Have you suffered from a traumatic brain injury while serving your country?

What happens when a roadside explosion throws a soldier against the side of his vehicle with such force that it shakes his brain inside his skull?

What an awful picture. Unfortunately, this happens way too much to our soldiers serving our country during this time of war.

Statistics show that traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are the most common wounds suffered in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. They occur when a sudden trauma or head injury disrupts the function of the brain. Common causes of traumatic brain injury in the military include damage caused by explosive devices.

Symptoms can appear immediately or take up to months following the injury. Damage is often widespread and can be difficult to detect.

Recovery from a brain injury varies by the individual and extent of damage. Even though little can be done to reverse the initial damage, immediate treatment is necessary in order to stabilize and prevent further damage from occurring. Often surgery is required to remove or repair ruptured blood vessels and bruised brain tissue.

Military members have legal recourse when they have suffered injuries. You may be entitled to compensation for your medical expenses, lost income and pain and suffering.
