A brain injury describes brain damage caused by an external force impacting the head. The outside force may be a bump, jolt or a penetrating wound. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, traumatic brain injuries make up a large portion of deaths in America each year, as well as many cases of permanent injury. Brain injuries are serious, and you deserve maximum compensation if you were injured as a result of someone else's negligence.
As experienced injury attorneys, every day we see the profound effect this type of injury can have on someone's life. The most common causes of brain injury in an injury case include the following:
- Car accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Truck accidents
- Workplace accidents
- Birth injuries
- Slip and falls
Brain injuries can have lifelong physical, mental and emotional ramifications. If you or your loved one suffered a TBI caused by someone else's carelessness, such as by a distracted driver or unsafe workplace, you may be eligible to pursue compensation for your injury. Compensation can be invaluable to your ability to get the right medical care, job re-training, replacement of lost wages and many other things you'll need because of the injury.
