Brain Injury & Head Injury Lawyers: Traumatic brain injuries are often permanent, always life-changing, and affect the lives of both victims and their families. These injuries, whether involving permanent paralysis or not, are often caused by the negligence of others. Some are caused by surgical error, playground accidents, birth injury, automobile or motorcycle collisions, construction site mishaps, chemical exposure, defective products, or machinery failures.
Every year, millions of people in the U.S. suffer brain injuries. More than half are serious enough to require the injured person to be rushed to the hospital. The worst injuries can lead to permanent brain damage or death.
Half of all traumatic brain injuries are due to motor vehicle accidents. Symptoms of a traumatic brain injury may not appear until days or weeks following the injury. Serious traumatic brain injuries need emergency treatment.
According to the National Center for Injury Prevention, 1.5 million Americans sustain a brain injury each year. Of those, 50,000 die and over 1 million are treated in hospitals. Many of these victims are children, who are most at risk. Almost 500,000 children suffer serious brain injuries as a result of accidents each year. If you or a loved one has signs of moderate or severe traumatic brain injury, you should first receive immediate medical attention. Little can be done to reverse the initial brain damage caused by trauma, but medical personnel will attempt to stabilize someone with traumatic brain injury and focus on preventing further injury.
