The Ohio Brain Injury Lawyers with the law firm of Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy explain one of the most common conditions suffered by members of the military returning from service overseas is traumatic brain injuries (TBIs). In fact, the Brain Trauma Foundation estimates as many as 20 percent of veterans returning from Iraq have suffered head trauma.
Unfortunately though, the information scientists have regarding these injuries is limited. This, in turn, holds back advancements in discovering better treatments for such injuries.
In an effort to learn more about the effects brain injuries have on soldiers, the organization AMVETS Post 26 has raised a total of $18,000 to conduct a study on TBIs in soldiers at the Albert Einstein Medical Center.
An article from the Mansfield News Journal explains funding for the study was collected from donations that were made May 11, at the Rock ‘N’ Roll Festival for Ohio’s Wounded Heroes. The success of the event prompted organizers to make the fundraiser an annual event.
The study will focus on establishing a connection between TBIs and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder in soldiers. Experts say understanding the relationship between the two will help doctors better differentiate and treat the two conditions.
The law firm’s team of Ohio Personal Injury Lawyers recognizes the importance of finding better ways to treat soldiers and veterans who suffer TBIs. The firm hopes the study will help break new ground in TBI treatment.
