St. Louis Brain Injuries Lawyer
Take Accidents that Cause Brain Damage Seriously
Brain injuries, from concussions to traumatic brain injuries, have the
potential to cause great harm and life-altering consequences for the victim.
These injuries are very common in the United States, with 1.4 million
people affected every year. Approximately 235,000 of these brain injury
cases are serious enough to necessitate hospitalization, and 99,000 result
in some form of long-term disability for the individual. It is estimated
that 50,000 people end up dying from their brain injuries every year.
The effects an injury to the brain can have are varied, and may include
short- or long-term memory loss, seizures, loss of motor or nerve function,
loss of certain bodily systems, or coma. The circumstances in which these
injuries can be sustained also vary, and may involve
car accidents, sports accidents,
slip and fall and
construction or work site accidents. When an individual suffers a
catastrophic injury to the brain, then the victim may be entitled to monetary compensation
from the parties who are responsible. A personal injury lawyer can assist
you if you or a loved one has sustained a brain injury, providing you
with skilled and competent representation in your case against those at fault.
