No one expects a single household chore to end in serious, life-changing injury. However, the lawyers at our firm who work with those who suffer traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) of all kinds understand that many simple actions can have deadly consequences. When it comes to TBIs that often involves falls that occur in and around the house.
For example, SF Gate reported on one man’s struggle to recover after suffering a brain injury. The 71-year old man was working outside of his house last October. He was on a ladder (in his words, a ladder that was “not very good”) when he accidentally fell. He hit his head hard of a rock after the fall. As a result of the fall he ultimately spent three full weeks in a coma. Fortunately, he eventually did wake up, but he was not unscathed. The year since the accident has been a long, drawn-out battle to get back to normal as much as possible
