How many people suffer traumatic brain injuries per year?

Many injuries cause a tremendous amount of suffering, from an incredible amount of discomfort and pain to lifelong problems with reduced mobility. However, those which involve the brain are especially concerning. To make matters worse, it can be difficult to detect brain injuries and some people suffer for years without knowing that hitting their head caused a TBI. In Bozeman, and across all of Montana, it is pivotal for those with head injuries to look into their options, especially if someone's negligence caused the injury.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that roughly 2.8 million were hospitalized, passed away, or visited an emergency room due to a traumatic brain injury over the course of 2013. These injuries occur in many ways, from playground accidents to mishaps on construction sites and slipping on wet surfaces. For the victims of traumatic brain injuries, life may be transformed for the worse in a myriad of ways. Brain injuries can get in the way of one's ability to perform their job duties, enjoy activities, and even maintain relationships with loved ones. Because of the serious nature of these injuries, looking at all avenues to move forward is essential, even legal action, in some cases.

From an incident that happened at work to a traffic accident caused by a drunk driver, those who are responsible for someone else's traumatic brain injury because of their negligence should not get away with the suffering their actions have caused. For victims of these accidents, focusing on recovery should be their first priority.
