Memphis Brain Injuries

Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are a persistent problem in the United States. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that, on average, over 1.7 million people face a traumatic brain injury each year. There are two distinct types of TBIs, penetrating injuries and closed head injuries. The consequences of a TBI are often severe, ranging from mild changes in behavior and mental well being to chronic changes in consciousness, and even death.

A contributing factor in nearly a third of all injury related deaths, TBIs can cause disabling changes to cognition, sensation, language, and emotion. Brain damage may also contribute to diseases and disorders such as:

  • Epilepsy
  • Mental retardation
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Chronic headaches
  • Second-impact syndrome
  • Post-concussion syndrome
  • Vertigo
  • Strokes
  • Brain hemorrhage
  • Chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE)
  • Alzheimer's disease
  • Parkinson's disease
  • Other brain disorders

The compassionate and dedicated Memphis lawyers at Morgan & Morgan can assist you in navigating the difficult path after a brain injury and will fight to recover maximum compensation for your injuries.

Causes of Head Trauma

There are a number of ways in which individuals can sustain traumatic brain injuries. In Tennessee, the most common causes of TBIs include falls, motor vehicle accidents and medical errors. The causes of TBIs range from the mundane (sports injuries, slip and fall accidents), to the egregious (excessive police force, criminal actions), to the tragic (car and truck accidents, birth malpractice). Of the 1.7 million TBIs each year, about 52,000 people die, 275,000 are hospitalized, and 80,000 to 90,000 experience the onset of long-term disability.

How a Memphis Traumatic Brain Injury Attorney Could Help You

Compensation is important for brain injury patients as they are burdened with the expenses of long-term rehabilitation and care. They may also be unable to work and earn money, which in turn would have a detrimental impact on their finances and personal esteem.

Because brain injuries are quite serious, personal injury attorneys can help victims seek compensation after being hurt because of another's negligence. Compensation can be used for lost wages, loss of earning capacity, medical bills, and pain and suffering.
