March is National Brain Injury Awareness Month. This effort from the Brain Injury Association of America (BIAA) is intended to provide advocacy and support for those living with brain injury, along with research into treatments that may allow those with “irreversible” damage to regain abilities. The theme for 2021-2023 is More Than My Brain Injury. Its focus is on allowing people with brain injury to redefine their lives and tell their stories in their own words. You can learn more about the campaign and the #MoreThanMyBrainInjury tag by visiting the BIAA’s website.
What Caused Your Injury?
Brain injury is possible any time the head comes into contact with an unforgiving surface. It can also occur when force causes head movements that allow the brain to move inside of the skull. In both instances, brain injury can be fatal.
The most common cause of brain injury is slip and fall accidents with motor vehicle accidents following closely behind. And while firearm-related suicide is the leading cause of brain injury-related deaths, around 34% of all traumatic deaths involve brain injury.
When your injury is the result of someone else’s behavior – intentional or not – you have the right to hold that person, organization, corporation, or government entity accountable, and to seek compensation well beyond the offers of insurance. Before you accept an insurance offer, schedule a free consultation with Attorney Thornbury to learn what your case may really be worth.
