New York lawyers De Caro & Kaplen, LLP launch TBI statistics portal containing accurate, up to date information on traumatic brain injury in the USA.

Brain injuries must properly be regarded as an epidemic in the US, and attention, education, and resources must be devoted to this devastating condition.”

PLEASANTVILLE, NEW YORK, USA, August 22, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Traumatic brain injury has reached epidemic levels in the United States, and should be treated as an urgent public health crisis, according to New York brain injury attorneys De Caro & Kaplen, LLP.

Shana De Caro and Michael Kaplen, leading advocates for victims of brain injury, created “A Comprehensive Overview of Traumatic Brain Injury Statistical and Epidemiological Information,” as a resource to understanding the public health crisis faced by millions of Americans.

The New York personal injury law firm’s traumatic brain injury statistics web site portal highlights CDC statistics which reveal approximately 5.3 million Americans now live with a TBI-related disability. According to senior partner, Shana De Caro, who serves as secretary of the Brain Injury Association of America, “It’s more than just sport injuries that contribute to these alarming statistics, everyday occurrences such as falls and motor vehicle accidents, are leading causes of brain injury.”

According to Shana, this guide will provide a central reference for any individual looking for current facts on traumatic brain injury. “While there are many brain injury statistics available highlighting the scale of the crisis, they are often buried in larger reports on public health and injury. By compiling them in one place, we have created a single comprehensive resource which is easily digestible. Any concerned parent or interested individual will be able to access relevant facts on traumatic brain injury from one source.”

Michael Kaplen, a partner in the firm and three-term past president of the Brain Injury Association of New York State, commented, “Brain injuries must properly be regarded as an epidemic in the US, and attention, education, and resources must be devoted to this devastating condition.”

Kaplen concluded, “The facts are clear: traumatic brain injury is one of the leading causes of disability in the United States. The real tragedy is that many serious brain injuries could be avoided with better education about risk factors and implementation of appropriate safety measures.”

The brain injury law firm of De Caro & Kaplen, LLP is dedicated to protecting the legal rights of brain injury victims. The firm has represented brain injury survivors for over 35 years for traumatic brain damage caused by motor vehicle collisions, bus and truck crashes, unsafe buildings and construction sites, and medical malpractice. Shana De Caro and Michael V. Kaplen, nationally recognized for their legal skills have each served as chairpersons of the American Association for Justice, Traumatic Brain Injury Litigation Group and have been selected by their peers as Super Lawyers.
