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

“I am very pleased with the results this law firm obtained for me. Their professionalism, attentiveness and friendliness was outstanding. They listened to me, answered my questions, advised me and kept me informed. A truck hit my car causing me serious injuries, medical bills, lost time from work and damaged to my car. They took care of everything wonderfully. They helped with getting my car repaired and a rental car. They helped me get medical help. They got my doctor bills paid, kept me from having to go to court and obtained a settlement for me beyond my expectations. Four of my family members have used these guys and had equally good experiences. One of my relatives consulted with them and got great advise about handling her matter. Mr. Bisnar told her she didn't need an attorney and told her how to handle it. She couldn't believe the compassion and great advise, especially without a fee. Mr. Bisnar helped my brother-in-law get a multiple six-figure recovery in an employment law dispute. Starting with the receptionist, my paralegal, the paralegal supervisor, Mrs. De La Torre, Mrs. Barker and Mr. Bisnar himself, everyone was helpful, friendly and professional. It was a refreshing experience after a bad accident. They send me a birthday card with a Baskin Robins gift certificate every year. In January they send me chocolate dipped fortune cookies. They have even offered me Lakers' tickets. They certainly didn't forget me after my case was done.”

“INTEGRITY, CONFIDENCE AND THOROUGHNESS-THIS FIRM IS AMAZING! when my German Shepherd was falsely accused of biting a child, I thought, who better than the best personal injury attorney out there to ask for advise? Researched best attorneys in OC for dog bites, and was directed to the law firm of Bisnar and Chase. To say I was astounded at the depth of the response I received to my online enquiry is an understatement.
Upfront they said they weren't defense attorneys, but (after winning numerous severe dog bite cases over the years) they took the time to line item their opinion of how events would unfold (putting my mind at ease). In this day and age, the fact they took the time out of their busy day to respond so thoroughly to a cry for help ( inwhich they had absolutely nothing to gain), speaks volumns about the integrity of this firm. I wouldn't hesitate to use them, or refer them.”

“My car accident happened in April. I called Bisnar Chase, and was able to get information that helped me deal with the insurance on my own. They didn't take my case, but Mary took my call both times I called; she was so very helpful!! I hope I don't need them again, but if I do, I know they'll help me. FIVE STARS!!”
