Brain Injuries

Life is different after a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Along with the emotional, mental and physical changes that may occur, a mild TBI can result in the loss of a career, a change in future plans and a reconfiguration of familial relationships. A TBI may also result in the need for lifelong medical care and a regimen of daily cognitive exercises.

More severe TBIs, however, can result in catastrophic injury, permanent disability and death. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:

  • Approximately 1.4 million people sustain a traumatic brain injury every year. Of these, about 50,000 die, 235,000 are hospitalized, and 1.1 million are treated and released from an emergency department.
  • About 475,000 TBIs occur among children ages 0 to 14 years and emergency department visits account for more than 90 percent of the TBIs in this age group.
  • At least 5.3 million Americans, approximately two percent of the U.S. population, currently have a long-term or lifelong need for help to perform activities of daily living as a result of a TBI.

The experience of suffering a serious brain injury can be overwhelming, frustrating and confusing. And many people who suffer a TBI focus on the abilities they lost during the rehabilitation process. However, although life after a brain injury may be challenging, it does not have to be any less fulfilling.

Lawyers Who Advocate For The Rights Of TBI Victims

If you or a loved one has suffered a TBI due to the negligence of another, you may have the legal right to recover compensation for your injuries. At Malone Law, we are long time advocates for the rights of TBI survivors. In fact, attorney Tommy Malone recently obtained a verdict in excess of $49 million on behalf of a college student who suffered a TBI as the result of a road wreck involving two inattentive truck drivers on a dangerous roadway in San Jose, California.

Adam Malone is an active member of the Brain Injury Association of America and American Association for Justice Traumatic Brain Injury Litigation Group, and is also a member of the board of governors for the American Association for Justice Traumatic Brain Injury Litigation Group.
