Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) affects an alarming number of individuals in the United States every year. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) TBI is defined as a trauma or injury to the head that interrupts normal functioning of the brain. High numbers of permanent disabilities, even death, can be attributed to TBI, approximately 1.7 billion cases a year.
Many cases of TBI are diagnosed as mild, but the cost of these injuries is still astronomical, with annual related expenses exceeding 76 billion dollars. In California, alone, almost 30,000 of TBIs are severe enough to require hospitalization. The average California brain injury victim is unprepared to negotiate the complexities surrounding TBI, such as aftercare and legalities.
For this reason, anyone who has suffered a TBI as the result of another’s negligent actions should consult an experienced brain injury lawyer. The law surrounding TBI's is difficult to understand if one does not have an extensive knowledge of the law. The May Firm is highly experienced in handling brain injury cases.

According to the Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS), TBI can be rated as mild to severe on a scale of three to fifteen, with a three being the most debilitating rating. TBI can affect cognitive, motor, emotional, and sensory capabilities. Brain injuries can also result in a severe degree of paralysis, seizures, problems with anxiety, other debilitating conditions, and even death.
To minimize the effects of severe TBI, immediate and aggressive treatment is necessary. Unfortunately, such treatment is time consuming and expensive. It is not uncommon to end with medical bills costing up to hundreds of thousands of dollars. Victims of this far-reaching trauma are unprepared to deal with the repercussions. Families of victims are also greatly affected by the debilitating effects of TBI.
