Brain Injury Lawyer
The brain is one of the most complex organs in our body. It controls all of our voluntary and involuntary actions that include breathing, pumping of the heart, muscle movement and much more. A brain injury can range from a blow to your head to a tumor.
The brain is a very delicate organ and if injured, can have drastically life altering changes. Modern science only understands so much about the brain and how it repairs after severe injuries. Currently, there have been advances in treatments but the success rates are lower compared to treatments on other organs.
Most common causes of brain injuries:
- Falls or trips
- Vehicle-related collisions
- Sports injuries
The rehabilitation process can take months and even years to make progress. Treatment includes cognitive therapies, speech therapy, physical therapy, and neurobehavioral therapy. Each year there are various studies and new techniques to improve the rehabilitation outcomes. Many of the treatments are combined with medications to improve progress and overall quality of life. Moderate brain injury treat is estimated to cost upwards of 1 million dollars.
Causes of Brain Injury
Most brain injuries are attributed to physical trauma in the form of a fall/slip, physical abuse, or car accident. While we do have safety precautions to prevent different scenarios such as hitting your head after a car accident, there are additional factors that influence the outcome. According to the CDC over 55% of fatal car accidents were attributed to not wearing seat belts in teens ages 13-20.
