Brain Injury Attorneys
Traumatic brain injury has become a quiet but deadly epidemic in the United States. According to the Brain Injury Association of America, 1.5 million people suffer a traumatic brain injury (TBI) every year—or one every 21 seconds. That’s more than 8.5 times the annual number of new breast cancer diagnoses.
Fifty thousand people die each year from traumatic brain injuries and another 80,000 are permanently disabled from a TBI.
Traumatic Brain Injury
Traumatic brain injury is a type of closed head injury caused by an impact to the head strong enough to cause temporary or permanent brain damage or dysfunction. The top causes of traumatic brain injury are falls, motor vehicle accidents, striking the head against an object, and violence.

TBI can cause extensive brain damage. Symptoms can include coma, amnesia, and difficulty speaking, moving, and thinking. A TBI can damage the brain in other, more subtle ways. Family members often report changes in mood, behavior, and memory. The victim may have difficulty controlling his temper or coping with emotional upsets. Sensitivity to light and noise, and the inability to concentrate well enough to read are all symptoms of brain injury.
These subtle symptoms of brain damage are often overlooked or misdiagnosed. Our founder, Attorney Mark Nation, understands how a brain injury affects the brain, the victim, and the entire family. He has been invited to discuss the effects of brain injury to a psychology class at the University of Central Florida for several years.
Hypoxic and Anoxic Brain Injury
The brain can also be damaged by a partial (hypoxia) or total (anoxia) lack of oxygen. These brain injuries can be caused by near drowning, choking, electrical shock, crush injuries, and extreme loss of blood.
