Not many injuries impact life as acutely as a brain injury. Injuries to the brain are both frightening and tragic. When someone is a victim of a brain injury, they may lose the ability to operate with their full faculties.

Unfortunately, brain injuries are all too common. Almost two million people per year suffer a brain injury, and close to half a million of those injuries require hospitalization and extensive post- hospital care.  Although our skulls are natural barriers and protectors for the brain, even minor blows to the head can cause unseen brain trauma.

Recovering from a brain injury is a long and painful process. Often, an injured person is forced to relearn simple motor functions, like the ability to speak again. Tasks that were automatic become nightmares as injured people work hard to regain some semblance of a dignified life. Injuries to the brain often result in ballooning medical bills and a lifetime of hardship.  Victims of brain injuries should know that they may be entitled to compensation under South Carolina law. If you or someone you love has suffered a brain injury as a result of someone’s negligent behavior, David R. Price, Jr., P.A. may be able to help.
