A brain injury is a disruption in normal brain functioning. Whether this is a momentary problem or a long-term disability depends on whether it was a mild, moderate, or severe injury.
According to the Brain Trauma Foundation, about 2 million people suffer TBI every year. Approximately 50,000 TBIs each year result in death and more than 80,000 TBI victims suffer permanent disability.
In Alabama, approximately 10,000 residents suffer TBI each year, according to the Alabama Head Injury Foundation. 1,500 Alabama residents become disabled because of a brain injury every year.
It takes a considerable amount of force on someone’s head to cause a traumatic brain injury. Unfortunately, a number of scenarios are known to lead to concussions and more severe brain injuries.
The nonprofit BTF, which conducts clinical research to provide solutions and raise public awareness and understanding about brain injury, says the most under-reported, under-diagnosed and under-estimated head injury by far are concussions or mild TBIs. The BTF says:
If you were injured due to someone else’s actions, you may have the right to bring a personal injury claim against them in court. Depending on where and how you were hurt, you may first have the opportunity to work with the other person’s auto or home owner’s insurance. However, victims of TBIs are unable to settle with insurers for many reasons. Very often the insurer doesn’t believe their client is at fault or the policy amount is far below the settlement you need to recover and move forward with life.
If you can’t reach a beneficial settlement with an insurer, you need an experienced catastrophic injury lawyer to help you bring a personal injury lawsuit in court. During a trial, you will need to prove the other person’s negligence led to your injuries. With the help of a good traumatic brain injury attorney who understands the devastating effects of a traumatic brain injury and has the skill to tell your story to a jury, you may be able to obtain compensation for your accident-related:
