TBI: The Silent Epidemic
About 1.5 million people in America suffer a traumatic brain injury every year. That's more than six times the number of people who are diagnosed with breast cancer, HIV/AIDS, spinal cord injuries and multiple sclerosis combined.
About 50,000 people die of a traumatic brain injury (TBI) annually and another 5.3 million people are currently living with a disability due to a traumatic brain injury.
The attorneys of Greene Broillet & Wheeler, LLP, have a long and successful record of representing people who suffered brain injuries in accidents caused by negligence. We also represent the family members of those who died a wrongful death due to brain injuries.
What Is a Traumatic Brain Injury?
Traumatic brain injuries are primarily caused by a direct blow to the head. Indirect head trauma, which often occurs in car accidents or falls, can also lead to traumatic brain injuries.
Symptoms of traumatic brain injury range from persistent headache, confusion, dizziness, memory loss and personality changes to blurred vision and ringing in the ears, to trouble thinking, concentrating, speaking and moving. Brain injuries can lead to coma and death.
