Motor vehicle accidents are very common, and often leave victims with serious injuries. If a crash occurs at a point when one or more of the vehicles involved have been accelerating, the jolt that will follow is highly likely to cause significant personal injury, which is often seen in the head and neck area. It is thought that the leading cause of traumatic brain injury is motor vehicle crashes, and the second leading cause of traumatic brain injury related deaths.

Causes and Effects of Traumatic Brain Injury
A traumatic brain injury can occur for a number of reasons. For example, a simple bump on the head, a seemingly harmless injury, can actually have serious consequences. The brain is a complex organ, and a bump or a hit in the wrong place can be devastating. A bump on the head could be caused by anything and wouldn’t necessarily be considered anyone’s fault, but it is common to see people suffering from traumatic brain injuries following a motor vehicle crash.
Victims experiencing a traumatic brain injury might experience:
- Impaired thinking
- Impaired memory
- Restricted movement
- Loss of sensation e.g. vision and hearing
- Difficulty functioning emotionally
- Depression and anxiety
If you or one of your loved ones have been involved in a local motor vehicle crash and have suffered a traumatic brain injury as a result, you may be able to make a claim for compensation with help from a personal injury lawyer in Bakersfield.
