March is Traumatic Brain Injury Awareness Month
Traumatic brain injuries come in so many forms, but the most common we see are concussions. Recent research on concussions has begun to reveal the depth of their severity and how they can have a long-term and life-changing impact on those who suffer with them. Most often caused by car accidents or sports injuries, there are over 52,000 people who are killed each year as the result of a traumatic brain injury.
There are well over 5 million Americans who are currently living with TBI’s and who feel their impact every day; symptoms ranging from dizziness and nausea to physical impairments and loss of motor functions.
March is Traumatic Brain Injury Awareness Month, and this year’s theme is #NotAloneInBrainInjury. At Wagner Reese, we want to help spread the word about brain injury prevention, and long-term care for those who suffer with brain injuries.
The Brain Injury Association of America has valuable resources for anyone looking to share the news about brain injuries. Take a look at their site for some great flyers, soundbites, and social media shares.
Keep in mind that next Wednesday, the18th is National Brain Injury Awareness Day, so keep an eye out for some resources you can share directly from our site. We’ll offer some prevention tips, as well as things to watch out for to properly diagnose a concussion.
In the meantime, if you have suffered a traumatic brain injury, give the personal injury attorneys at Wagner Reese a call and let us talk you through what the financial recovery process might look like for you. Set up your free consultation at (888) 204-8440.
