Every year thousands in Idaho suffer from a head and brain injury (commonly referred to as Traumatic Brain Injuries or TBIs). The signs and symptoms of traumatic brain injury vary greatly from case to case and obvious symptoms may not be immediately apparent after an accident. After head trauma, new TBI symptoms may emerge even months later. That is why it is important to seek medical evaluation any time there is a blow to the head or other potential cause of brain injury.
If you or a family member have suffered head trauma of any kind, after seeking medical attention, call Litster Frost Injury Lawyers. We have helped many brain injury victims throughout Idaho win compensation for the many serious consequences that can come from traumatic brain injury. Your path to recovery will be much smoother with the right support
Traumatic Brain Injury in Idaho
The Brain Injury Alliance of Idaho reports that 16,800-35,000 individuals in Idaho are living with traumatic brain injury. A study in The Online Journal of Rural Research and Policy named Idaho 7th out of the 50 states in highest number of per capita hospitalizations involving TBI and connected this fact to the rural nature of the state. It mentions, “As a rural state, Idahoans are at higher risk for TBI compared to other populations; rural people are particularly vulnerable to chronic illnesses and diseases, and are at increased risk for injury-associated disability due to limited healthcare access and availability.”
Some have connected the high propensity for outdoor, adventure and risk oriented sports in the state to the relatively high percentage of brain injuries.

Brain injury cases can be difficult. But our attorneys have the experience needed to understand the nuance of how insurance companies operate in these cases.

They may even attempt to dig up medical records from your elementary school days in an attempt to do so.
