Tennessee Traumatic Brain Injury Attorney

Traumatic Brain Injuries

Traumatic brain injuries can be devastating on not only the victims, but also their families. The cost of treating these injuries is astronomical, and the process of dealing with traumatic brain injuries is physically and emotionally exhausting for everyone involved. If you or a loved one has suffered a head injury as a result of someone else's negligence, you would be well-advised to consult with an experienced Tennessee personal injury lawyer who specializes in catastrophic injury cases.

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is defined as a blow or a jolt to the head or a penetrating head injury that disrupts the function of the brain. The severity of such a brain injury can be mild or severe. It can result in an extended period of unconsciousness or amnesia after the injury. These types of injuries can result in short or long-term problems with memory and independent function.

The Brain Injury Association of America estimates that of the 1.4 million people who sustain a traumatic brain injury each year in the United States, 50,000 die, 235,000 are hospitalized and 1.1 million are treated and released from an emergency department. The leading causes of TBI are:

Direct medical costs and indirect costs such as loss of earnings and productivity totaled to an estimated $60 billion per year in the United States. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control estimates that at least 3 million Americans currently have a long-term or lifelong need for help to perform activities of daily living as a result of traumatic brain injuries. TBI can cause a wide range of functional problems affecting a person's thinking, language, learning, emotions, behavior and/or sensation. It can also cause epilepsy and increase the risk of conditions such as Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease and other brain disorders that become more prevalent with age.
