The Tennessee Department of Health reports that "every year in Tennessee 7,000 people are admitted to the hospital with a brain injury." The highest rates of brain injury occur to males age 15-24, and the two major causes of brain injuries in Tennessee are motor vehicle accidents and falls. These are alarming statistics, especially since so many of these injuries could have been prevented.
The team at James R. Omer & Associates is all-too aware that many motor vehicle accidents, falls and other situations that lead to head injuries, including traumatic brain injury, occur due to the negligence or carelessness of others. We have helped hundreds of head injury victims and their families recoup financial compensation to with cope with the often life-altering symptoms of this condition.
Because many head injuries are "closed," meaning they are not outwardly visible, some of the problems linked to these injuries are not always correctly diagnosed. Even a mild head injury victim may develop problems with memory, emotions, planning or judgment that over time contributes to a job loss, a broken family or social isolation.
If someone's carelessness caused an accident that left you or a loved one with a head injury, please contact the Nashville, Tennessee personal injury lawyers at James R. Omer & Associates, PLLC today so we can investigate your case and use our experience to help improve your quality of life.
