Traumatic Brain Injury

During an auto accident or any collision that involved a serious impact to the head, a traumatic brain injury may occur when an external force traumatically injures the brain.

In fact, there are often several classifications of a traumatic brain injury which are based on severity, mechanism, or other features occurring in either a widespread or specific area.

As one can imagine, traumatic brain injuries are common during auto accidents due to the fact that a tremendous force is generated during the collision.

At the law offices of Simien & Simien, LLC, our accident injury attorneys have provided legal counsel to accident victims for over 25 years, and will work to achieve the maximum compensation for your auto accident injury claim.

Types Of Car Accidents That May Cause TBIs

Any type of car accident can result in a traumatic brain injury, if the accident causes a significant blow to a person’s skull. The following includes a list of car accidents types which can cause a traumatic brain injury:
