Columbus Georgia Brain Injury Lawyers
Brain injuries happen much more frequently than you might expect. According to the Brain Injury Association of America, more than 1.4 million people* sustain a traumatic brain injury every year. An equally startling statistic is the fact that of the 1.4 million that sustain a brain injury, 50,000 of those die.
A traumatic brain injury is defined as a blow or jolt to the head or a penetrating head injury that disrupts the function of the brain. Not all blows or jolts to the head result in injury. The severity of brain injuries varies from mild to severe. Severe brain injury can result in unconsciousness or amnesia.
Effects of brain injury may include the following:
- Ringing in the ears
