March is Brain Injury Awareness Month
According to the Brain Injury Association of America, nearly 12 million people in the United States are living with the impact of a brain injury that was acquired through an accident or illness. Whether the injury is related to a fall, a car accident, a birth injury, playing a sport, or any other activity, brain injuries can have life-altering consequences.
Brain Injuries are a leading cause of death and disability in the United States and affect millions of people and families every year. March is Brain Injury Awareness Month, a time when it is important to reflect on what we can do as a society to reduce the impact of Brain Injuries in the United States.
At Del Rio & Carichoff, Sacramento Personal Injury law firm, we want to help educate people about the realities of Brain Injuries in the U.S. These injuries can be difficult to diagnose and treat, but the best way to prevent long term damage is to act quickly if you believe that a loved one has suffered a Brain Injury.
