Traumatic brain injury a major cause of disability and death

Many Miami residents have friends and relatives affected by a brain injury. Brain injuries are often quite serious and can happen in a variety of circumstances. When a brain injury is the result of another person's negligence, it may be a case of wrongful death.

A traumatic brain injury is something that many Miami residents have heard of. TBIs can occur in sports, car accidents and many other activities. It is caused by a bump or jolt to the head which affects the brain's regular functioning. A TBI can range from mild to severe and can even cause a person's death. Nearly 50,000 Americans die from a traumatic brain injury each year while another 2.8 million visit the emergency room due to a brain injury. Circumstances that result in a brain injury include falls, car crashes, being struck by something and assaults.

A traumatic brain injury can happen in an instant yet affect a family forever. These events can lead a family to scramble to pay for medical bills or try and figure out who will now be the one to pay the bills. Losing a loved one to a brain injury is a sad and tragic event. If the brain injury occurs because of another person's negligence, it is important to hold them accountable for their mistake.

A legal professional who specializes in personal injury can help get answers for the family as to what happened to cause the injury. They can help hold the negligent person or company responsible and compensation may be available for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, funeral expenses and other damages.

A traumatic brain injury is a common occurrence in the U.S. affecting millions each year. Brain injuries can result in a person needing expensive medical care for the rest of their lives or even their death. It is important to hold a person responsible for causing a brain injury so that they do not harm anyone else.
