Common causes of brain injury include slips and falls, car and motorcycle collisions, work accidents, explosive blasts, and sports injuries, to name just a few. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 14% of brain injuries are due to vehicle accidents, and 10% occur as a result of violence. While brain injuries can occur in a variety of ways, the terrible and lasting impacts are the same.
Despite the potential consequences of brain injuries, they often go undiagnosed. Around 1.5 million Americans sustain a brain injury every year. 50,000 injuries are fatal, and a further 85,000 lead to long-term disabilities.

To file a lawsuit, you need to work with a San Diego lawyer to prove:
Individuals in workplaces and on the road are legally obligated to exercise an adequate level of care to avoid harming others. For example, every driver has a duty to act reasonably so as to avoid injuring other drivers on the road.
For your claim to be successful, you must be able to prove that the defendant breached their duty of care. For a car accident, you must prove that a driver failed to act or drive reasonably, such as by driving too fast or making an unsafe lane change.
You need to demonstrate that the defendant’s breach of care was the direct cause of your brain injury.
Finally, you need to show how your traumatic brain injury has resulted in economic or non-economic damages.
