March is Brain Injury Awareness Month
The Neurologic Rehabilitation Institute at Brookhaven Hospital joins the Brain Injury Association of America in announcing March as Brain Injury Awareness Month with Brain Injury Awareness Day on March 22nd.
Over 12 million individuals are living with brain injury. All kinds of accidents can cause this type of injury, that is why it’s important to get help from a car accident lawyer or an auto accident attorney to help receive proper compensation. In vehicle accidents, receiving car accident injury treatment as quickly as possible will increase the chances of a full recovery. Unfortunately with head and specifically brain injuries, lasting effects can present themselves. This can cause a lifetime of disability which affects the person as well as their loved ones, who often intervene as full time caregivers. Awareness of the need for identification and treatment of brain injury is critical in reducing the impact of the disability to allow the individual to return to life.
The Neurologic Rehabilitation Institute (NRI) at Brookhaven Hospital, is an internationally recognized center for the treatment and rehabilitation of individuals with traumatic brain injuries and other neurological disorders.
