The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimate that 1.4 million Americans suffer a traumatic brain injury every year. While some may heal from such injuries, many others will not, forever changing their lives. In addition to the number of people who receive such injuries per year, the CDC also estimates that over 5 million Americans need long-term care due to their brain injury. If you or a loved one has sustained a traumatic brain injury, and are unsure where to turn for help, contact us at the team practice of Landay and Roberts. We’ll help you recover the compensation you need for healing.
A traumatic brain injury is the result of a sudden impact, essentially shifting the brain around in your skull. Depending on the intensity of the force of impact, the brain could become bruised or damaged as a result. These types of sudden force impacts can occur anytime, anywhere.
Listed below are just a few examples of accidents that lead to traumatic brain injuries:
The first step after experiencing a head injury is to get examined by a doctor or other medical professional to determine the extent of your injury. You may need to give testimony to any law enforcement that becomes involved. If motor vehicles are involved, you will also be contacted by insurance companies for your testimony as well. This constant contact can feel overwhelming, which is why we advocate for having legal representatives present.
The most important aspect is an evaluation by a medical professional in a hospital setting. In addition, people are urged to keep an eye out for symptoms of brain injuries that may crop up in the days to follow. Listed below are common symptoms of brain injury that clients and their loved ones should be aware of in the days to come.
If you or a loved one are experiencing these symptoms, see the doctor immediately. Afterwards, contact us at Landay and Roberts to speak with a member of our team about a free case consultation.
