Traumatic Brain Injury

Posted in Traumatic Brain Injury

Traumatic brain injury is often referred to as an acquired brain injury or head injury. It occurs when there has been damage to the brain caused by some form of sudden trauma to the head. An injury of this type is obviously devastating to the victim and their families. In some cases, the victim may experience a complete recovery. In more unfortunate circumstances, the victim may never return to work or require lifelong assistance or skilled nursing care.
