Brain Injuries

Suffering a brain injury is cause for fear and stress in your life. The brain acts at the control system for your entire body, and any lack of function or control can have serious repercussions on your physical and mental health.

At The Stroud Law Firm, we understand what you are going through and what to help. With experience and compassion, our experienced personal injury lawyers will fight for the justice you deserve.

According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, an estimated 1.7 million people in the United States sustain a traumatic brain injury each year. Of those injured, 52,000 die and 275,000 are hospitalized. Traumatic brain injuries represent approximately a third of all injury-related deaths in the United States.

It is interesting to know that slip and falls or trip and falls are the leading cause of traumatic brain injury, with motor-vehicle accidents being the leading cause of traumatic brain injury death.

Brain injuries can range in severity from very mild (almost unnoticeable by the person experiencing a lapse in mental functioning) to very severe (the person experiences an extended period of unconsciousness or amnesia following the injury). These injuries can result in short term or long term (permanent) loss of brain and motor-skill function.

If you or a loved one have suffered a brain injury as a result of the negligence or intentional conduct of another, it is essential that you seek out an attorney with experience assisting individuals with debilitating injury claims.

The Stroud Law Firm takes these cases very seriously and will work with you to insure that you are fairly compensated for your injury. Contact us today to begin the path to healing.
