A closer look at brain injuries
Brain injuries occur all too frequently in the United States. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that millions of people sustain a TBI each year and need to be hospitalized. And among the injured, thousands of people nationwide die each year as a result of a TBI.
Types of Brain Injuries
A brain injury can occur for many different reasons. But in many cases, many brain injuries occur because of someone else's reckless or negligent behavior. That's why it's critical you talk to an attorney as soon as possible if you or a loved one sustain a TBI.
Warning Signs of Traumatic Brain Injury
Sometimes, a brain injury can be obvious. But often, it might be clear right away if a TBI has occurred. And the longer you wait to seek medical treatment, the more danger you or a loved one could be in. So don't delay. See a doctor right away. Then contact us.
Spinal cord injuries affect thousands each year
Thousands of people sustain serious spinal cord injuries every year in the United States. In some cases, some spinal cord injuries result in temporary physical problems. But in many cases, spinal cord injuries cause permanent, physical damage.
Types of Spinal Cord Injuries
There are many different kinds of spinal cord injuries. But one of the most common - and most serious - is paralysis. Paralysis may involve the loss of movement in all four limbs (quadriplegia) or loss of movement in the lower half of the body (paraplegia).
Paralysis or spinal cord injury victims tend to have shorter life spans. The medical costs associated with a spinal cord injury can also be staggering. That's why it's important to make sure you and your family receive the money you rightfully deserve for all your accident-related expenses.
