MINNESOTA CONCUSSION LAWYER – CAR ACCIDENTS
BRAIN INJURY ASSOCIATION OF AMERICA RAISES AWARENESS OF CONCUSSIONS FROM CAR ACCIDENTS
The Brain Injury Association of America (BIAA) recently announced it’s new brain injury awareness campaign to highlight public awareness of the major health problem of concussion injuries from car accidents.
This campaign, called #MoreThanBrainInjury, seeks to educate the public regarding brain injury related to disabilities. The BIAA reports that there are 3.5 million Americans who live with brain injury-related disabilities. 90% of all traumatic brain injuries are concussions.
Respected brain injury experts estimate that more than 50% of the victims of concussion-related disability go undiagnosed and untreated. This public health problem has been called “the silent epidemic” and “the invisible injury.”
CONCUSSION INJURIES AND DISABILITIES FROM CAR ACCIDENTS
A major part of the #MoreThanBrainInjury campaign involves raising awareness of concussions resulting from car crashes.
The goal of the campaign is to educate the public about the effects of traumatic brain injuries and concussion injuries, including the following areas of emphasis: increasing understanding of brain injury as a chronic condition; reducing the stigma associated with having a brain injury; showcasing the diversity of injury and demographics of the community; and improving care and support for individuals with brain injury as well as their families.
