Brain injuries that result from accidents can bring life-altering repercussions. It is estimated that over 5 million people in the United States have experienced a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Most in this group are forced to live with varying degrees of disability. Ordinary activities that must be performed to live independently, such as brushing one’s teeth and eating can be impossible tasks for those who suffer a TBI. If you or a loved one has suffered a traumatic brain injury, you should contact our firm without delay.
A TBI is the result of a change in how the brain functions due to damage from some external force or injury. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported the following incidents as some of the main causes of traumatic brain injuries (TBIs):
- Slip and Falls (40.5 %)
- Traffic accidents (14.3%)
- Striking injuries (15.5%)
In addition, statistics reveal that every year TBIs cause:
- 52,000 deaths
- 280,000 hospitalizations
- over 2 million ER visits.
If you or someone you love has been injured in an accident and you suspect has suffered a traumatic brain injury, seek all appropriate medical attention, including hospitalization.
