Salisbury Brain Injury Lawyers

Call Hearne & Bailey, P.A. for Help Today!

Your brain is an extraordinarily complex organ that even today we still understand very little about. While countless hours of study have been dedicated to our brains, we know very little about how exactly they work, and why damage to them can be so detrimental to our day to day lives. Traumatic brain injuries are when the brain sustains damage from an outside force, usually a result of an impact to the head or a sudden sharp movement of the head like what you’d experience in a car accident. Brain injuries can also be purely internal, such as strokes, tumors, cancers, or brain infections.

If you or a loved one have suffered a traumatic brain injury through no fault of your own, Hearne & Bailey, P.A. is here to help. We can help you fight for compensation when someone else’s actions are to blame for the serious injury you have sustained. We know how serious these cases can be, and we fight to help you pursue your legal options to their fullest. We offer experienced counsel, a long history of satisfied clients, and a record of substantial case success that goes back for decades.

Brain Injuries, By the Numbers

Brain injuries are a major health problem in the United States. Each year, about 1.7 million people sustain a traumatic brain injury in one way or another. Many of these come from car accidents, while some might come from a fall injury, sports accident, or even workplace incident. Of these 1.7 million injuries, 275,000 people are hospitalized, and 52,000 people die from complications relating to that brain injury.

Here are some additional numbers about the problem of brain injuries:

  • Traumatic brain injuries contribute to one-third of all injury-related deaths in the U.S.
  • 75% of traumatic brain injuries per year are classified as concussions or other mild forms of traumatic brain injury.
  • Those most likely to sustain a traumatic brain injury are children age 4 or younger, young adults age 15 to 19, and adults age 65 or older.
  • Adults age 75 or older have the highest rate of traumatic brain injury-related hospitalization and death.
  • Traumatic brain injuries are generally higher for males than for females.
  • Falls are the most common cause of traumatic brain injuries, and cause the most brain injury-related emergency room visits.
  • Traffic accidents are the leading cause of death related to traumatic brain injury and are highest among adults age 20 to 24.

Signs You Have a Traumatic Brain Injury

Depending on the severity of a brain injury, symptoms may be physical, mental, or both.

These symptoms can make going on with your day to day life difficult or even impossible. At Hearne & Bailey, P.A., we understand this and we make it our priority to help you fight to hold those responsible for your injury accountable.
