Going about your daily activities, we know you expect to be safe. You might not be aware just how susceptible we all are to traumatic brain injuries.

According to Brainline, “A TBI is caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head that disrupts the normal function of the brain.”
Symptoms of a traumatic brain injury differ depending on the severity, but can range from a brief change in mental status or a concussion, to more severe symptoms like an extended period of unconsciousness or memory loss.
TBIs are a risk for everyone, but they are the leading cause of death and disability among children and young adults in the US.
The CDC estimates that 1.5 million Americas sustain traumatic brain injuries annually.
These injuries are dangerous and can become costly, especially if the victim is unable to return to work.
If a TBI is caused by an accident with a drunk driver or a reckless workplace accident, how is it fair that you have to shoulder the financial burden of the injury?
Our children often enjoying playing sports in school or with a recreational league. For many, it is a way to stay in shape and learn teamwork.
Over the last decade, we have become more aware of the possibility of long-term damage in athletes’ brains from repeated concussions, especially in light of many pro football athletes experiencing degenerative brain disease.
Most schools and leagues have implemented strict concussion protocols for our children, but many concussions go unreported. If a child is allowed to continue to play after receiving a hard blow to the head, or they return to play before they are completely healed, the damage from another hit could cause major problems.
Any coach or school that allows a child to play after a suspected concussion should be held liable if there are any further injuries.
Traumatic brain injuries can be life altering. Whether you have personally suffered one or someone you love has, dealing with these injuries can be emotional.
Especially if our children are injured.
Moving forward, we know you are going to need compensation to cover your medical expenses and lost income if you can’t work. But will insurance cover everything?
