A TBI can happen under a wide variety of circumstances. Some common causes include car accidents, sports-related accidents, falls and violent crimes. According to the CDC, falls account for 32.5 percent of all TBIs each year. Although motor vehicle accidents cause 17.3 percent of all TBIs, they account for 31.8 percent of all TBI deaths.
