A scathing article published by NC Health News reveals a devastating reality: North Carolinians die of traumatic brain injury (TBI) at a higher rate than the national average. The TBI death rate in the Tar Heel state is 19 out of 100,000, more than the national average of 17 out of 100,000. But a TBI doesn’t have to be fatal for the victim to feel its devastating effects. Even a relatively “minor” brain injury can have a profound impact on a victim’s life, and can even change the way they feel and express themselves. It’s important to seek legal help if you or a loved one suffered a brain injury in a crash. Navigating insurance claims and the civil justice system is difficult for anyone, especially for someone suffering from a TBI, so let a Charlotte personal injury attorney from Johnson & Groninger work toward getting you maximum compensation.
