Research shows that people over the age of 75 are more inclined to have an accident resulting in a TBI. Fortunately, the CDC has launched a campaign that provides materials for older adults and their caregivers. These materials provide information to help prevent, recognize and respond to a TBI.
Many accidents leading to a TBI are the result of negligence by another party. A TBI can lead to a lengthy hospital stay and create a financial hardship for not only the victim, but for the victim’s family. When a senior citizen is injured due to someone else’s negligence, the responsible party may be held liable.
