Brain Injuries, particularly concussions, are in the news practically every day. Thankfully, there has recently been great interest in the causes and repercussions of head injuries as a result of the National Football League litigation. Now attention is being focused on many potential causes of brain injury aside from football including other sports, accidents, and combat-related head trauma.
This book is written for the lay person to provide a simple and clear explanation of the medical and legal issues surrounding brain injuries and to educate brain injury victims and their families of what to expect after suffering a brain injury, whatever the cause. The book, written by attorney Sandra Worthington with assistance from a professor of anatomy at Drexel University College of Medicine in Philadelphia, breaks down the basic anatomy, current diagnostic testing and treatment approaches, and legal aspects of brain injury in a concise readable form using plain English and with illustrations.
The book, titled The Brain Injury Handbook: Medical and Legal Perspectives, is available for free on this website or can be ordered for $16.95 on Amazon.com.
