Brain Injury – What You Need to Know
Did you know that nearly 1 Â½ million people sustain a traumatic brain injury each year in the United States? Of that 1 Â½ million, 50,000 people will die and 235,000 will be hospitalized. The Brain Injury Association of America defines a traumatic brain injury as “..a blow or jolt to the head or a penetrating head injury that disrupts the function of the brain…” Traumatic brain injuries can occur in a multitude of ways. We have seen many articles on the evening news about the effects blasts have on our military personnel who are stationed in war zones. However, here at home, we are not invulnerable to these terrible injuries. Traumatic brain injuries can be sustained in a fall, motor vehicle accident, assault or simply by being hit in the head by an object. Although some of these injuries can be mild, many are life changing for the recipient. Hospital and doctor bills can be devastating. Some victims will require care for the rest of their lives. The emotional impact on these victims and their families can be immeasurable. If you, or someone you know, have been the victim of a traumatic brain injury, you need to speak to an attorney who is experienced and knowledgeable in this area of the law. You need someone who will fight for your rights and work diligently to obtain the proper medical attention and financial compensation for you.
