Approximately 5.3 Million Americans suffer from traumatic brain injuries (TBI) and need long-term care, according to an estimate by the Center for Disease Control. Those who cope with TBI’s may encounter memory problems, decreased problem-solving skills, increased emotional response, or difficulty controlling temper. These symptoms may make it difficult to maintain employment and personal relationships. TBI’s also create a greater risk for neurological issues such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s and epilepsy.
Traumatic brain injuries occur when an external force or sheer acceleration impacts the head and injures the brain in a very serious way– such as motor vehicle accidents. Identifying a TBI can be difficult because the victim often does not become aware of any symptoms for days, weeks, or even months. If they go unnoticed for an extended period of time and medical care is not sought out, the risk of death increases exponentially and can even happen quite suddenly.
If you or a loved one has suffered this kind of injury because of the negligence of another person or party, speaking with an attorney may be the first step toward compensation.
