A Brain Injured Victim in Bristol, PA May Need Medical and Rehabilitative Care for Years to Come
The leading cause of traumatic brain injuries (TBI) is falls, followed closely in number by motor vehicle accidents, including passenger cars, motorcycles, and bicycles. Less frequent, but just as potentially serious, are injuries caused by medical malpractice and sports participation.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), it’s estimated that 1.7 million people suffer a traumatic brain injury every year. Of those injured, 52,000 die annually.
Brain injuries occur when there is a hard blow to the head causing the fragile, soft tissue of the brain to impact the hard, internal surface of the skull. Often, this type of injury results in a concussion, which bruises the brain. In most concussions, the symptoms are short term. But with a more severe blow or repeated concussions, the damage may be more serious. When the skull is fractured because of a blow or impact on a hard surface, fragments of the skull may penetrate the brain, causing massive damage. Less rare, but potentially far more disastrous, are penetrating skull injuries caused by gun violence.

If your brain has been seriously injured because of someone else’s negligence, recklessness, or intentional harm, you may be entitled to significant monetary compensation as follows:
Medical expenses: Ambulance transport, emergency room treatment, surgical procedures, prescriptions, stabilizing mechanical equipment, adaptive equipment, and more. These are costs that can rise into hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Rehabilitation: Recovery from a serious brain injury usually requires long-term cognitive, physical, and occupational therapies, some lasting a lifetime and which can cost millions of dollars.
Lost income: A serious brain injury could impair or eliminate your ability to work, depriving you of an income, possibly for a lifetime. Even less severe brain injuries can impact your work performance.
Inability to self-care: When your brain has been severely injured, both short- or long-term, you may be unable to perform or have difficulty performing acts of daily living such as bathing, brushing your teeth, taking prescribed medications, and so on.
Household chores: The ability to take care of your home, grocery shopping, and performance of errands and other tasks may be impaired by your brain injury.
Pain and suffering: The physical pain of a brain injury may include severe headaches, migraines, dizziness, lack of balance, vision loss, hearing loss, taste loss, loss of sensation, and other debilitating conditions. Your suffering may also include diminished quality of life.
Loss of family relationships, comfort, and guidance: Your brain injury could affect your family through a loss of relationships and your inability to care for your family and provide guidance as you did before the trauma.
The above-described damages and losses can be considered compensatory in a Pennsylvania civil court proceeding, meaning that you might be able to recover substantial monetary amounts for your brain injury.
