Who Can Pursue a Claim?
It is difficult to imagine how your life would change if you were to suffer a brain injury. The impact of such misfortune would be far-reaching and potentially devastating not only on the quality of your life, but also on those of your loved ones. Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is considered a leading cause of death for people aged 45 years and younger. There are several ways for a TBI to occur, but the leading offenders are motor vehicle accidents, firearms, falls, and sports injuries. As a society, we often underestimate the fragility of this vital part of our anatomy. Although difficult to accurately assess the number of people that currently suffer from a TBI, the numbers we do have are shocking, notwithstanding. In the United States, 1.5 million people are a recipient of a TBI each year, 50,000 of which die each year, & 85,000 of which go on to suffer long-term effects. Interestingly, males are nearly twice as likely to fall prey to a TBI, and African Americans have the highest death rate. Not surprisingly, there are more than 5.3 million people that are living with a TBI disability, and that number grows every day. Indented block Traumatic Brain Injuries seem to have the most lethal effect on the most susceptible members of our society; the very young, and the elderly. Between these two poles, TBIs are overwhelmingly prevalent with the 0-19 age group being at the highest risk for an incident occurring, and adults over the age of 75, once having the incident occur, are at the highest risk for hospitalization and death as a result.
