How Often Do Brain Injuries Occur?
Since there is no limit to the ways brain injuries can occur, including motor vehicle collisions, motorcycle crashes, medical malpractice, and slip and fall occurrences to name a few, the frequency of their happening is more often than most would imagine.
According to the Centers for Disease Control each year throughout the U.S., approximately:
- 57,000 traumatic brain injury-related deaths occur
- 288,000 brain injury patients are admitted to hospitals
- 2.5 million people visit emergency rooms for brain injuries
Injuries to the brain are not only common but have some of the most severe consequences of any injury, which can change the lives of the injured and their families going forward.
Why Would I Need An Attorney After Suffering From A Brain Injury?

- Ability to make informed decisions
