Causes of Traumatic Brain Injury

According to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), roughly 1.5 million people in the United States suffer traumatic brain injuries each year, resulting in 50,000 deaths and severe disability to 85,000 people. Brain injuries are the cause of 30% of all injury deaths. The causes of traumatic brain injuries are diverse, though the most common causes according to the CDC are car accidents, firearms, and falls.

Brain injuries can result from any of the following:

Types of Brain Injuries

Brain injuries can be mild, moderate, or severe. They can also be broken down into several different types:
  • A hematoma is a blood clot within your brain tissue. The closer a clot forms to your brain, the more dangerous it can be. If a hematoma occurs inside of your brain, you might lose consciousness or suffer permanent brain damage.
  • Hemorrhaging refers to uncontrolled bleeding in or around your brain. When bleeding occurs in the space around your brain it is called a subarachnoid hemorrhage. If it occurs within your brain tissue, it is an intracerebral hemorrhage. Any type of hemorrhaging can cause pressure buildup in the brain, which often displays itself via headaches and vomiting.
  • When your brain hits the hard walls of your skull, you can develop a concussion. In general, concussions are caused by abrupt impact or sudden acceleration and deceleration. Most of the time, concussions heal on their own, but multiple concussions can lead to permanent brain damage or death.
  • Edema refers to swelling in the brain. It tends to happen while your brain is trying to heal from another injury, and it can be incredibly dangerous. As your brain swells, its expansion is limited by your skull. When your brain hits your skull, pressure can build in your brain and cause secondary injuries. In many cases, this secondary injury causes more damage than the initial trauma.
  • Your skull is one of the strongest bones in your body, which makes it difficult to break. If you do sustain a skull fracture, however, brain damage will likely accompany the blow. A broken skull is unable to absorb impact, leaving the brain vulnerable. Skull fragments can also damage or destroy brain tissue.
  • A diffuse axonal injury or sheer injury does not involve internal bleeding, but it does damage your brain cells. Once these cells are compromised, they may be unable to function. This type of injury can also take longer to present itself and lead to edema, making it one of the most dangerous – and even deadly – types of brain injuries.

How Long Do I Have To File A Brain Injury Lawsuit In California?

In California, the statute of limitations for filing a brain injury lawsuit is generally two years from the date of the injury. This means you have a two-year window to initiate legal action against the responsible party. If you fail to file within this period, you may lose your right to seek compensation for your injuries. However, there are exceptions to this rule that can extend the timeframe, such as cases involving minors or when the injury was not immediately discoverable.
