Brain Injury Lawyer

No matter the cause, brain injuries can have life-altering impacts on both the victim and their family. Aside from the physical and emotional trauma that a brain injury may cause, these complex injuries also result in high medical and rehabilitation bills. 

Roughly 288,000 people are hospitalized each year with a brain injury and deaths from head injuries make up 34% of all traumatic deaths. Non-fatal injuries can be devastating. Some people spend months in rehabilitative care and not all will fully recover. Every year approximately 80,000-90,000 people begin experiencing lifelong disabilities because of their brain injury.

If you or a loved one have suffered a brain injury due to another person’s negligence or reckless behavior, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. Turn to the expert brain injury attorneys at The Law Offices of Gillis, Mermell & Pacheco, P.A. to help you get the compensation you deserve.

Most Common Causes of Brain Injuries 

The most common causes of non-fatal brain injuries are:

  • Falls (37%)
  • Motor vehicle accidents (17%)
  • Blows to the head from or against an object, such as sports injuries (17%) 

The most common cause of fatal brain injuries are motor vehicle accidents. This is followed by suicide and falls. About 50,000 people die yearly in the US from traumatic brain injuries.

Compensation Available to Brain Injury Victims

The effects of injuries do not stop at the accident. The road to recovery is often long and expensive, and many people never fully recover. 

Unfortunately, many brain injuries occur as a result of another person’s reckless or negligent actions. For example, if you were injured in a motor vehicle crash that was someone else’s fault or if you were injured by falling at work where the company did not put proper safety protocols in place. 

If this is your situation, you are entitled to compensation for expenses like medical bills, rehabilitative care expenses, loss of income, and pain and suffering. The cost of care for this type of injury can be monumental, and you should not have to shoulder the burden by yourself — especially if you were not at fault.
