This book, reviewed by a PhD professor of anatomy, helps the reader to understand the anatomy of the brain and the mechanics of brain injury. It also describes how a PA lawyer determines whether an injured person has a valid and winnable claim in a traumatic brain injury claim. This book contains illustrations, descriptive information in layperson terms and is meant only to give an overview. Sometimes the information a TBI victim gets in the doctor's office is so confusing or upsetting, a patient cannot grasp everything. The intent of this book is to help patients and their loved ones to understand what has happened to them and what the next steps might be in a traumatic brain injury in terms of the medical or treatment side as well as the legal aspects.
Many patients go to doctor appointments without anyone accompanying them. Those with brain injuries have a particular need for an astute, attentive individual to accompany them, especially in a situation in which the patient's brain has been damaged and their cognitive function impaired. This book can be shared with family members, patient advocates and care givers to help them to understand traumatic brain injury.
