Piecing Your Life Back Together After A Traumatic Brain Injury
Few injuries are more devastating – or more costly – than those affecting the brain. Nearly 100,000 people sustain life-altering traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) every year, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The collective financial toll of those injuries is more than $75 billion each year.
TBIs have a profound impact on both the victims and their loved ones. Daily life may never look the same. Long-term dreams and goals may no longer be possible. The personality changes as well as mental and physical impairments that stem from a TBI may make the person you once knew seem no longer recognizable. Add to that the tremendous financial burden of ongoing medical care, and you may feel like your entire life and future are a puzzle you no longer know how to piece together.

How TBIs Happen
Countless causes can contribute to TBIs, but the most common include:
- Vehicle accidents, especially those involving high speeds, multiple vehicles, bicycle-car collisions or semi trucks
- Falls from stairs, ladders or construction equipment
- Slip-and-falls that involve a direct impact to the head (especially among older populations)
- Serious sports injuries involving forceful impacts, including concussions
When negligence plays a role in the head injury, you may be entitled to financial recovery. Attorney Whitlock can evaluate your case and help you determine how best to pursue compensation – and who to hold accountable.
