What Are The Leading Causes Of Traumatic Brain Injuries In Kentucky?
Many people think of traumatic brain injuries, or TBIs, only occurring during the worst types of collisions, falls, or when our residents are most vulnerable — on foot or while riding their bikes.
Unfortunately, an average of 166 Americans dies from TBI-related injuries each day, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Another three million people visit emergency rooms across the country annually seeking care for traumatic brain injuries, which makes them increasingly common.
The major causes of traumatic brain injuries are listed by the CDC as:
- 47%: Falls
- 25%: Motor Vehicle Collisions
- 17%: Struck By or Against an Object
- 11%: Assaults
With nearly 157,000 reported traffic crashes throughout the Commonwealth last year, many of our Kentucky residents are suffering from catastrophic injuries like these that were caused by drunk, distracted, or speeding drivers.
When negligent drivers decide to operate their vehicles recklessly, our fellow Kentuckians pay the price with severe injuries and the tragic losses of their loved ones, which is no accident.
If you or someone you love has suffered a traumatic brain injury in a crash, during a construction, industrial, or work accident, or because of someone’s negligent or intentional acts, contact our skilled personal injury attorneys today to learn more about how we can help you pursue the proper party for the full financial recovery you deserve.
