One of the most complex systems known to mankind is the human brain. With millions of cells working together to form complex thoughts, memories and creativity, not to mention guiding all movements, voluntary and involuntary, in the human body, it comes as no surprise that this vital organ is well-protected with a thick skull. Unfortunately, the brain is also very fragile and is vulnerable to injury when an impact strikes a person’s head.
Although many head injuries are minor, harder impacts on the brain could lead to very serious and severe head injuries, often called “traumatic brain injuries.” Common causes of brain injuries include slip and falls, sports-related impacts and accidents in vehicles and in the workplace.
A severe head injury can lead to serious long-term or even life-long consequences. Of all the organs in the human body, the brain is the slowest to heal. This means that any form of head injury could lead to months or years of rehabilitation and work in order for a victim to attempt to function normally. During these troubling times, victims often need help.
