The Brain Injury Association of America estimates that 2.4 million children and adults in the United States suffer a traumatic brain injury. Another approximately 800,000 people sustain an acquired brain injury from non-traumatic causes each year. While some people heal, many do not. It’s estimated that more than 5.3 million people live with a lifelong disability as a result of a traumatic brain injury.
Because the brain is the body’s most complicated organ, each injury that takes place to the brain is unique. That means no two people will recover from a brain injury the exact same way. In addition, when a person suffers a brain injury due to the reckless or careless actions of another, they can seek assistance from an attorney who specializes in brain injuries. But just like the brain injury itself, no two brain injury cases will be exactly alike. This can make the legal issues involved with trying to collect damages an extremely complicated and drawn out process.
