A traumatic brain injury (TBI), caused by a blow or other “trauma” to the head forceful enough to cause a temporary or permanent disruption in brain function, can be mild or acute. Often, the trauma is minor, but the injury quite severe. Symptoms range from a headache or a mild concussion to seizure disorders, coma and death. Falls are the leading cause of traumatic brain injury, followed by motor vehicle crashes, being struck by an object or striking the head against something, and finally, assaults. At Coker Law, we have extensive experience with traumatic brain injuries and truly understand them and their effects.
According to the Family Caregiver Alliance web site:
An estimated 5.3 million Americans are living today with a disability related to a traumatic brain injury.
