Traumatic Brain Injury
Traumatic brain injuries occur when an external force causes injury to the brain. Such injuries can cause a host of physical, mental, psychological, or behavioral impairments, as well as permanent disabilities, seizures, or death. Traumatic brain injuries often arise from car accidents, trip and falls, construction accidents, medical malpractice, hospital negligence, concussions, or any other event that might result in a blow to the head.
CDC records indicate that as many as 1.7 million people sustain a traumatic brain injury every year and that traumatic brain injuries are a contributing factor to 30% of all injury related deaths in the United States. Additionally, most traumatic brain injuries are suffered by small children, older teens, and the elderly.
The consequences of a traumatic brain injury can be dire. Often, the symptoms do not take effect immediately, but rather present months or even years later. Many traumatic brain injuries require long term care and the costs associated with this care can be crippling. Most traumatic brain injuries are terrible not only for the injured person, but also for his or her friends and family, who suffer from the frequent emotional and personality changes just as much. The costs of treating these injuries, as well as the emotional costs of living day-to-day with the symptoms, should be carried by those who are responsible. It is only fair. It is therefore important to meet with a lawyer who can review your situation to determine if you and your family should fairly receive compensation for the injury.
