Information About Traumatic Brain Injury
The South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control reports that there were a total of 1,068 deaths caused by traumatic brain injury in 2010, in addition to thousands of other cases which resulted in hospitalization. The most prevalent cause of fatal TBI in our state was motor vehicle accidents including car crashes, truck collisions and motorcycle accidents, though slip and fall accidents were also a leading cause.
This is in contrast to national statistics provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which reports that falls account for 35.2% of new cases of TBI every year, followed by traffic crashes (17.3%), being struck by or against an object (16.5%) and assault and battery (10%).
Fighting for Your Right to Compensation
If it can be proven that another party is at fault for causing your traumatic brain injury, you have a right to claim financial compensation for all your medical expenses for emergency treatment, hospitalization and ongoing care, as well as for your lost income and reduced future earning power and even damages for your pain, suffering and mental distress. The effects of a TBI-such as loss of physical coordination, cognitive difficulties and personality changes-may mean that your life will never be the same again.
