South Carolina Brain Injury Attorneys
Brain injuries are among the most traumatic accidents and often have long-lasting or permanent repercussions. Because the brain is responsible for so much of your motor, verbal, and emotional control, a serious injury to the brain can permeate every aspect of a victim’s life. When a brain injury results from the negligent or haphazard actions of another party, the injured should not face responsibility for the medical expenses and emotional suffering likely to occur after an accident. That’s why the South Carolina brain injury attorneys at Evans Moore, LLC want to help you fight for the justice you deserve if you were the victim of a brain injury resulting from circumstances out of your control.
Causes of Traumatic Brain Injury
According to the Centers for Disease Control, the most common cause of traumatic brain injury (TBI) from 2006 to 2010 was falling. Falls accounted for over 40% of TBIs that required hospitalization or an emergency room visit. Among children under 14 years of age, over half of diagnosed TBIs resulted from a falling incident. Although simply tripping and hitting one’s head is the most common source of brain injury, any method of blunt trauma to the head can cause a TBI. Some other ways a person can sustain a TBI include:
- Car accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Violent assault
- Gunshot wounds
- Sports injuries
- Premises liability accidents
Unfortunately, these injuries are surprisingly common. Approximately 138 people die each day as the result of injuries that include TBIs. If you are unsure about whether you or someone you love suffered from a TBI, there are numerous symptoms indicative of a brain injury. Typical effects an individual can experience after a TBI can be physical or emotional changes, such as:
- Mood swings
- Balance problems
- Sensitivity to light
- Anxiety or depression
- Headaches and dizziness
- Difficulty concentrating and remembering things
