According to the CDC, traumatic brain injury (TBI) is characterized by its upfront impact on the way that the brain works. It can lead to both short-term and long-term health complications, including disability and death. In 2019, an estimated 61,000 deaths were attributed to TBI, which translates to about 166 deaths per day. Brain injuries can be caused by accidents like falls, motor vehicle crashes, or firearm-related incidents. Some brain injuries are also due to medical mistakes.

Perhaps you’ve suffered a brain injury as a result of an accident, negligence, or medical malpractice and find yourself dealing with symptoms like memory loss, paralysis, or depression. Perhaps you’ve lost a loved one to a brain injury that you suspect was related to an accident, medical malpractice, or negligence.
