Your brain is amazing. It houses your memories, helps you make quick decisions in trying situations, drives your creativity, and is uniquely yours. No other brain functions the way yours does. It makes you who you are.
So, what happens once your powerhouse, the largest organ in your body, is compromised due to a car accident or another traumatic event?
The brain may not have the physical ability to feel pain due to not having any pain receptors, but such a life-changing event certainly causes emotional pain for the individual left in the aftermath, as well as those caring for them.
According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs) affect nearly 1.7 million people in the United States every year.
Of that number, about 80 percent of injuries result in hospitalization and lifelong medical complications that cause great hardships for the individual and their family.
Often times, it can seem near impossible to find the proper support, care, and understanding needed from third parties involved such as insurance companies, hospitals, and unfortunately, even some law firms wanting to settle claims quickly and as inexpensively as possible without regard to your personal recovery.
When you are hit with a TBI, you need a lawyer who will fight any and all responsible parties to get you the justice you deserve.
