BRAIN INJURY ATTORNEYS IN HENDERSON, NEVADA
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is an important public health issue. Traumatic brain injury is a contributing factor to a third of all injury-related deaths in the United States. Each year, an estimated 1.7 million people sustain a brain injury. About 75% of these brain injuries are in the form of concussions or other forms of mild TBI.
Children from newborn to 4 years old, adolescents aged 15 to 19 and adults aged 65 and older are more likely to sustain traumatic brain injury. In every age group, TBI is higher for males than females.
The potential effects of traumatic brain injury include the following:
Thinking (memory and reasoning)
Sensation (touch, taste and smell)
Language (communication, expression and understanding)
Emotion (depression, anxiety, personality changes, aggression, acting out and social inappropriateness)
TBI can also increase the risks of epilepsy, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease and other brain disorders that become more prevalent with age.
HOW ARE BRAIN INJURIES CAUSED?
People suffer traumatic brain injuries in a broad range of accidents:
Car Accidents. In a collision, a driver may suffer a traumatic brain injury if his head strikes the front windshield in a rear-end crash, or her head strikes the side window in a side-impact crash.
Sporting Events. If a rider is thrown off a horse and lands on their head, they may suffer a traumatic brain injury as well as a spinal cord injury. Full-contact sports such as boxing, mixed martial arts, soccer, football, basketball, and hockey have been well documented for causing severe long-term effects for those suffering brain injuries.
Work Accidents. People at a construction site are at risk of a traumatic head injury if they fall from scaffold or roof, or are struck by a swinging or falling heavy object.
Assaults. While those who climb into the octagon or boxing ring assume the risk of a head injury, head injuries caused by assaults outside those arenas can be worse. An assault as simple as a shove from a casino security guard can lead to severe head trauma or death if your head strikes the ground.
