A traumatic brain injury, or TBI, can affect the lives of those who have suffered trauma to the brain. Brain injury victims are often left disabled and in need of years of rehabilitation. The scary thing is that a brain injury can happen in a flash.
According to the Centers for Disease and Control, more than one million people in America suffer brain injuries every year. The Center further estimates that over 5 million people in the country require long-term care as a result of a traumatic brain injury.
The cost of rehabilitation, medical bills, and loss of income can be immense. Don’t be left out of pocket. Our attorneys can help you recover costs from third parties to help cover your expenses.
