Motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of traumatic brain injuries. Even when an occupant is securely fastened into their vehicle with a seatbelt, the head of the occupant has the potential to move violently in a collision. This motion can cause the victim's head to strike objects such as the back of a seat or steering wheel. Even when the victim's head does not directly contact another object, the force of the accident is often enough to cause a brain injury.
Since there is little between a motorcyclist and the road, motorcycle accident victims are at a particularly high risk for traumatic brain injuries. Even riders wearing a helmet are susceptible to a severe head injury, as the helmet only minimizes the potential for damage to the skull; it is not designed to eliminate the risk of injury. The same is true for bicyclists who suffer many injuries each year at the hands of careless drivers. If you feel that you have a brain injury lawsuit, contact the Locks Law Firm. A skilled Wilkes-Barre and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and New Jersey-area head injury lawyer will review your claim.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, nearly 28 percent of all TBIs are the result of falls. A slip-and-fall accident can cause significant damage to the brain depending on the circumstances of the fall. In situations where the head comes in contact with concrete, asphalt, or metal, such as a railing, the blunt force trauma of the impact can be great enough to cause a concussion or a skull fracture.
If your traumatic brain injury was the result of a property owner's negligence, you may have a premises liability claim. Property owners are responsible for maintaining safe premises and warning of any potential dangers particularly if you are visiting a business. If you have fallen as a result of dangerous condition on a property and suffered a head injury, you may be entitled to be compensated for your injuries.

Contact sports can pose a significant risk to the health of the participants; the injuries sustained by a player during games can be debilitating or life-threatening. Sports such as football, rugby, wrestling, trampolining and gymnastics are particularly risky for those involved. Many claims resulting form sports injuries are barred by the legal doctrine of assumption of the risk, but only a lawyer experienced in handling sports injuries can tell you if your injury may have occurred as a result of actionable negligence of another. If you or your child has suffered a traumatic brain injury, a spinal cord injury, or other serious harm during a sporting event, you may be legally entitled to monetary compensation for medical bills, rehabilitation, earnings loss and pain and suffering. Schedule a free consultation at one of the Locks Law Firm's three offices – New York City, New York; Cherry Hill, New Jersey; and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
