Brain injuries occur when there is damage to the tissue and blood vessels of the brain.
Many people suffer brain injuries in car, truck and motorcycle accidents, falls, explosions, and other trauma that can result from other peoples' negligence.
Statistics of brain injury cases are staggering, just in the U.S., where 1.7 million people each year suffer brain injuries and more than 50,000 victims die from them. If the injuries do not kill the victims, they cause serious, life-altering damage to the brain, leaving the victims crippled or with traumatic, lasting memory loss, perhaps causing loss of eyesight or hearing, chronic pain, and many other catastrophic lasting side effects (data from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention).
Brain injury symptoms are many and varied but they may include concussion, loss of consciousness, neurological issues, seizures, eye focus problems, dizziness, disorientation, amnesia, and brain swelling from fluid or blood (causing extreme pain and possibly death). Even if there are no symptoms but you have incurred a traumatic blow to the head, you or a loved one should seek medical attention for yourself and secure appropriate legal counsel.
Due to someone else's negligence, victims of brain injuries and their families and beneficiaries may be awarded money damages for a variety of reasons. They may recover damages for the following:
Current and future medical expenses
Lost wages now and for the future
Loss of quality of life and the ability to provide companionship to loved ones
Physical pain and suffering
Destruction of personal property
