Over 5 million Americans are currently living with symptoms resulting from a traumatic brain injury (TBI). But for many brain injury survivors, the cause of their injury (and symptoms) may not be apparent to an outside observer.
That’s because some TBI symptoms – such as slurred speech, or an unsteady gait – can appear similar to the effects of intoxication.
Naturally, this can cause problems for TBI survivors. And there are many documented cases where an incorrect assessment by authorities has lead to difficult encounters.
To help combat this, De Caro & Kaplen, LLP, have introduced a free, personalized brain injury identification card. The wallet-sized card can be carried by TBI survivors to help easily convey their circumstances to authorities.
This infographic looks into the key facts and figures surrounding TBI in the USA and explains why a brain injury identification card is necessary.
