In a single year, about 2.5 million people visited emergency rooms across the U.S. for the treatment of traumatic brain injuries (TBIs). Even a mild TBI is a serious matter, as it can result in a wide range of symptoms and effects that can impair your ability to work or engage in your usual activities. Severe TBIs can leave victims permanently disabled, and medical care is often ongoing on an indefinite basis.
It is important to recognize how brain injuries typically happen, both for prevention purposes and to identify whether you might have important legal rights following an injury. Many TBIs result from accidents caused by other parties, and in this situation, victims can seek compensation for their losses from the responsible parties. The following are some common causes of TBIs that might lead to an injury claim:
- Traffic accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Getting struck by a falling object or against an object
These accidents can happen at any time, whether you are working, running errands, or simply walking down the street. While a TBI can happen in an instant, but it can have a lasting and costly impact on your life. Many victims incur extensive losses, including for:
- Medical care (past and future)
- Lost earnings (past and future)
- Pain and suffering
- Permanent impairments
If another party’s negligence resulted in your TBI, you can protect your rights and your future by speaking with a Campbell brain injury attorney who can assess your legal options.
