)-- With the Department of Defense reporting record numbers of American troops returning home suffering traumatic brain injuries, LegalView.com is proud to continue reporting up-to-date news about veterans' brain injuries on its Traumatic Brain Injury blog. Most recently, the blog reported the story of Sgt. Frank Sandoval, who was buried in his hometown of Yuma, AZ after complications from surgery to correct a severe traumatic brain injury sustained in Northern Iraq. The blog is part of LegalView.com's comprehensive brain injury news and information portal, meant to be the web's most complete set of resources on this important public health issue.
Experts define traumatic brain injury (TBI) as a blow to the head that disrupts normal brain function temporarily or permanently. TBIs range from mild concussions to severe head injuries that cause life-changing brain damage. Symptoms of a brain injury vary widely, but can include memory problems, loss of speech and motor skills, loss of intelligence, even personality changes. More than 1.4 million Americans suffer some kind of traumatic brain injury each year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The Defense and Veterans Brain Injury Center adds that at least 14 to 20 percent of returning soldiers are affected by a traumatic brain injury, making it one of the major causes of death and disability on the battlefield.
