March Is Traumatic Brain Injury Awareness Month

March 12th, 2015

Traumatic Brain Injury, or TBI, is a complex medical condition that can occur when the brain or skull suffers a sudden blow or trauma. TBI is an extremely difficult condition to diagnose, and can come with a broad spectrum of symptoms. Unfortunately, thousands of Americans will be a victim of a TBI every year, making this one of the leading causes of death and disability in the United States.

March of 2015 is National Traumatic Brian Injury Awareness Month, and at The Yost Legal Group, Baltimore Personal Injury Law Firm, we want to do our part to bring this issue to the forefront of the national conversation. In honor of this important occasion, we have created a brand new Infographic that sheds some light on the harsh realities of suffering and living with a TBI.
