Southfield personal injury lawyer Jody Lipton, of the Michigan law firm Lipton Law, is proud to be the Legislative Liaison Co-Chair for the Brain Injury Association of Michigan (BIAMI) Spring Tribute Legacy Society Dinner and Auction being held on March 31st at The Diamond Center at The Suburban Collection Showplace. In addition, Lipton Law is a VIP Reception Sponsor for the fundraising event.

The BIAMI is part of the Brain Injury Association of America (BIAA) network, the country’s largest and oldest nationwide brain injury advocacy, education, and research organization which focuses on bringing hope, healing, and help to the millions of people living with brain injury, their families, and the dedicated professionals who serve them. The Legacy Society Tribute is an important fundraiser for BIAMI. Last year’s Legacy Society’s Spring Tribute Dinner raised over $170,000 in net income for BIAMI and hopefully this year’s will be just as successful, if not more so.

This year’s black-tie optional event will have a Special Guest Presentation by Captain Mark Kelly, husband of U.S. Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, who was the victim of an assassination attempt in January 2011. The honorees at the 2012 Dinner are Phillip W. Weaver, CEO of the Hope Network, who is receiving the Community Service & Leadership Award, and Joel R. Saper, MD, FACP, FAAN, founder and director of the Michigan Head Pain & Neurological Institute, who is receiving the Professional Service Award. The online auction accompanying the event will be open for bidding through April 11th.

A brain injury can create undue emotional, physical, and financial hardships for the victim and their family. At Lipton Law, our experienced Michigan personal injury attorneys are committed to obtaining just compensation for victims of negligence.

Concussions Often Accompanied By Other Serious Injuries, Study Finds

By Lipton Law on February 10, 2012 - No comments

A recent study from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) found that, while sports-related concussions are far more frequent among teenagers than adults, people who suffer concussions or other traumatic brain injuries at all age levels are more likely to need in-hospital care if they also suffered other types of injuries at the same time. Especially common were severe traumatic brain injuries combined with wounds or broken bones in the head, neck, or upper body.

Bruises and open wounds were the most common injuries that came along with traumatic brain injuries in the AHRQ study. Nearly 25 percent of patients with a concussion or other traumatic brain injury also had severe bruising, and over 18 percent had an open wound on the face, neck, or upper body, often a cut or scrape resulting from a fall or blow to the head. Sprains and strains also accompanied 13 percent of those who were seen in hospital emergency rooms for traumatic brain injuries.

Not all accidents are limited to just one injury; many cause multiple injuries, resulting in longer healing times and an increased risk of complications from infections, medications, or rehabilitation.
