What You Need To Know: Statistics About Traumatic Brain Injury (Tbi)

Posted by Frederick Altschuler | Aug 04, 2016 | 0 Comments

It can happen in an instant: an accident occurs, and you or a loved one suffers traumatic brain injury (TBI). If you're fortunate, it'll prove a relatively easy injury to recover from. If not, you or your loved one could suffer from a lifetime of injury and paralysis or even death. Recognizing the facts about TBI can help you decide whether or not to pursue legal action following an incident.

Consult the Expert

The TBI lawyer Long Island residents rely on to help them learn more about what to do following an injury is Frederick W. Altschuler. When you make an appointment with our law offices, we'll answer any questions you have about traumatic brain injuries and counsel you on where to go from here. Every case requires individualized guidance.

The Basic Facts

The CDC estimates that 1.7 million Americans deal with traumatic brain injury each year, 52,000 of which die and 275,000 of which experience hospitalization and long-term effects. While 80 percent are released from the emergency room, they could still suffer from some residual effects and require treatment. These bills add up quickly, as does any time the injured party spends missing work during recovery.

Types of TBIs

Traumatic brain injury includes but is not limited to:

  • Concussion
  • Open head injuries
  • Shaken baby syndrome
  • Contusion
  • Anoxic brain injury

Any vehicular accident, fall or sudden impact to the head can lead to a brain injury. If you even suspect a head injury, get to the ER.

If you or someone you love experienced TBI, contact the law offices of Frederick W. Altschuler as soon as possible. We'll go over the facts of your case and let you know if you or your family is entitled to compensation. Compensation could be the key to being able to afford immediate treatment, to keep your finances afloat and to afford long-term therapy and care.
