When a person’s head strikes an object, such as a car door or dashboard; their head is violently shaken. This violent impact can cause major damage to the brain. People who suffer head injuries may be left with severe limitations in their ability to reason, feel sensations, communicate, and remember.
The victims of traumatic brain injury may be rendered incapable of moving limbs or regulating various bodily functions. Traumatic brain injuries can also lead to changes in behavior. At worst, brain injury can lead to coma, a vegetative state, or even death.
The Facts on Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention; approximately 1.7 million Americans suffer traumatic brain injuries each year. 52,000 of them die each year, and 275,000 are hospitalized. The people most likely to suffer a traumatic brain injury are very young children, teenagers between 15-19 years old, and adults who are over 65.
A Traumatic Brain Injury is caused by a blow to the head that disrupts the normal function of the brain. Not all blows or jolts to the head result in a TBI. The severity of a TBI may range from “mild” (i.e., a brief change in mental status or consciousness) to “severe” (i.e., an extended period of unconsciousness or memory loss after the injury). Most TBIs that occur each year are mild, commonly called concussions.
One of the leading causes of traumatic brain injury in the U.S. are auto accidents. If the victim’s brain injury was caused by someone else’s negligence; for example by the negligence of an at-fault driver causing a traffic accident, then the victim may be entitled to compensation for their injuries.
Your Rights as a (TBI) Victim
Unfortunately, treatment for brain injuries can be both expensive and lengthy. Even the tests required to diagnose a brain injury are costly, and subsequent treatments may include hospitalization, surgeries, medications, and extensive rehabilitation therapies. As a result, injured victims often seek compensation for their medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, etc.
