Have you or someone you know suffered a head injury due to someone else’s negligence?
People who suffer a head injury that leads to a traumatic brain injury (TBI) will most likely have to endure a life full of pain and complications. Reports show that head injuries and TBIs severely disable or kill more people aged 1-44 than any other cause. In fact, there are currently 5.3 million people in the United States that have suffered a severe head injury that caused permanent brain damage.
There are 3 types of TBI that can affect a person’s life:
- A mild TBI can cause headaches and periods of decreased information processing, attention, memory, organization execution, and task execution.
- A moderate TBI can cause life-long disabilities or impairments of visual, motor, emotional, cognitive, social, sexual, or vocational functioning.
- A severe TBI is very serious and can lead to a coma, permanent vegetative state, seizures, paralysis ,apathy, dementia, psychosis, and even death.
A head injury can occur for a number of reasons including:
- auto accidents
- slip and fall accidents
- acts of violence
- construction accidents
- workplace accidents
- sports injuries
