Know the facts about brain injury

One of the most commonly misunderstood forms of injury is traumatic brain injury, or TBI. It affects more people than most generally realize, and because the effects of such injuries tend to take a long time to reveal themselves, spotting signs of a TBI can be difficult. At the same time, though, they can be most effectively treated if they are caught early, so learning to identify when you or someone else has received a brain injury can make a big difference in the prospects for recovery by helping to insure that injured people do not -injure themselves.
