I was involved in a car accident recently and sustained a severe concussion. The doctor says it’s often called a silent epidemic or injury and I may have trouble suing for compensation because no one can see my injury. Does that affect my lawsuit?

While it is true that traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are called a silent epidemic, if your injury was caused by the negligence of another and it turned your life upside down, you have a strong chance of winning compensation.

TBIs are considered to be silent injuries, much like whiplash, because victims look normal even though they have sustained a serious, life-changing injury. Roughly 100,000 Americans die annually from TBI and a further 500,000 end up permanently disabled. Every 15 seconds someone suffers a brain injury and approximately 5.3 million (more than 2 percent of the nation’s population) are living with disability as a result of a TBI.
