Traumatic Brain Injuries
Massachusetts Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Lawyer
Traumatic brain injury is caused by sudden trauma to the head, which can be a closed head injury or can be the result of an object piercing the skull and entering the cranial vault.
More than 1.4 million people sustain a traumatic brain injury each year in the United States – or more than 3,000 per day.
The leading causes of brain injuries include falls, traffic accidents and assault.
Hiring a Massachusetts brain injury lawyer is a critical first step to protecting your rights.
TBIs can result in a wide-range of medical issues including problems thinking, changes in sensation, speech, balance and/or emotions. According to the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, brain injuries can lead to or increase the chances of serious conditions like Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and other brain disorders associated with advancing age.
No two brain injuries are alike. And the outcome of each brain injury is uncertain and the long-term prognosis and chances of disability are often uncertain. A Massachusetts brain injury lawyer can help protect your rights and fight for the compensation you deserve and help you with the resources you will need to deal with a brain injury.
