A traumatic brain injury is often caused by motor vehicle collisions. Other contributing injuries include motorcycle crashes, slips and falls, sports injuries, and physical assaults.
The latest data shows an average of 2.8 million traumatic brain injuries occurring in the United States every year, with over a quarter-million hospitalizations and 50,000 deaths.
Traumatic brain injuries often create devastating and life-changing consequences for the victims, which inevitably alters family dynamics. People who sustain traumatic brain injuries sometimes need lifelong medical care, leaving victims and their families riddled with anxiety about what the future holds. Mounting medical bills and the need for longtime care (if not lifelong) will have families wondering if their lives will ever return to normal.
During the disorienting time after your injury, it can feel as though there are more questions than answers. We at Allen & Allen understand that your life has suddenly changed, perhaps forever. Our mission is to protect you during your recovery, fight diligently to protect your rights, and secure the financial compensation you deserve.
