The most important part of the human body is the brain. All other functions of the body would not be able to work without the brain telling them to begin, end, or continue operation. That is why suffering a traumatic brain injury can be one of the most devastating injuries possible. Not only are they incredibly serious, but they can easily result in severe impairment, paralysis, and death. According to the Centers for Disease Control, 1.7 million traumatic brain injuries occur each year in the United States. Falls, motor vehicle accidents, and assaults are the leading causes of TBIs.
One of the most common types of traumatic brain injuries is a concussion. A concussion is an injury caused by a blow to the head or body that causes the brain to quickly move back and forth. Though less common, there are many more severe traumatic brain injuries that can be fatal if emergency medical attention is not promptly received. If you or a loved one has suffered a traumatic brain injury that may have resulted in death, you could be entitled to substantial recovery. The best way to determine if you are entitled to compensation is to schedule a consultation with the experienced traumatic brain injury attorneys at the Law Offices of Shane Smith as soon as possible.
