Traumatic Brain Injury in Alabama
Let Our Experienced Legal Team at Hare Wynn Fight for You
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), traumatic brain injury (TBI) is one of the main causes of death and disability in the United States.

Common Causes of Brain Injuries
Falls are the leading cause of TBI in the United States. Nearly half of all brain injuries are the result of falls, accounting for a majority of TBIs among infants, children, and elderly adults.
Car accidents are another common cause of TBI—with nearly 200,000 brain injuries occurring every year due to traffic collisions. However, car accidents make up the largest percentage (32 percent) of fatalities related to TBI.
Other common causes of traumatic brain injury include:
- Struck by or against an object
- Medical malpractice
- Sports activities
TBI may result in permanent or temporary impairment of the brain’s functions. Victims lose important physical or mental abilities that can drastically affect their future, potentially giving up their independence or losing joy in life’s pleasures.
In addition to having a devastating impact on life, brain injuries are often costly. Victims may require multiple surgeries, ongoing therapy, and constant care.
