Brain Injury Attorney

Brain Injury

When an accident happens, you check for obvious injuries. Is anyone unconscious or bleeding? Can you and your passenger move their arms and legs? Even if everyone appears to be okay, you or your passenger may have suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI), which is not so obvious. Scientific evidence shows that there can be brain damage when a head injury has happened even if there was no loss of consciousness. Brain injuries can cause long-term physical disability as well as intellectual, emotional, and social trauma. So, always seek medical attention after an accident.

 

Statistics

Agencies like the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gather statistics on injuries and death in motor vehicle accidents. But, there is no national database that specifically compiles head injuries and traumatic brain injuries. Through government statistics, consumer safety studies, and neuroscientists we know:

  • Millions of people each year suffer minor personal injuries to the head. Usually, the symptoms disappear on their own.
  • Motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of head injuries in the U.S. Car accidents cause approximately 28% of traumatic brain injuries. Another 20% are caused by sports injuries. Other common causes are physical assaults and household falls.
  • There are 500,000 hospitalizations for head injuries each year and about half of those are due to traffic accidents.
  • Traumatic brain injuries account for about a third of all deaths in the U.S.
