According to the National Institutes of Health, someone in the United States suffers a traumatic brain injury (TBI) every 15 seconds. Their research indicates that TBIs are one of the leading causes of death for people under the age of 45 and that around five million Americans suffer from a brain injury of some kind. Most disturbing of all, more than six of every ten traumatic brain injuries are caused by auto accidents. Since Florida consistently ranks third in the nation for total number of auto accidents and people injured and killed by them, our state has a much higher average of TBI victims than most other states do. Brain injury victims need a strong advocate to protect their rights and work hard to help them get the care they need. That’s why so many choose experienced Orlando auto accident attorney James O. Cunningham to help them with their case.

Devastating Injuries That Change the Course of Lives Forever
A traumatic brain injury affects more than the victim. It also affects the victim’s family and friends who must often support the victim physically, emotionally and financially for the rest of his or her life. TBIs are especially problematic because even when the injuries aren’t fatal, they still often claim the life of the victim. Survivors are left with this new life where they have to learn how to speak, walk and care for themselves all over again. The victim’s family members are left with someone they used to know and love but must grapple with the awful reality that even though their loved one’s body still lives, their loved one is gone forever. They must deal with the anguish of seeing their family member contend with the following:
- Chronic depression
- Unpredictable emotional outbursts
- Severely impaired thinking and memory
- Migraine headaches
- Difficulty concentrating
- Many other TBI symptoms that severely impair their quality of life
