Traumatic Brain Injuries

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) occurs as a result of a trauma to the head causing damage, or an injury to the brain that interferes with its normal function. Resulting effects of a TBI may range from mild to severe and may include concussion, impaired thinking, memory loss, behavioral changes or depression, loss of coordination, changes in sensation, or even paralysis or coma, among other symptoms. There is also a wide range of outcomes associated with TBI ranging from total recovery to disability, or death.

The U.S. Centers For Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports the following TBI Statistics for the United States population, highlighting the scope of these serious and preventable injuries:

  • In 2010 approximately 2.5 million ER visits, hospitalizations, or deaths were were associated with TBI. TBI contributed to the deaths of more than 50,000 people.1
  • In 2009, an estimated 248,418 children (19 years of age or younger) received ER treatment for recreation and sports-related injuries that included a diagnosis of concussion or TBI.2
  • From 2006–2010, falls were the leading cause of TBI (40.5%), followed by blunt trauma (15.5%), motor vehicle accidents (14.3%), assaults (10.7%), and unknown causes (19.0%). These percentages however, vary by ages group. For example, falls accounted for more than 55% of TBIs among children ages 0 to 14 years of age, while falls accounted for more than 81% of TBIs in adults aged 65 years or older.3
  • TBI death rates also varied by age between 2006-2010. For example, falls were the leading cause of death for persons 65 years or older, while motor vehicle crashes were the leading cause for children and young adults ages 5-24 years.4

How can the Weinberg Law Firm help in the case of traumatic brain injury?

Resulting short or long-term TBI disabilities will depend on the severity and location of the brain injury. Individuals affected may require surgery; physical, occupational or speech therapies, and/or psychological support. It may become impossible for an individual who has suffered a traumatic brain injury to care for him- or herself. In any and all of these cases, compensation may help TBI victims and their families cope with their new medical, psychological and familial situation. It may be useful to speak to an experienced attorney who has helped individuals in similar situations.
