Portsmouth NH, August 15 – New Hampshire personal injury attorney, Justin Caramagno notes that more than 2 million people in the U.S. suffer from brain injuries every year. About 1.7 million of those injuries are significant enough to cause loss of consciousness while 300,000 people are hospitalized with brain injuries each year. Of those, 100,000 suffer long-term or sustained disabilities as a result of their injuries.
“The single most common cause of brain injury is due to vehicle accidents,” said New Hampshire lawyer Caramagno. “In fact, 50% of all traumatic brain injuries are the result of vehicle accidents,” he explained.
The costs for treating brain injuries are staggeringly high, with the cost of many cases reaching more than $500,000. For those with severe traumatic brain injuries that are non-fatal, lifetime costs often exceed $4 million. Much of this cost is because only 20% of traumatic brain injury survivors ever return to work. Over all, brain injuries cost Americans approximately $50 billion annually.
For all of the above reasons, hiring the right New Hampshire lawyer to represent brain injury victims and their families is critical. It’s imperative that the New Hampshire lawyer has significant legal experience with brain injury cases.
