Severe Injury From Car Crash, Assault or Other Negligence
Every 21 seconds, someone in the United States suffers a head injury. That is a staggering 1.5 million people per year, and the statistics are rising each day. A head injury may sometimes not manifest immediately, some cases have even been known to take a few days to manifest fatal or life threatening effects. What characterizes a head injury is blunt or sharp force incident on the head. The most sensitive organ in the body is the brain, with the largest complexity of structure than any other part of the body, needless to say that it should bear the most care, especially since all bodily processes and functions are controlled and regulated from the head. The effects could be anywhere from a total incapacitation to perform independently, to minor loss of functionality like sensation from a minor head injury , partial or complete loss of motor functions to eventual death from physiological damage sustained from a closed head injury or a traumatic head injury (t.h.i.).
