Successful and Compassionate Brain Injury Lawyer
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), at least 1.7 million cases of traumatic brain injury (TBI) occur yearly across the United States, and this type of injury is a contributing factor in nearly one out of three injury-related deaths every year.
The leading causes of traumatic brain injury, also known as severe concussion, include falls (35.2 percent); car accidents, truck accidents and other types of motor vehicle collisions (17.3 percent); being struck by or against objects (16.5 percent); and assault (10 percent). Nearly one out of five TBI-related emergency room visits involve children under the age of 4 years, while slightly more than that number involve adults older than 75.
