The most common causes behind a TBI is a car accident or fall. After taking a severe bow to the head, your brain comes into contact with your skull, potentially causing a myriad of severe issues.
After being involved in an accident that has caused a TBI, the first and most important step to take is to seek medical attention. Be sure to have someone you trust take you to the emergency room immediately, or call an ambulance to come to you. When it comes to TBIs, the faster you can seek medical care, the better.
You’ll also want to document the scene where your TBI occurred, alert the property owner, and alert local authorities. This can help in the event that your case goes to trial. Without proper documentation of medical treatment and the space where the accident took place, it will be difficult to obtain any compensation or admit that there was no fault on your behalf.
