The idea that your life will be changed because of an injury is not something you like to think about. We know that accidents happen, but there are some injuries that can completely alter the way we live our daily lives.
Traumatic brain injuries are one of those types of injuries. They are dangerous, even the ones that don’t seem severe at first.
If you need an Aventura traumatic brain injury attorney because someone else’s negligence caused you harm, contact the Dante Law Firm, P.A.. Our team will work with you to get you the money you need to get through this.
Minor traumatic brain injuries are also known as concussions, something we know you are aware of. While concussions don’t seem like a big deal, they can be if not treated properly.
Lately, the public has become more aware of concussions because they have been linked to degenerative brain disease in professional athletes. Tens of thousands of teens play contact football in the US, whether for their school or a recreational league.
It is estimated that there are as many as 3.8 million concussions in the US per year from competitive sports and recreational activities. This number is probably low because it is also estimated that up to 50 percent of concussions go unreported.
If your child gets a concussion while playing a sport and is not removed from the game, their injury could become much worse because brain injuries have a cumulative effect if they aren’t allowed to heal.
Any coach or school that does not allow a child to heal after a suspect traumatic brain injury should be held liable for any further injuries.
More severe traumatic brain injuries can result in long-term disabilities. We see these injuries as a result of vehicle accidents, workplace accidents, violence, and any other ways someone could suffer a blow to the head.
One study points out that there has been little study on the cost that “traumatic brain injury patients pose to their families, careers, and society as a whole.” That same study indicated that by 2020, TBIs may become the leading cause of death and disability in the US.
For severe traumatic brain injuries, the costs have to be looked at in terms of lifelong care. This includes initial emergency care, continual treatment, home placement if needed, as well as the emotional wellbeing of the family.
Depending on the severity of a traumatic brain injury, you and your loved ones may be dealing with the consequences for a long time. Even minor TBIs can cost enormous amounts of money.
