Brain damage caused by car accidents can be serious

Traumatic brain injuries affect around 1.7 million people each year in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Of those, 17.3 percent are the result of a motor vehicle or traffic accident. Readers in Washington, District of Columbia, might be interested in learning a little more about traumatic brain injuries.

When it comes to traumatic brain injuries caused by motor vehicle-traffic accidents, victims are more likely to die from these injuries than someone who suffers from a TBI caused by another reason. Because of the severity of the effects of a TBI, fast action after the injury occurs and getting the highest quality of care are vital.

It is estimated that 1,365,000 people visit the emergency room at a hospital each year in America seeking care for a TBI. Of those, 275,000 result in an admission to the hospital.

Not receiving appropriate care after the car accident can lead to a reduction in the quality of the victim's life. It is estimated that 124,626 Americans suffer from a permanent disability following a traumatic brain injury. The medical care, rehabilitative services and the personal care services that are necessary after a traumatic brain injury can put a significant strain on a family and their financial resources.

If the traffic accident that led to the brain damage was caused by someone else's negligence, you might decide to seek compensation to help with the skyrocketing cost of treating the brain injury. Missed work wages, medical bills and other related costs are some of the compensation you might be eligible to receive.
