This is National Brain Injury Awareness Month

Your brain is the control center of your entire being and is responsible for allowing you to function on a daily basis. So of course, any damage done to your brain could seriously impact your life in a number of ways.

Every March, we observe National Brain Injury Awareness Month as a way to promote insight to the struggles experienced by over five million of our fellow Americans who are suffering from disabilities associated with traumatic brain injuries.

Unfortunately, the occurrence of TBI is far from rare. In fact, every year at least 2.5 million adults and children suffer traumatic brain injuries. And around 2.2 million of those victims receive emergency room treatment and around 280,000 require hospitalization.

TBI can be caused by a jolt, bump or blow to the head. Also, TBI can result from a penetrating head injury. A key attribute of TBI is that it disrupts the brain's capacity to function normally.

If you or a loved one should suffer a head injury, be on the lookout for such TBI symptoms as dizziness, blurry vision, headache, fatigue or balance problems. But also, be aware that sometimes there is delay of days or even months before symptoms of TBI become apparent.

Car accidents represent one of the prime causes of traumatic brain injuries. And if you or someone in your family has suffered a TBI from being in a motor vehicle collision, then both short and long-term care may be necessary.

As such, you will likely need compensation to cover your costs. An experienced personal injury attorney could assess your needs as well as the cause of your accident and help you find the best way to pursue appropriate compensation.
