As experienced Arizona head injury attorneys, we do everything in our power to help people understand the causes of serious injuries so that they can avoid inflicting injury to themselves or to others. The most common types of head injuries experienced by people throughout Arizona include concussions, skull fractures, and intracranial hematomas (bleeding in the brain). Most head injuries are caused by falling, sports injuries, or car and bicycle accidents.
The Arizona Governor’s Council on Spinal and Head Injuries (AZGCSHI) indicates that the majority of serious head injuries in Arizona are caused by car crashes, followed by sports injuries. In Arizona, more than 50 percent of all head injuries recorded in emergency rooms are the result of a serious car accident, according to statistical reports.
