According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there are about 2.5 million traumatic brain injuries suffered in the U.S. every year. Most of those injuries result in at least emergency room visits. Some 280,000 result in the patient being admitted to the hospital and about 50,000 people die of their injuries every year.
That's a lot of pain and difficulty, not only for those who suffer TBI, but also for those who may have to provide care for the patients over the long haul. Making sure that a California head trauma sufferer obtains all the medical care required to achieve the fullest possible recovery can be a challenge without an attorney's help, especially if it involves pursuing a claim for compensation from some negligent party.
