Compensation for Brain Injuries
According to CDC statistics, brain injuries kill more than 50,000 people annually and cause long-term impairment for nearly 100,000 Americans. The CDC reports over 5 million U.S. citizens currently suffer from some form of traumatic brain injury, and many experts believe this reported figure is actually low – that the “real” numbers are much higher. Traumatic brain injury -- often abbreviated as TBI -- can present profound, often life-changing consequences. Although victims of mild TBI can fully recover, if certain injuries are not treated and rehabilitated effectively, life-long problems may persist.
The causes of traumatic brain injury can range from minor injuries to slip-and-falls to construction accident injuries. Coma, stroke, and an impairment of the body's ability to deliver oxygen to the brain are also top causes of the condition.
