Democrat Joe Biden has an edge over Republican leader Donald Trump as he registers a win in major US states. The 2020 US Presidential election results made available by the Associated Press has hinted that Joe Biden has received more votes in his favor. His win in Michigan and Wisconsin has brought him close to forming a majority.

As expected, this is turning out to be a strong battle between both the US presidential candidates namely, Joe Biden and Donald Trump. After seeing the excessive vote count in Joe Biden’s favor, Donald Trump has responded with fury. He has even launched a legal onslaught over battleground-state votes.

According to Trump, his campaign is devoid of meaningful access to counting locations for observing the process for opening and tabulating ballots as stated under the state law. In its response, Joe Biden’s team has prepared itself to take the necessary steps to face Trump’s legal onslaught effectively.

When the vote-counting began, it seemed to a tough battle between Trump and Biden as the two had a little difference in the vote count. But as the time progressed, Joe Biden started to gain momentum in key US states and it has cleared the path for his win in the 2020 US Presidential election.

After Biden’s wins in the Great Lakes states, he reached 264 whereas Trump is at 214. Biden is just one battleground state away to cross the mark of 270 votes to become the US president this year. Joe Biden has received over 71 million votes and this year over 100 million Americans have cast their ballots before the Election day to ensure their safety from the Covid-19 pandemic.

Traumatic Brain Injuries A Common Occurrence In The US. Here Is Why

mm

Published

on

Data from the Brain Injury Association of America shows that over 3.5 million cases of traumatic brain injury (“TBI”) are reported in America each year. 

TBI injuries to the brain often result from a blow to the head with a blunt object or a sudden and back and forth jerking of the head. A TBI can also result from a penetration injury, such as a gunshot shot to the head.

Why TBIs Are Common

There are many ways through which a person could sustain traumatic brain injuries, which is the reason behind their prevalence. The leading cause of TBIs are falls, which account for approximately 40 percent of TBIs. Other common causes include motor vehicle accidents, contact sports, assaults, and firearm injuries.

TBIs can affect persons of any age. However, studies show that children under five, individuals ages 15 to 24, and older adults above 75 have a greater prevalence of developing traumatic brain injuries. 

Service members, homeless people, and persons in correctional facilities also have a high chance of suffering a TBI because of their environments. 

Classification of TBIs

TBIs fall into three main categories; 

  • Mild TBI, also referred to as concussions 
  • Moderate TBI
  • Severe TBI 

Concussions are the most common and easiest to treat. They usually result from a violent rocking of the head after a fall or in contact sports. Though mild, it is essential to see a doctor after a concussion. Even with proper treatment, healing can take a few weeks to months.

Moderate and severe TBIs are the more severe brain injuries. While it is possible to suffer a moderate to severe TBI from a simple fall, the most common causes are falls from heights, a severe blow to the head through an accident or an assault, and penetrative head injuries, such as a gunshot.

Unlike concussions, whose symptoms can heal in a few weeks, moderate to severe TBI patients may have to live with their injuries for much longer and sometimes even for life.

Treatment for TBIs

Treatments for TBIs differ depending on the severity of the injury. The first stage in treatment is the diagnosis stage. While moderate and severe TBI may manifest immediately after an accident, concussions may not and can take as many as 48 hours before showing up. 

Therefore, it is essential to see a doctor if you have had an accident, even when you may not feel injured. Seeking medical attention will help rule out the possibility of injuries that may take longer to show, like a concussion.

Fortunately, most treatments for traumatic brain injuries do not require surgery. Also, treatment procedures have improved over the years, which means you can almost be sure that doctors will only recommend a procedure when it is vital.

The Cost of Treatment

The cost of treating TBIs can vary widely based on the severity of injuries and the procedures used to treat the injuries. “Brain injuries often require a life care plan that establishes all future needs and the cost for this care. Recovering enough money for our clients to be fully compensated for their pain and suffering, past and future economic losses and the millions that are often required to pay for future care needs related to their TBI is always our goal.” says injury attorney Jon Ostroff of  Ostroff Injury Law.

The cost goes beyond the cost of treatment. It also includes lost wages, physical pain, and complete alteration of a person’s quality of life for severe injuries, which must be factored in when seeking compensation for damages resulting from another person’s negligence.
