Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are often associated with sports injuries, such as head-on collisions.  Further, sports related traumatic brain injuries have been getting a lot of media attention due to the head and brain injury lawsuit filed by retired NFL players against the NFL.  See The NFL Settles Lawsuit Related To Concussions And Permanent Brain Injuries For $765 Million

However, traumatic brain injuries can be caused by various types of accidents, such as:

  • car and truck accidents,
  • pedestrian-car accidents,
  • bicycle-car accidents,
  • motorcycle-car accidents,
  • slip and fall accidents,
  • trip and fall accidents,
  • falls from heights, or
  • head injuries due to heavy falling objects.

The lives of individuals who suffer traumatic brain injuries are often turned upside down. In addition, the injured individuals are not the only ones affected, their families are also affected.

Injured individuals may feel alone because they may appear physically okay, when in fact they are not.  They may not be able to complete simple tasks such as balancing a check book.  Many become depressed and frustrated with their medical conditions.  It is also difficult for family members to know how to cope with a loved one’s traumatic brain injury.  There are many resources in Pennsylvania for individuals with traumatic brain injuries and their family members.  Below are resources for individuals who suffer TBIs in the Philadelphia area and other areas in Pennsylvania.  Some of the below resources are support groups and others are leading rehab facilities for individuals with traumatic brain injuries.
