March is Brain Injury Awareness Month, an effort from the Brain Injury Association of America to help destigmatize brain injury, raise awareness of its dangers and prevalence, and encourage more research into potential cures. This year’s theme, #MoreThanMyBrainInjury, is intended to inspire those living with a brain injury to speak out and share their experiences, spark creative solutions, mobilize lawmakers and others to take action, and provide resources that enable people to do more to help.
Brown & Brown is proud to recognize this month, and the many difficulties individuals with brain injury face daily. This may include changes in cognitive processing, emotional regulation, and speech/fine motor skills, accompanied by increased risks for stroke, seizures, pneumonia, and premature death. If you are living with a brain injury and uncertain of your rights, we are here to help you understand your options, including legal action, to ensure you have the resources you need to make the best recovery possible.
Is Traumatic Brain Injury Permanent?
Many Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are mild concussions. These will produce some difficulties in the short term, but typically resolve even without medical intervention. Moderate to severe TBIs, on the other hand, are often permanent and will require a lifetime of assistive care, rehabilitative services, medications, and more to adequately address.
The leading cause of TBI is slip and fall accidents, a premises liability issue that may entitle victims to more significant compensation than insurance will offer. Other causes of TBI, including motor vehicle accidents, workplace injury, and even assault, may similarly entitle a victim to seek compensation. The best way to learn if your case qualifies for legal action is through a free consultation with one of the brain injury lawyers at Brown & Brown.
Our experienced attorneys understand the complexities of personal injury law. Equally important, we have the resources necessary to investigate accidents, identify the liable party, and seek proper compensation, which is often substantially more than insurance will offer. We are here to listen to your story, help you understand your options, and guide you toward the best possible outcome.
