About

A concussion is a traumatic brain injury or TBI. Multiple concussions can cause a lifelong chronic disease process, including chronic traumatic encephalopathy or CTE. Most people think of CTE and the NFL/NCAA Concussion litigation. But, CTE is not the only consequence of brain injury as it affects each person in different ways as well as their families. More than 2.5 Million Americans suffer a brain injury each year in the United States at an economic cost of 80 billion dollars per year. 294,000 service members suffered the signature of wound of the conflict's in Iraq and Afghanistan. The NFL and NCAA concussion litigation has shined a spotlight on this very real public health safety concern. Visit www.usLAWS.com for further information or a personal consultation.
