Accident Related Head Injuries Leading Cause of Youth Fatalities
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is the leading cause of death for persons under age 45 in America. According to the National Center for Disease Prevention and Control, a TBI incident occurs every 16 seconds and around 1.4 million Americans sustain TBI every year. The leading causes of TBI are motor vehicle accidents, falls, and sports injuries.
Accident injuries to the head can be a tricky thing to diagnose and symptoms can be mild, leading injury victims to undermine the seriousness of the situation. Even in head injuries that lead to concussions, the brain injury is not visible even in MRI scans. Brain cells could be injured or severed from the physical shock and symptoms could range from as mild as personality changes, emotional upset, memory problems, sleep issues and dizziness. Many of these symptoms are often neglected and not connected to the brain injury, which can deteriorate and worsen as time passes.
According to Attorney David Vtipil, of Younce & Vtipil Personal Injury Law Firm in Raleigh, NC, and http://www.AttorneysNC.com, a site dedicated to fighting for the rights of those injured in accidents in North Carolina, “Brain injury can be difficult to diagnose at first. It is important to allow enough time to complete all medical procedures get a clear understanding of the extent of the injury. Employers and insurance companies often attempt to close these cases early in order to avoid the liability of large medical bills. We understand how difficult medical bills can be for our clients and fight hard to help them through each phase of the process, from diagnosis to settlement”.
When choosing your personal injury attorney, it helps to pick a law firm that has significant experience in this area and also understands the medical nuances of such a case. Do not hesitate to question your lawyer about their knowledge in the field of medicine related to personal injury and their history of past cases related to head injuries. There are literally hundreds of laws that can govern the adjudication of such cases and new research results that need to be kept track of to understand newer cures and reasoning/seriousness of personal injury cases. http://AttorneysNC.com may be a good place to start your search.
