Brain Injury Attorney in HyattsvilleEach year in the United States, traumatic brain injury (TBI) contributes to the deaths of more than 50,000 people. In 2013, TBI was a diagnosis in more than 2.2 million emergency room visits and 280,000 hospitalizations. That same year, an estimated 260,000 children (age 19 or younger) were treated in U.S. emergency rooms for sports and recreation-related injuries that included a diagnosis of concussion or TBI.  From 2001 to 2009, the rate of emergency room visits for sports and recreation-related injuries with a diagnosis of concussion or TBI, alone, rose 57% among children (age 19 or younger). With the rising occurrence of TBI comes the increased demand for Hyattsville traumatic brain injury lawyers who can serve their needs.

The most frequent causes of traumatic brain injury are falls, (41%), blunt trauma to the head (16%), traffic accidents (14%), and assaults (11%).  Men, children and the elderly are among the highest risk groups.  Effects of TBI can include impaired thinking or memory, movement, sensation, as well as mood changes or depression.  These symptoms not only affect the immediate quality of life for an injured individual, but can have lasting effects on their caregivers as well.
