Causes of a Concussion
Over 1.2 million people in the United States suffer from a concussion and other mild forms of TBI. There can be many things that cause a concussion. Anything from a simple fall to a violent shake of your body can cause a traumatic brain injury (TBI). However, one of the most common broad causes of concussions is a construction accident. Because of the unsafe nature of most construction sites, it is not uncommon for workers to sustain concussions.
At Hach & Rose, LLP, we know that many construction workers in New York suffer from the harm that a concussion can cause. Fortunately, though, if your concussion was the result of a property owner or manager’s negligence, it may be possible to pursue compensation.
Leading Causes of Concussions
When it comes to concussions that occur as a result of construction accidents, there are a variety of different ways in which they can happen. However, some of the more common ways that concussions occur on construction sites include:
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Being struck by an object
Falls are the leading cause of TBIs in the United States, causing 35.2% of TBIs among all age groups. Although these are the most common causes of concussions, any blow to the head can cause a loss of consciousness, headaches, or temporary amnesia.
