Houston Traumatic Brain Injury Claims Lawyer
The Brain Injury Association of America reports that more than 1.4 million people sustain a traumatic brain injury ("TBI") in the United States every year. Tragically, 50,000 people die and another 235,000 are hospitalized.
TBI is best defined as a brain injury resulting from a closed head injury or open surgical procedure which results in a disruption of brain functions. The brain damage may range from a brief change in cognitive abilities to an extended period of amnesia after a medical procedure or a high fever. A traumatic brain injury can result in short- or long-term neurological and psychological problems that affect a persons ability to function at a normal level.
