Every year, 1.5 million people suffer a traumatic brain injury (TBI) in the United States. These injuries range from minor concussions to serious and life-threatening brain injuries. Severe brain injuries can result in a lifetime of disability, pain, and suffering.
Injured individuals may suffer cognitive impairments such as speech and language abnormalities, thinking skills, and loss of motor function. They may be unable to perform their daily care and work in their chosen profession after suffering a serious TBI.
