Brain injuries are among the most serious and devastating that a person can experience. This is largely due to the fact that unlike most bodily organs, the brain is incapable of regenerating itself. When it is injured, then, the only way to regain lost functioning is by learning new ways to do it. This isn’t always possible, however, which is why so many people with traumatic brain injury, or TBI, end up requiring around-the-clock care for the rest of their lives.
If you have suffered a brain injury because of someone else’s negligence, it is crucial to protect your rights. Because of your injury, you will face an uphill battle not only in terms of recovery and rehabilitation but in terms of paying for it all. Etehad Law understands the fine nuances that go along with sustaining this type of injury and successfully holding responsible parties accountable. Our experienced head injury attorneys can help you obtain the compensation that you are owed while building a case that will help to protect your rights during this difficult time.
According to the Centers for Disease Control, approximately 1.4 million Americans suffer from brain injuries every year. Of that number, around 235,000 require hospitalization, and around 50,000 die. Falls, car crashes and other accidents are typically behind these types of injuries, but assaults and defective products are sometimes to blame too. When accidents cause brain injuries, there is typically a negligent party to blame. Unfortunately, the liable party often tries to evade responsibility for the accidents that they cause, leaving plaintiffs like you footing the bill for a head injury that will cost tens of thousands of dollars, or more, to treat–and that doesn’t include about your pain and suffering, loss of income, and other losses.
Accidents account for a significant portion of head injuries. Car accidents, in particular, are to blame for a large percentage of brain injury incidents. Accidents involving bicycles and motorcycles are common culprits as well. Slip-and-fall accidents also often result in serious injury to the head.
A head injury can be a very insidious thing. At first, you may feel okay. Oftentimes, underlying symptoms are so subtle that brain injury goes undetected for some time. This is precisely why it’s so important to seek medical attention in the aftermath of an accident–even if you seem to be okay. It’s especially important to do so if your head was struck in any way. Our skilled attorneys have handled countless head injury cases and know what to look for. They will work with you to help prove that you suffered a brain injury through someone else’s negligence.
As reported by the CDC, around 5.3 million people, or 2 percent of the U.S. population, require permanent, daily help due to brain injuries. Even if you are able to recover fairly quickly, you will undoubtedly face enormous medical bills. Brain injury victims also often require long-term rehabilitation and physical therapy. They often have to miss a lot of work and suffer from significant losses of income.
