Head Injury Lawyers
It is estimated that over 5 million people in the United States are currently suffering disabilities due to head injuries including traumatic brain injuries, acquired brain injuries, closed head injuries, penetrating head injuries and anoxic brain injuries. Statistics show that each year approximately 270,000 people will experience a moderate or severe brain injury and approximately 70,000 people will die as a result of their injury. Of those injured survivors, 80,000 will suffer significant and often permanent disabilities.
Over 50% of all head injuries are caused by automobile accidents, motorcycle accidents, trucking accidents, bicycle accidents and pedestrian accidents.
Traumatic brain injury (TBI), also called acquired brain injury or simply head injury, occurs when a sudden trauma, such as a car accident, causes damage to the brain. The damage can be confined to one area of the brain or involve more than one area of the brain, depending upon the extent of the head injury.
Recovering from a severe head injury or brain injury, as the result of a traffic accident, may be difficult and costly. If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in a traffic accident that has resulted in a brain injury or severe head injury, you should consult with an experienced traffic accident lawyer to find out your rights.
