Brain injury happens in an instant, but no one needs to face it alone.
Brain injury is an insult or injury to the brain, which is not hereditary, degenerative, or congenital. Brain injury often is caused by a physical trauma, such as a car crash, fall, or sports mishap. Other times the brain injury is acquired through medical conditions such as stroke or lack of oxygen.
Brain injury affects not only the individual but also the person’s family, close friends, co-workers, and other social networks. Roles and relationships may change. The financial ramifications may be extensive.
