North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia & West Virginia Attorneys Represent Victims of Traumatic Brain Injury
Knowledgeable counsel for catastrophic injury litigation
In the United States, someone becomes a victim of brain trauma every 23 seconds. Recent data reported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states that approximately 1.7 million people sustain a traumatic brain injury (TBI) each year in the United States. Of those:
- 52,000 die
- 275,000 are hospitalized
- 1.4 million are treated and released from an emergency department
A TBI is caused by a blow or jolt to the head or a penetrating head injury that disrupts the normal function of the brain. The leading causes of TBI are:
- Falls (35 percent)
- Motor vehicle-traffic crashes (17 percent)
- Struck by/against events (17 percent)
- Assaults (10 percent)
A victim can recover compensation in any case where another person caused the injury carelessly, recklessly or deliberately.
North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia & West Virginia attorneys offering compassionate counsel coupled with excellent advocacy
The attorneys at Marcari, Russotto, Spencer & Balaban possess the comprehensive knowledge and experience critical to effectively representing our clients and obtaining the maximum compensation possible. We are also acutely aware of the emotional stress that accompanies your brain trauma.
Brain injuries are often hidden. In fact, brain injuries are often invisible to those looking at the outer appearance of the victim. This reality is one reason why brain injury cases are so complex and why the assistance of experts is so crucial. Broken bones are easy to prove; brain injuries are not always so evident. Some victims have severe symptoms, such as coma, where the effect is obvious. But many cases involve memory loss, personality changes, and other subtle impairments that are much less apparent but nonetheless assert a devastating impact on the victim's life.
An injury with lifelong consequences
Brain trauma can cause devastating lifelong consequences, and no amount of money can reverse the damage these head injuries cause. However, a full and fair settlement or verdict often provides a person with traumatic brain injury the necessary funds for the long-term rehabilitation and medical care necessary after brain trauma. It also can provide the funds needed to replace loss of income due to inability to work. A sufficient settlement or verdict allows a person with TBI to get the assistance and rehabilitation necessary to live in the community with their family and loved ones; it also provides help to a spouse and children.
