West Palm Beach Brain Injury Attorney
Data from the CDC indicates that 1.4 million traumatic brain injuries occur every year in the United States.
According to the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, roughly 235,000 people require hospitalization for traumatic brain injury (TBI) every year. Of this number, approximately 55,000 people die because of the injuries sustained to their brain.
The causes of traumatic brain injury include a severe jolt or blow to the head, or an injury that penetrates the head resulting in a disruption of the brain's normal functions. However, TBI does not result from all jolts or blows to the head. A traumatic brain injury may range in severity from a brief change in a person's mental state (or a mild to moderate injury), to a prolonged or permanent state of impairment (or a traumatic injury).
TBI can also occur when there is a disruption in the flow of oxygen to the brain, known as acquired brain injury (ABI). ABIs can result from aneurysm, heart attack, stroke, drug abuse, infectious disease, airway obstruction, and more. Medical malpractice and/or medical negligence are sometimes the cause of ABIs.
Disabilities associated with a TBI can include physical disabilities, impaired cognitive ability, changes in behavior/behavioral problems, and/or emotional damage. The damage TBI victims suffer is often permanent, sometimes preventing the person from ever resuming normal functions.

The aftermath of a brain injury often includes an inability to function properly, including speech impediments, lack of body movements, or mental processes. These difficulties are associated with the damage nerves and neurons undergo during the traumatic brain injury. The unfortunate reality is that victims of TBI who survive the initial injury and who are not permanently disabled may require five (5) to ten (10) years of rehabilitation before regaining normal functionality.
