Miami Brain Injury Attorney
Brain injuries can be devastating. They often require extensive and expensive medical care including surgery, physical rehabilitation, and cognitive therapy. Lawsuits involving brain injuries raise complex medical issues and require time, individual attention, and considerable financial resources to properly pursue.
These injuries can cause decreased muscle tone, nerve damage, paralysis, and many other significant injuries. Even small concussions can have serious consequences. In fact, only recently has the severity and long-term effects of concussions been at the forefront of the medical community’s attention.
“A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury. Health care professionals may describe a concussion as a “mild” brain injury because concussions are usually not life-threatening. Even so, their effects can be serious.” – The U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
The CDC reports that an average of approximately 1.7 million people sustain a traumatic brain injury each year. These injuries can be caused by a jolt to the head, as well as direct trauma. Brain injuries contribute to a substantial number of deaths and permanent disability each year, contributing to 30.5% of all injury-related deaths in the United States.
Because the brain can impair movement, coordination, balance, speech, sensation, emotion, and cognitive function, these serious injuries can limit a person’s ability to work, enjoy life, and engage in many of the activities that most take for granted. They can also lead to surgery, years of therapy, crushing financial debt, and a lifetime of physical and emotional pain.
The severity of brain injuries can vary tremendously. However, even mild brain injuries can cause a lifetime of cognitive deficits. Brain trauma, no matter how mild, is an issue that needs to be addressed immediately. Injuries that go unchecked are at a high risk of getting worse, so it is important that if you suspect any sort of brain injury that you consult a professional.
