Many types of accidents can result in a Traumatic Brain Injury. Traumatic Brain Injuries, or TBIs, are defined as any type of head injury that disrupts the normal function of the brain. TBIs are often the result of a direct blow to a head suffered in a car accident or fall, but the can also be caused by medical mistakes, defective products and many other types of accidents.
If you or a loved one sustained a Traumatic Brain Injury due to someone else’s negligence, you will need an experienced, dedicated legal team by your side to help protect your rights. These serious accidents can result in permanent disabilities, significant loss of motor functions, or even death. At Fellows Hymowitz Rice, we fight hard to protect the rights of those whose lives have been changed forever due to a Traumatic Brain Injury.
Unlike many other types of Catastrophic Injuries, Traumatic Brain Injuries can affect every patient differently. Depending on what part of the brain was impacted and how the injury was sustained, different cognitive or motor functions could be permanently lost or damaged. Patients that suffer a TBI may need to learn to talk, walk, or even feed themselves all over again. The symptoms of a TBI can also be more subtle, but just as devastating, such as depression, and impaired thinking or sensation.
Traumatic Brain Injuries impact millions of patients and families throughout the country. Some of the statistics about TBIs may shock you:
- TBIs contribute to approximately 30% of all injury deaths in the U.S. every year
- An estimated 1.7 million Americans sustain a TBI every year, and of those injured over 50,000 are killed annually
- An estimated 5.3 million Americans are living with a TBI related disability
No amount of compensation can fully make up for lost brain function in you or a loved one. However, you have the right to seek justice and compensation to help pay for medical expenses, nursing care, physical therapy and the pain & suffering you and your loved ones are forced to endure.
