Traumatic Brain Injuries

Serious Head Injuries Can Cause Permanent Brain Damage

Brains are by far the most important organ – they control every function of our bodies, from the beating of the heart to the ability to blink. However, they are also one of the most fragile organs, as a simple bruise can cause serious complications that can inhibit its ability to function. In cases where the injury is more severe, known as a traumatic brain injury (TBI), the brain’s ability to send out the necessary signals could be irreparably damaged and even lead to permanent disability.

Not only do these types of complication significantly increase the future risks of these injuries, they can result in massive hospital bills.
