At Crossen Kooi, our legal team does not just strive to be exceptional
legal representatives for our personal injury clients, we strive to be
advocates. That is why we are proud to participate in
Brain Injury Awareness Month 2015 to help de-stigmatize those who have suffered, assist community education
about these debilitating injuries, and celebrate those who have survived
Brain Injury Awareness Month is led by the Brain Injury Association of
America (BIAA). The awareness campaign theme they have outlined for the
next three years is "Not Alone," and seeks to shine a light
on brain injury survivors, their families, and the full and vibrant lives
they continue to lead in our communities.
BIAA offers the following brain injury statistics:
- There are 5.3 million Americans living with traumatic brain injuries
- 2.5 million Americans survive a traumatic brain injury every year
- 35.2% of brain injuries are the result of falls
- 17.3% of brain injuries are the result of traffic accidents
- No two brain injuries are exactly alike.
BIAA has made promotional materials available for circulation in your office
or neighborhood, and has designated the
#NotAloneinBrainInjury hashtag for use on social media. For more updates and events scheduled
during the month of March, check back at the Brain Injury Awareness Month website.
Supporting Survivors Moving Forward
Throughout our practice as personal injury attorneys, we have been fortunate
enough to meet a wide array of different individuals who all have one
thing in common: not letting their brain injuries keep them from moving
on with their lives. While any unforeseen accident can be tragic and disheartening,
our legal team has also been inspired by resilience, perspective, and
dignity that brain injury survivors have consistently shown during their
recoveries. We are proud to stand beside them as counsel and—more
importantly—as neighbors during Brain Injury Awareness Month and beyond.
If you or a loved one have suffered a brain injury due someone else's
actions, then we invite you to
contact us at Crossen Kooi today. A dedicated and compassionate
Indiana personal injury attorney is standing by to hear your story.
