According to estimates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, up to 1.4 million people suffer from a brain injury each year.
Let that number sink in.
This means that last year, 1.4 million Americans suffered from a brain injury that may have affected their ability to function in society. These individuals may not be able to work, speak to their loved ones, or remain independent. Those injuries affected more than 1.4 million people. Those injuries affected 1.4 million families.
If you or a loved one suffered from a brain injury, you might be entitled to compensation under the law. Whether your injury was caused by a car crash, an accident at work, or an operation that went wrong, someone may be legally liable for this traumatic event.
Those who are liable may have a team of attorneys and insurance company executives on their side, and they may try to offer you a settlement. The problem with taking a brain injury settlement is that it takes time to understand the complicated medical issues that sometimes arise over time due to that accident.
