The effects of a Traumatic Brain Injury can be long lasting and life changing. According to the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention there are approximately 1.5 million people in the U.S. who suffer from a traumatic brain injury each year.
These injuries are common in many of our cases, and very often associated with slip and fall accidents, auto collisions, motorcycle accidents, and pedestrian accidents. The reason for this is, the brain is a delicate organ floating in fluid but surrounded by hard bone.
When the body experiences forces associated with the above accidents, the brain can be thrown against the skull several times. This causes damage to the brain in a broad manner. The most common symptoms experienced as the result are dizziness/vertigo, difficulty with concentration, seizures, chronic pain, loss of memory, difficulty with speech, fatigue, and even neurological damages resulting in loss of body function.
You Have Rights, and We Can Help
What makes these injuries even more difficult to live with is, the people suffering do not appear injured on the outside.
