Texas Brain Injury Attorneys
Houston & Dallas Lawyers for Brain Injuries
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can develop due to a bump, blow, or jolt to the head. It may also occur following a penetrating head injury, disrupting functions of the brain. The severity of a TBI can range from mild to severe.
Each year, TBI’s are responsible for a substantial number of deaths and cases of permanent disability. According to a report by the Center for Disease Control, estimates indicate that between 3.2 million and 5.3 million persons in the U.S. are living with a TBI disability. Additionally, adolescents and adults who are affected by moderate / severe TBI and discharged from rehabilitation facilities were more than twice as likely to die 3.5 years after their injury. Published, peer-reviewed literature indicates that 2 in 10 adolescents and adults who are treated for TBI and receive rehabilitation therapy will die within 5 years post-injury and nearly 4 in 10 will have declined in function from the level of recovery attained 1 to 2 years after their injury.
