Top Accidents that Cause Traumatic Brain Injuries


Medical scan of a brain after a brain injury in florida

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is an injury to the brain that significantly affects how an individual’s brain works. There are three main types of traumatic brain injuries. They include: 

  • Mild Traumatic Brain Injuries 
  • Moderate Traumatic Brain Injuries 
  • Severe Traumatic Brain Injuries 

Some TBIs are not due to anyone’s fault. However, in many cases, traumatic brain injuries directly result from another party’s negligence. If you or a loved one has suffered a TBI resulting from negligence, it’s in your best interest to consult with an attorney for traumatic brain injuries as soon as possible. 

Our TBI lawyers at Schrier Law Group have more than four decades of experience helping Florida plaintiffs recover maximum compensation for personal injury claims. We’re confident that we can help you and your family obtain the best possible outcome in your case as well. Contact us today at 1-888-831-2688 for your free case evaluation.

The Leading Causes of Traumatic Brain Injury

Most traumatic brain injury accidents happen due to slips, falls, car crashes, and firearm-related brain injuries. With that in mind, you can suffer a TBI for participating in the most mundane activities. 

For example, a traumatic brain injury can occur by slipping on an unidentified wet spot in a grocery store and violently bumping your head on the ground. Further, you can suffer a TBI by hitting your head against the steering wheel in a relatively simple car accident. 

Understanding Traumatic Brain Injuries

According to the CDC, a traumatic brain injury can pose significant health risks to individuals. Generally, the severity of the injury correlates with the short and long-term effects. For example, most individuals with a mild traumatic brain injury (i.e., a concussion) can expect to experience short-term symptoms

However, individuals suffering from mild to severe TBI may endure long-term or lifelong complications. Learn more about the different types of TBI below. 

  • Concussions – Occurs when a strong force strikes the head resulting in the brain hitting the skull and causing damage. 
  • Contusions – Also known as a “brain bruise.” Contusions often co-occur with concussions. 
  • Brain Hemorrhages – Occurs when the brain bleeds uncontrollably on the surface or within the tissue. 
  • Intracranial Hematomas – Collections of blood between the skull and brain, under the protective layer of the brain, or within the brain. 
  • Coup-Contrecoup Brain Injury – Two brain injuries co-occurring. The first injury occurs at the point of impact and the second injury occurs on the opposite side of the brain from the first. 
  • Diffuse Axonal Injury (DAI) – This is the most severe type of traumatic brain injury. It occurs when the brain twists or shakes inside the skull causing axonal shearing. 
  • Penetrating Brain Injury – Occurs when an object (i.e., tool, bullet, etc.) penetrates the skull and injures the brain. 
  • Second Impact Syndrome – Happens when you suffer a second significant brain injury shortly after the first injury. 

Sometimes, a traumatic brain injury can be confused for a simple headache or age-related memory problems. That’s why it’s essential to seek immediate medical attention after any slip, fall, or accident that causes head damage. 

What To Do If You’ve Suffered TBI Due To Another Person 

If you suspect you’ve suffered a traumatic brain injury due to the recklessness of another person, there are a few steps you should take immediately. They include: 

  • Seek immediate medical attention, even if you’re injuries are not clear. Be sure to follow all doctor recommendations and keep an account of your recovery. 
  • Collect evidence at the scene. Take pictures, record video, and identify critical eyewitnesses.
  • Contact a traumatic brain injury lawyer. Proving fault in TBI cases typically requires the experience and knowledge of an experienced TBI attorney and medical expert witnesses. 

If you’ve experienced a TBI due to the recklessness of another person or entity, we’re here to help you get the compensation you deserve. Learn more about how the TBI attorneys at Schrier Law Group can help you below.

I must say that Mr. Schrier was there when we needed immediate advice after my wife got rear-ended by an unlicensed speeding lunatic. We called a handful of attorneys in our area, but after waiting 2- 5 days they would drop her case. We found Mr Schrier online and he explained the pros/cons and he took the case. We waited patiently, and in time he was able to tracked down the actual owners of the car and get their auto insurance info!

The Schrier LG is an excellent firm! They accepted my case, provided me with all the procedural information, maintained a high level of professionalism while showing kindness and care. The doctor's office that they suggested is another group of kind and considerate individuals, dedicated to my full recovery. I would recommend the Schrier Group to friends, just as they were recommended to me. I am happy with my settlement and very pleased with the attention and diligence of the group as a whole. Thank you again!

Michaela Davis


Mr. Paul Schrier is by far the best attorney for the job! He is very responsive, knowledgeable, and very efficient. Despite my very busy schedule, he kept me informed throughout the process. I am very please with the outcome of my case. The customer service I received from the entire team has been amazing! Thank you all so much!

Ms. Jean


Not only did I get a phenomenal attorney to represent me in my case, but I also got a step by step education on how the legal process actually worked. I was encouraged to ask questions and be an informed client. I was never treated like a case. I truly felt like the advice and recommendations he gave to me would have been the same he would have pursued if he were the client. That was important to me. I needed to work with an attorney I could trust with my best interest in mind...and that is what I got with Paul Schrier.

Juan Rodriquez


I was involved in an auto accident in January 2016. We decided to contact Paul K. Schrier, PLLC for legal advice. He never got annoyed with me calling to ask questions, which was quite often. We have finally reached the final stages of this case, which they handled very well, and have come to a settlement. I highly recommend the Florida personal injury attorneys at The Law Offices of Paul K. Schrier, PLLC, especially Paul K. Schrier to any one who needs a personal injury attorney. Thank you very much Paul for everything you have done do me.
