The leading cause of Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) in Columbia and Jefferson City, as well as the rest of Boone County, is car crashes. Every 15 seconds someone receives a TBI in the United States. Approximately 5 million Americans are currently suffering with some form of TBI disability, from mild to severe.
Columbia and Jefferson City brain injury lawyers remind all the citizens of Boone County to buckle up, as seat belt use has been proven time and time again to save lives and minimize injury in an auto accident or truck accident.
Each year, 200,000-300,000 brain injury victims require extensive, prolonged medical treatment and hospitalization. Once returning home from the hospital, brain injury patients and their families find their lives altered in painful and restrictive ways. If you or a loved one is suffering with TBI, don't go it alone. Columbia personal injury attorneys want you to know there is community support available that can make all the difference in coping with this trauma.
