Head / Brain Injuries

Motor vehicle and traffic accidents are the leading cause of serious traumatic brain injury, such as a skull fracture. Falls and assaults are the next leading category.

In the majority of these cases, the injured person is not to blame for the injury. In most cases, the person or persons liable for a head or brain injury is the individual or company directly involved with the accident and their insurance carrier.

Over 1.4 million Americans suffer a traumatic brain injury (TBI) every year. Of those, 50,000 die and over 200,000 need hospitalization and/or brain injury treatment, and many experience altered or lost functional ability.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that, in the United States, there are currently 5.3 million individuals suffering from a traumatic brain injury that will have life-long effects. The emotional distress, physical challenges and financial burdens that these victims and their families face are beyond what they ever could have predicted.

Possible causes of a traumatic brain injury are everywhere, especially due to automobile accidents. One cannot predict or plan for a life changing event such as a traumatic brain injury. Furthermore, many individuals do not have the resources that it would take to make normal life possible after a brain injury.

Severe TBI can cause death, coma, permanent vegetative state, chronic under-arousal, serious disorders of swallowing or communication, seizures, storming, muscle paralysis, muscle spasticity, abnormal bone growth, apathy, disinhibition, dementia or psychosis. Moderate TBI can cause substantial lifetime impairments of cognitive, visual, motor, emotional, social, sexual or vocational functioning with ongoing need for home assistance, job assistance and therapies. Mild TBI causes headache and subtle decrements in attention, memory, information processing speed, information synthesis, organization and task execution associated with anxiety, depression, irritability and lost self confidence.
