Minnesota Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Lawyers & Attorneys
Each year in the U.S., over a million people are seen by medical doctors due to a head injury– many of which occur in an automobile collision. Of that number, 50,000 to 100,000 have prolonged brain injury problems that will affect their ability to work and/or otherwise impact their daily lives.
There are three separate processes that work to injure the brain: bruising (bleeding), tearing, and swelling. You do not have to be traveling at a high rate of speed to get a brain injury from a car accident. Nor do you have to hit your head on an object (steering wheel, windshield) to injure the brain. Even at a moderate rate of speed, car accident traumatic brain injuries (TBI) can and do occur.
Victims of traumatic brain injury accidents (TBI) suffer from any number of problems that often affect their daily living:
- Impaired memory.
- Problems with organization.
- Sleep Disorders.
- Emotional changes.
- Word-finding difficulties.
- Getting overloaded.
