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.
