Help for Families and Care Givers
Traumatic Brain Injury Attorneys
"My husband used to be so calm. But after
his injury, he started to explode over the littlest things. He didn't
even know he had changed."
When someone close to you has sustained a TBI,
it can be hard to know how best to help. They may say that they are "fine",
but you can tell from how they are acting that something has changed.
If you notice that your family member or friend
has some of the classic symptoms, that are getting worse, or not getting
better, talk to them and their doctor about getting help. You might also
want to talk to people who have experienced what you are going through.
Your State Brain Injury Association may be able to help, as may the National
Brain Injury Association.
You can reach BIA National office by calling the
toll free BIA National help line at (800) 444-6443. You can also get information
through the National BIA website at www.biausa.org. Additional information
about brain injury is available through the Center for Disease Control
& Prevention (CDC) website at http://www.cdc.gov/.
