The brain is more susceptible to injury that one might think. And whether caused by a violent attack or some accidental impact, the lasting effects of a brain injury can take years to materialize, often adversely altering an individual’s functionality and quality of life.
Although it would be ideal for such a horrific event to be extremely rare occurrence, the truth remains that 2 million people are affected by a traumatic brain injury -- including 52,000 deaths -- each year.
In many cases, these traumatic brain injuries aren’t the fault of the individuals suffering with the aftermath of such a condition.
Sometimes, the external force or incident that resulted in the injury reveals that another party is responsible for the damage done to the patient, either through an act of negligence or the involvement of faulty products.
If you slipped and fell or struck your head on a surface that should not have been present at all, you might have a compelling case on your hands if a connection could be made between such an incident and your brain injury. Then, if such liability can be proven, the resulting settlement would provide a much-needed aid to the medical expenses of brain injury patients.
As one might surmise, the medical care associated with as severe a condition as a traumatic brain injury is among the costliest in the industry. In the past, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have estimated that direct medical costs -- along with indirect costs, such as loss of productivity -- reached a whopping $60 billion in the United States. That’s why you need an experienced brain injury lawyer to represent you.
