From Concussion to Coma, Your Starting Point for Brain and Head Injury Information in the Web

The Brain Injury Information Page provides information about brain injury, concussion, coma and head injury for TBI survivors, families of survivors, and caregivers.

Our goal is to provide education and assistance with the process of diagnosis and proof of brain injury, sometimes called head injury. This page features articles, essays, information and diagrams about traumatic brain injury.

Our View of Advocacy: We of the Brain Injury Law Group make our living as advocates. But advocacy implies more than being a lawyer. It means dedicating oneself to the community we serve - the survivor, the family member of the survivor, the medical professional. To that end, we have created these pages to provide information, resources and links to help you learn and solve the problems you face.

Who We Represent: The actual practice of the Brain Injury Law Group is representing individuals who were injured as a result of the wrongful conduct or negligence of someone else.

Of the many thousands of questions we have heard in our years of brain injury advocacy, three themes keep repeating themselves:

  • With coma cases, the doctors are saying only "we will just have to wait and see."
  • In concussion cases, the doctors are saying there was no permanent brain injury; and
  • Regardless of the severity of the injury, there is a significant ignorance about the long term behavioral problems and symptoms of brain injury.

Thus, this page now begins with three major divisions:

  • Coma Injuries
  • Subtle© Brain injuries, that condition formerly known as "mild brain injury"; and
  • Brain Injury Symptomatology.

Coma: Our focus since the beginning of our web advocacy has been on what can we do to help the family and friends of someone in a coma, while they are waiting for progress. That continues to be the theme of this page, and its companion page: waiting.com.

Subtle© Brain Injury: Our starting point of what we now simply call "subtle brain injury" continues to be overcoming the prevalent misconception that even though there was no documented loss of consciousness, no blow to the head, and negative imaging studies that there can be a profound permanent change in the way the brain works, after a concussion. We have substantially expanded our efforts to explain the science of "subtle brain injury" in our website: subtlebraininjury.com. To continue on with our treatment of subtle brain injury on this page click here.

Symptomatology: The third major area of focus is a much more detailed treatment of the symptomatology of brain injury. The classic approach is that those with coma injuries have very specific focal deficits, and the "a" and "dys" words of the brain injury glossary are often used to describe these deficits. And most of what is being done in brain injury rehabilitation relates to treatment for the "a" and "dys" conditions. Yet, from the beginning of our brain injury advocacy, we have been struck by the paradox of the numerous miracles in coma cases, and the countless tragedies in the non-coma cases. As time passes, what begins as drastically different medical emergencies, pose remarkably similar challenges to the survivor and the survivor's family and friends. After the "a" and "dys" conditions have been identified and treated, the diffuse and subtle problems relating to fatigue, memory, multi-attending and depression remain. So while we have expanded our treatment of the focal deficits, our most important challenge is to broaden the understanding of the subtle effects of brain injury. Click here.
