For the most part, the importance of protecting one’s head just goes without saying. After all, one of the most essential organs in the body is the brain. It controls the electrical signals that keep the rest of the body working, and without it the other organs wouldn’t know how and when to do their jobs. Therefore, it only makes sense that we do all we can to keep our heads safe. In fact, over the years there have been laws established requiring that we protect our heads in many instances, such as while riding motorcycles or while on construction sites. Yet, there are still no shortage of head injuries across the country.
DID YOU KNOW: Head injuries are one of the most common causes of disability and death in adults.
What most people do not realize is that there are currently millions of Americans today who live with head injuries and now need help with the activities of daily living. On average, these kinds of injuries cost the U.S. more than $56 billion per year. Needless to say, the cost to the individual can be significant, and in many cases the victim is unable to work or provide for themselves through the recovery process.
Therefore, if you are the victim of an accident that causes an injury to the head as the result of someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation. With lowercase, our mission is to offer the best legal guidance and representation possible for those who need it most.
