Attribution: This article is the syndication source of a recently released press release

The Brain Injury Association of America is kicking off their yearlong campaign to educate the public about the dangers of traumatic brain injuries by declaring March as National Brain Injury Awareness Month.

According to the association's website, the goal of this campaign is to help prevent brain injuries, foster research and education to help those affected by brain injury and bring hope and healing to millions of people in the United States who are living with a brain injury.

The personal injury attorneys of Bisnar Chase are 100 percent supportive of the Brain Injury Association and the work they do in our communities. We represent victims who have suffered brain injuries as a result of auto accidents and other acts of negligence or wrongdoing.

The Brain Injury Association describes a traumatic brain injury or TBI as a blow, jolt or bump to the head or a penetrating head injury that disrupts the normal function of the brain.

The statistics compiled by this group are informative and powerful:

-- In the United States, 1.7 million people, including 475,000 children, sustain a TBI each year.

-- 3.1 million individuals live with a lifelong disability as the result of a TBI.

-- 52,000 people die and 275,000 people are hospitalized each year with brain injuries.

The main causes of TBIs are;
-- Falls (35 percent)
-- Car crashes (17 percent)
-- Workplace accidents (16 percent)
-- Assaults (10 percent)

-- The average cost of hospital-based acute rehab costs $8,000 per day.

-- The range for post-acute residential is about $850 to $2,500 per day.

-- Day treatment programs such as physical and occupational therapy cost about $1,000 per day.

-- The medical and other costs of TBI total an estimated $76.3 billion each year.

Traumatic brain injuries affect not only the victims, but also their families, says John Bisnar, founder of the Bisnar Chase personal injury law firm. "We represented a young brain injury victim whose parents had to take time off work or even give up their job to care for their son. It is emotionally and financially rough for these families."

It is eye-opening to see the statistics presented by the Brain Injury Association, Bisnar says. "It really drives home the impact these types of catastrophic injuries have on individuals and their families

During the month of March, let us all resolve not only to spread awareness, but also to support survivors and their families."

Client Reviews of Bisnar Chase

“John Bisnar was so professional and caring. When I found myself in this situation and never having a car accident before I didn't know what steps to take. Mr. Bisnar explained every single detail to me and what to expect. His staff was amazing, friendly and seemed to really care about me as a person. I lost all doubt I may have had about dealing with personal injury lawyers and couldn't be happier with the level of service I received. I was constantly updated on my case status and received far more from my settlement than I expected.”

“We received an email from A.G. Edwards stating they have received the settlement check from Nissan. Once again, I cannot begin to articulate our gratitude to the Bisnar Chase staff - we are so very thankful for all you have done for Josh. As parents, Charlotte and I can rest in peace, when that day comes, knowing that Josh's needs have been taken care of, and his financial future is in good hands with sound financial planners at A.G. Edwards. On December 17, 2003 we received a call from the paramedics stating that Josh and Lisa had been in a severe accident, and we needed to meet them at the emergency room. I remember telling God that I can deal with missing limbs because they can be replaced, but please do not take him from us. A month later we met with members of your staff for the first time, Josh had a traumatic brain injury and his future was looking pretty bleak; we had no idea where he would be eighteen months later. All we could think of at the time was that our son's future, his goals, and dreams had been taken from him so abruptly. As time passed, Josh continued to improve and he began his journey of recovery. Many have been involved in this process, and you and your staff have been an integral part of Josh's recovery, and we will be forever grateful. God has brought so many people into our lives, and we are so very blessed. Numerous emails were sent to Personal Injury Attorney's. John...you were on a ski trip at Big Bear with your family, and you were the only Personal Injury Attorney to respond - I believe this was divine intervention. Josh has a professor from Mt. San Jacinto College who has taken him "under his wing," and is showing him other career possibilities. John, the future looks good for Josh - thank you!”
