Pursuing Compensation after a TBI

Victims can pursue financial compensation by filing a claim against the at-fault party. After a slip-and-fall accident, for example, it must be determined if the accident resulted from a hazardous condition, if the property owner knew of the condition and if the property owner failed to prevent the accident.

In such cases, a premises liability claim can hold the property owner accountable for his or her negligence. Following a car accident, it must be determined if the at-fault driver was negligent at the time of the crash. Was the driver speeding, drunk, fatigued, distracted or otherwise careless? In such cases, the at-fault driver can be held liable for the victim's injuries and losses by filing a personal injury claim.

Brain Injury Rates by Gender and Age

Brain injury rates are higher for men than women in all age groups. Tragically, male children aged 0 to 4 years have the highest rates of TBI-related trips to the hospital. The CDC estimates that 473,947 children aged 0 to 14 years visit the emergency room for a TBI each year. Other age groups that are most commonly injured or killed by brain injuries are adolescents aged 15 to 19 and seniors (65 years or older).

California Brain Injury Statistics

An estimated 350,000 Californians are living with a traumatic brain injury. Over 100,000 victims of TBI visit California emergency rooms each year and 25 percent of those victims never return to work. In the year 2006, 19,415 California residents were hospitalized with a non-fatal TBI. Of those TBI incidents, 43 percent were caused by falls, 22 percent occurred as a result of motor vehicle accidents and 17 percent were caused by assaults or other acts of violence. The peak ages for brain injuries in California are infancy, early 20s and over 80.

Losses Suffered in TBIs

Even relatively minor brain injuries can result in major medical and rehabilitation expenses. Victims often require emergency room treatments, expensive MRI or CAT Scan testing, hospitalization, surgical procedures and lengthy hospitalization. Some victims will also require rehabilitation services, medical devices and prescription medications. Paying for these considerable bills are particularly difficult for TBI victims who may not only have to take time off work, but may never be able to return to work.

The experienced Tustin brain injury lawyers at our law firm have helped victims of catastrophic injuries obtain fair compensation for damages including but not limited to medical expenses, lost earnings, lost future income, rehabilitation, pain and suffering and emotional distress.
