Brain Injury Awareness Month is here

March is brain injury awareness month. This means that it is time to recognize some of the struggles that many people in Michigan face after being in a car accident, taking a fall or suffering a blow to the head.

About 1.7 million Americans suffer brain injuries each year, according to the Brain Injury Association of America. In fact, brain injuries are one of the main causes of death in the U.S. When people do survive brain injuries, there are often permanent symptoms.

According to the Brain Injury Association of America, the leading cause of brain injury is falls. The second most common is motor vehicle accidents. Because brains do not heal very well, and because the medical community does not fully understand brain injuries, the effects of head trauma can be long-lasting or even permanent.

Those who sustain brain injuries often require expensive medical care and rehabilitative care in order to obtain the best possible quality of life. When a brain injury is caused by someone else's negligence--such as a drunk driver, for example--it is possible to seek compensation for these expenses with a personal injury claim.

In order to prevent brain injuries in the first place, it is important to wear seatbelts and helmets when necessitated. Additionally, after sustaining any head blow it is generally wise to seek medical attention.

When someone in Michigan does sustain a brain injury, it may be wise to seek legal counsel to learn whether compensation may be available for one's medical costs and other damages.
