Brain and Spine Injuries
Brain and spine injuries are life-changing and can often have permanent or fatal consequences, affecting not just those who are injured but their families as well. The CDC estimates that in the United States 1.4 million people experience traumatic brain injuries every year, with 235,000 hospitalizations and more than 50,000 deaths. These types of injuries can leave victims with mental and physical disabilities, and they place an emotional and financial burden on the victims and their families.
Brain and spine injuries are often the result of:
- A devastating car, motorcycle, commercial truck, or auto-related pedestrian accident
- Work-related injuries, most commonly in factories, ports and shipyards, and construction sites
- Slip-and-fall accidents involving head injuries, even those that seem minor
About one-half of the people who suffer severe head injuries require extensive surgery to repair or minimize brain damage. Recovery from this type of injury often requires years of various therapies and medical rehabilitation. In some cases, victims are left with disabilities that require medical care for the rest of their lives.
