FIGHTING FOR JUSTICE IN SOUTHEAST MINNESOTA
WHAT IS MILD TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY?
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) reports that as many as 75% of all brain-injured people sustain are MTBIs.
• MTBIs cost the nation nearly $17 billion each year.
• An unknown proportion of those who are not hospitalized may experience long-term problems.
Many brain injuries occur from car accidents, including relatively "minor" accidents. The most common result is that you have lower concentration, trouble reading, mental slowness, often sleep disruption. Often vision is "not right," with sudden loss of reading speed, comprehension or comfort; depth perception may be dramatically worsened. Getting poor sleep because of sore muscles from whiplash injuries makes the effects of any mild brain injury much worse. The hard part is that you look normal to friends, family and your doctor. If you keep complaining, people will often think you're depressed or just a complainer. Not so.
We know that football players with helmet protection suffer brain injury so imagine what can happen to an unprotected head in a car collision with speed and weight many times greater than the speed and weight of two people crashing together with head protection.
The effects of a traumatic brain injury can be long lasting. The effects on the family are not only economically harsh they are emotionally harsh. Our law firm has helped people with traumatic brain injuries as evidenced by our testimonials. We will help you get full justice.
