Recent data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that, on average, approximately 1.7 million people sustain a traumatic brain injury every year.


What Causes a TBI?

Traumatic brain injury usually results from a violent blow or jolt to the head or body, or an object penetrating the skull. Falls are the leading cause of traumatic brain injury in the United States. Falls also account for a majority of TBI’s among infants, children, and elderly adults.


Will my brain heal itself?

The brain doesn’t “bounce back” or heal from injury like other injuries to the body. Injuries to the brain can be severe enough to cause irreparable damage, long term complications or death.

Each year, traumatic brain injuries contribute to a substantial number of deaths and cases of permanent disability.

If you or someone you love has suffered a TBI due to someone else’s negligence, you are looking for relief. Generally speaking, when someone acts in a careless way and causes an injury to another person, under the legal principle of “negligence” the careless person will be legally liable for any resulting harm.

Proving negligence is the first step to recovery. The injured party must also prove that the negligence was a cause of the traumatic brain injury. To prove that negligence was a cause, the law requires proof that the negligent act was a substantial factor in causing the harm.

Brain MRI 15 imagesDon’t guess when it comes to your health. A brain injury requires a thorough medical examination. An MRI or CT scan will create a detailed view of the brain.

Immediate or delayed symptoms may include confusion, blurry vision, and concentration difficulty. Infants may cry persistently or be irritable. Treatment may involve rest, medication, and surgery. Recovery from a Traumatic Brain Injury varies based on the individual and the brain injury.

After a traumatic brain injury, it is important to document the accident, injuries and other related conversations, paperwork and expenses. Maintaining records and keeping everything organized is useful for any claims or lawsuits that result.
