Introduction to Brain Injuries
Traumatic brain injury is one of the most significant and fast-moving areas of personal injury law. There are approximately 1.2 million people who sustain a traumatic brain injury every year. That means about one brain injury is occurring every 23 seconds.
Sometimes, traumatic brain injury is referred to as the silent epidemic because it happens so frequently. Medical science is far more advanced today compared to 15 or 20 years ago regarding the diagnosis and treatment of traumatic brain injury. As a result, more people are surviving and living longer after suffering a brain injury, thereby creating new and significant challenges for their medical providers and legal advocates.
Traumatic brain injury may occur as the result of many different types of accidents, including motor vehicle collisions, boating accidents, slips, trips, or falls, construction site injuries, or airplane or train accidents. If you or a loved one has sustained a traumatic brain injury as the result of someone else's negligence, you may be entitled to recover compensation for your injury. The attorneys at the Sinas Dramis Law Firm have experience working with the victims of brain injury and obtaining the compensation which they deserve.
