Philadelphia, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/23/2014 -- Saltz Mongeluzzi Barrett & Bendesky, Philadelphia medical malpractice lawyers, are pleased to announce they are now accepting free consultations for brain injury victims this fall. As Americans become more aware of brain injuries, there is a common tendency to link them to athletes, as individuals who participate in sports like Football, Hockey, Skiing and others are more at risk to suffer from a brain injury. However, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, athletes aren’t the only people who are at high risk of suffering from brain injuries.
Recent statistics released by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention show that 1.7 million American citizens suffer from a brain injury each year. 5.3 million American citizens suffer from prolonged symptoms associated with traumatic brain injuries. The statistics also show the events in which individuals suffer from brain trauma. 35% of all brain injuries result from a fall, 17% result from automobile accidents and 10% result from assaults.
Attorneys at SMBB believe it is important for the public to continue to educate itself on the symptoms and treatments for brain injuries, since they can happen at any given moment. Most people do not even realize they’ve suffered from a brain injury when it occurs because they fail to take precautions. Symptoms of brain injury include dizziness, disorientation, memory loss and difficulty in concentration.
