The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that each year, as many as 1.7 million Americans will suffer a serious brain injury. Of those victims, approximately 52,000 will succumb to their injuries while another 275,000 will be hospitalized.
For brain injury victims, one of the hardest parts of overcoming the condition is finding the resources that are needed to get back on your feet. Luckily for brain injury victims in Virginia, there are several organizations that can help.
One of these groups is Brain Injury Services of Southwest Virginia. An article from WDBJ 7 News told the story of how this organization was able to help one Virginia resident with transportation to medical appointments and setting her home up with a computer so she could attend online support group meetings.
Brain Injury Services provides assistance and education on the topic of brain injury prevention to both adults and children alike. So if you’ve suffered a brain injury and are in need of assistance, it may be wise to apply for this organization’s programs by completing the application and submitting it via mail or fax.
We applaud the efforts of Brain Injury Services and would like to remind you to remember that the Roanoke personal injury lawyers with the Skolrood Law Firm are available as a resource as well if you’ve suffered a traumatic brain injury. Feel free to give us a call at (866) 215-8065 to discuss your condition and to learn more about what we can do for you.
