Traumatic Brain Injuries
Traumatic brain injuries, or TBIs, are more than just a bump on the head.
A TBI is a severe injury affecting the brain and central nervous system, and can have life-altering consequences. Every year, nearly 1.5 million people in America suffer from varying degrees of TBIs. Simply translated, every 21 seconds, someone in the United States sustains a traumatic brain injury.
Personal injury attorney Charles Draper of the Draper Law Office says, “TBI’s often result from a car, truck, pedestrian, boating, slip and fall, or other accident. These injuries can range from mild to severe, and in most cases, the recovery time depends on the circumstances under which the injuries were sustained.
TBI’s may lead to short or long-term cognitive impairments, such as memory loss and other symptoms. The effects of traumatic brain injuries are not easily predicted, and symptoms can manifest long after the initial accident. Early detection and treatment at a medical facility may prevent permanent damage.
If you or a loved one have suffered a traumatic brain injury after an accident — due to someone else’s negligence.. you’ll want a trusted and knowledgeable advocate on your side, to fight for the compensation you rightfully deserve.
