Do Not Underestimate The Dangers Of Traumatic Brain Injury
Head injuries used to be dismissed as “getting your bell rung,” and were often treated with an ice pack and some rest. In recent decades, however, the public has come to learn just how devastating traumatic brain injuries can be. According to the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, there are about 1.7 million traumatic brain injury cases occurring in the United States each year. Of those, up to 900,000 result in lifelong or long-term disabilities.
If you or a loved one has suffered a TBI due to another party’s negligence, you have the right to pursue compensation for medical bills, lost wages, reduced earning capacity and other damages with the help of an experienced and tenacious attorney. That’s what you can expect when you contact The Ring Law Firm, APLC.
How Brain Injuries Occur And Common Consequences
People suffer a TBI in a variety of common circumstances caused by negligence, including:
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Pedestrian and bicyclist accidents
- Slip-and-fall accidents
- Due to defects in products like helmets (meant for football, baseball, bicycle, etc.) that overstate safety benefits
- Assault and other violent incidents
- Due to falling objects
Depending on the force of the impact, brain injuries result in a wide range of symptoms and long-term impairments, including:
- Severe and persistent headaches
- Memory loss and difficulty focusing
- Changes in personality and mood
- Depression or aggression (even with no prior history of either type of mood disorder)
- Brain bleeding, coma and even death
Suffering a severe traumatic brain injury is often life-altering in a uniquely devastating way. Unlike losing a limb or being partially paralyzed (both terrible in their own right), a brain injury can fundamentally change a person’s personality and their capacity to think and process information in the way that they used to. Injuries this serious require and deserve significant financial compensation.
