Traumatic Brain Injuries

Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyers

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) reports that about 1.4 million Americans sustain a traumatic brain injury (TBI) each year. Also referred to as intracranial injury, TBI results from any type of outside force causing damage to the brain. In many cases, victims of TBI will be permanently disabled or die as a result of their injuries.

If you or a loved one has sustained a traumatic brain injury, the highly skilled brain injury attorneys at the law firm of Bertoldo, Baker, Carter & Smith can help you seek compensation for your injuries and losses. We are dedicated to helping you get through the legal process as efficiently and successfully as possible.

Causes of TBI

Any type of trauma to the head can cause a traumatic brain injury.

According to the CDC, the leading causes of TBI include:

  • Falls, accounting for about 28 percent of traumatic brain injuries
  • Motor vehicle accidents, 20 percent
  • Collisions with objects that are moving or stationary, 19 percent (Officially, these cases are referred to asstruck by/against events.)
  • Assaults, 11 percent

Blasts are the number one cause of traumatic brain injuries in active military personnel who are operating in battle zones.

Symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injury

The precise TBI symptoms a victim experiences will depend on the nature and severity of the injury he/she sustained.

In many cases, traumatic brain injury victims will experience some combination of:

  • Blurry vision
  • Changes in behavior or mood
  • Changes in sleeping patterns
  • Concentration problems
  • Confusion
  • Convulsions
  • Difficulty balancing
  • Difficulty speaking
  • Dizziness
  • Fatigue
  • Headache
  • Loss of consciousness (Research indicates that individuals who sustain injuries to the left side of the brain tend to remain unconscious longer than those with right brain injuries.)
  • Memory loss
  • Nausea and/or vomiting
  • Numbness in the limbs
  • Slurred speech

TBI Statistics

The following statistics were compiled by the CDC:

  • Men are 1.5 times more likely than women to sustain a traumatic brain injury
  • Those who are most likely to sustain a TBI are individuals younger than 4 years old, as well as those between the ages of 15 and 19 years old
  • The total cost (medical bills along with lost productivity) of TBI each year in the U.S. is approximately $60 billion
  • More than 5.3 million Americans need help performing day-to-day activities as a result of suffering from TBI
