Brain Injury Archives

A slip-and-fall accident can cause a traumatic brain injury

It is unfortunate that slip-and-fall accidents occur with great frequency. This type of incident can result in the victim suffering a number of serious injuries, possibly including a traumatic brain injury. Arizona residents who have been hurt in slip-and-fall accidents may be entitled to seek compensation for any resulting losses they have experienced.

Was your traumatic brain injury not properly treated?

Many Arizona residents are struck on the head and seek medical attention thinking that they might only have concussions. However, the brain can be fickle, and a traumatic brain injury can quickly become life-threatening without the proper treatment. If an injury is severe, one could suffer permanent and debilitating brain damage or die.

Even a mild traumatic brain injury can have major consequences

Brain injuries run the gamut in severity, from relatively minor in nature to absolutely devastating. When it comes to a traumatic brain injury, though, even one that is considered less severe can have serious life-changing consequences. Arizona residents who have suffered brain injuries of any level due to the negligence of others may not know how they will be able to get the care they need moving forward or where to turn for help. Thankfully, these individuals may be entitled to seek compensation for their losses through legal means, which could certainly assist them in obtaining the care and treatments they need for recovery and rehabilitation, as well as financial stability.

Compensation may be available following a traumatic brain injury

Arizona residents who have suffered head injuries at the hands of medical providers, in auto collisions or during recreational activities, may be entitled to compensation for their losses. A traumatic brain injury can completely change the course of one's life. If you or a loved one has suffered such an injury, you are not alone. Help is available.

Arizona traumatic brain injury: What are the most common types?

As many Arizona residents may be aware, brain injuries can come in many forms. While a significant blow to the head can cause what is known as a traumatic brain injury, the injury may be later diagnosed as a specific injury type. There are, in fact, several different types of traumatic brain injury, each with its own set of issues.

What is it like to live with a traumatic brain injury?

Those in Arizona and elsewhere who have suffered or are living with someone with a brain injury may find that their lives have dramatically changed. Living with a traumatic brain injury (TBI) is not as easy feat. Every injury is different, as are the problems that it can cause.

Arizona versus United States traumatic brain injury rates

Believe it or not, brain injuries occur on a rather frequent basis. How frequent is that, exactly? Well, on a national level, over 1 million people suffer brain injuries every year. What about Arizona? What are the traumatic brain injury (TBI) rates for the state, and what actions can victims of TBIs take in order to achieve compensation for their losses?

Arizona traumatic brain injury: common causes

Accidents that result in some form of brain injury are far more common than some would like to think. It is actually believed that nearly 140 people nationwide die every day because of this type of injury, even more are left with temporary or permanent disabilities. A traumatic brain injury is something to which no one is immune, whether they live in Arizona or elsewhere.

Full effects of a traumatic brain injury are not immediately seen

There are injuries that are pretty straightforward. For example, a broken bone is easy to diagnose and treat, and a time line can be offered as to when a full recovery can be expected. A traumatic brain injury (TBI), on the other hand, is not that simple. Those residing in Arizona or elsewhere who are the victims of a TBI, or the victim's family members, may not fully see the effects of the damages for some time.

Paralysis and other disabilities common after brain injury

Traumatic brain injuries affect well over a million Americans every year -- many of whom live in Arizona. The effects of such injuries can lead to paralysis, other disabilities -- which can be temporary or permanent -- and even death. As the damages suffered from a brain injury are life-altering or even life-ending, campaigns to educate the public about effective ways to help prevent such injuries are becoming more common.
