Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) cause a significant number of deaths and permanent disabilities every year. TBIs are typically caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head or a penetrating head injury that causes a disruption of normal brain function. A TBI can be diagnosed as mild all the way up to severe with lasting effects. Direct medical costs and indirect costs such as lost productivity due to TBI totaled about 60 Billion dollars in 2000 alone.
If you or a loved one has been the victim of a severe Traumatic Brain Injury, you may want to seek the help of a personal injury lawyer who can help fight for the compensation you deserve.
