Dangers of Brain Injury Highlighted by Death of Duchess Camilla's Brother

The New York brain injury lawyers at Block O'Toole & Murphy, LLP, are following the sad report involving Mark Shand, the 62-year-old brother of the Duchess of York, Camilla Parker Bowles, who died Wednesday from a brain injury suffered when he slipped and fell outside The Rose Bar at the Gramercy Hotel in Manhattan. We extend our thoughts and prayers to Mr. Shand's family, and commend him for the charity work that he tirelessly performed as a conservationist, the very work that brought him to New York City for his ultimately tragic visit.

Brain Injury and Going Back to Work

Brain injuries do not just happen to football players and members of the military serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. Traumatic brain injury is much more widespread than was thought even a few years ago. It also affects victims far longer and more insidiously than was previously believed.

New York Traumatic Brain Injury Statistics

The state of New York provides voluminous statistics on a wide range of health topics. One of these relates to traumatic brain injury (TBI) one of the most common consequences of motor vehicle accidents, falls from heights, slip and falls on dangerous premises, and even mistreatment in hospitals, nursing homes and clinics. What do these numbers tell us about this type of injury in the Empire State?

Even mild brain injury can have long-term effects

Severe brain injuries sometimes incapacitate victims, preventing them from leading normal lives. Indeed, traumatic brain injury can be the most devastating kind of accident a person can suffer. Yet even a mild brain injury, it has been found, can have long lasting effects.

Slip and falls the leading cause of traumatic brain injury

A person slips and falls, landing on his or her back and perhaps hits his or her head. New York City residents would be surprised to know that what looks like a harmless slip-and-fall injury can lead to serious consequences. Although the accident may appear to be trivial, it can result in traumatic brain injury (TBI).
