being ejected from the car and hitting their head on the ground.
In addition to car accidents, motorcycle accidents can also lead to severe head injuries as riders are not protected by an enclosed vehicle like drivers.
Slip and Fall Accidents
Slips and falls are one of the leading causes of traumatic brain injuries in both adults and children. They can occur due to slippery surfaces, poorly maintained staircases or walkways, uneven pavement or sidewalks outside buildings, and more.
Victims may have grounds for making a claim if they have sustained an injury due to another party’s negligence in maintaining their property safely.
Construction sites are dangerous places and often contain many hazards that can lead to severe injuries, including brain injuries. This can happen when workers fall from heights, get struck by an object, or even slip and fall on the construction site.
Must-Have Evidence for Brain Injury Claims
When filing a claim for compensation due to a traumatic brain injury caused by another party’s negligence, having the right evidence is essential. The following are some of the most important pieces of evidence for these types of cases:
Medical Records and Reports
Medical evidence is incredibly important in determining the legitimacy of a brain injury claim. This includes records from doctors, nurses, physical therapists, and mental health professionals.
Witnesses can be essential in establishing the party responsible for a personal injury. They can provide details about who was present, what happened, and what conversations they overheard if any.
Expert witnesses, such as doctors or accident reconstructionists, are a valuable asset in any personal injury case involving brain injuries. Their expertise can explain how the injury occurred, the estimated recovery time needed, and the long-term consequences of the incident.
When an expert testifies on behalf of the victim in court, it can bolster their case by providing insight regarding the severity of current and potential future damages.
