Accidents > Traumatic Brain Injury

Brain injuries occur in approximately 12,000 to 15,000 people per year in the U.S. About 10,000 of these people are permanently paralyzed, and many of the rest die as a result of their injuries. Males between 15 and 35 years old are most commonly affected.

As a Brain Injury is very serious it is very important to examine your medical treatment options. The Treatment Options section describes the different types of treatments such as medication, rehabilitation, and clinical trial information. In our Financial Assistance section, we discuss how patients and their families may be helped with medical bills and financial concerns.

Other complications caused by brain injuries include becoming paraplegic. Paraplegia is a condition in which the lower part of a patient's body is paralyzed and cannot move. It is usually the result of spinal cord injury or a congenital condition such as spina bifida, but polyneuropathy may also result in paraplegia. If the arms are also paralyzed, quadriplegia is a more appropriate diagnosis.

Quadraplegic or Quadriplegia (also known as tetraplegia) is a symptom in which a human experiences partial or complete paralysis from the neck down. It is caused by damage to the brain or to the spinal cord at a high level (e.g. spinal cord injuries secondary to an injury to the cervical spine). The injury causes the victim to lose total or partial use of the arms and legs. The condition is also termed tetraplegia; both terms mean "paralysis of four limbs", however tetraplegia is becoming the more accepted term for this condition.

There are a handful of possible sources of financial assistance and/or compensation for people with brain injuries. Sources of financial assistance often depend on how the injury occurred. At work, an SUV rollover, caused by a third party, etc.

Car accident / SUV Rollovers

Compensation may be recovered for individuals involved in a SUV rollover accident or in certain car accident cases. Financial security for the patient and the family is often made possible by these efforts which can be in the millions of dollars. Call 1 800-923-6376 or fill out the form below to receive additional information on how you might recover financial assistance.

Disability Insurance

Disability claims may be filed if one has such insurance either privately or through an employer.

Social Security Disability

Disability claims can be filed with the federal social security system.

Worker's Compensation

If the injury can be linked to a particular job-site can a worker's compensation claim be filed against an employer. It is also possible that a worker's compensation claim will conflict with the pursuit of other legal remedies, so it is advisable to consult with an attorney before pursuing this or any other avenue of monetary recovery.
