Nearly 1.7 million people in the United States suffer traumatic brain injuries each year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Brain injuries can have many serious symptoms and may include physical, emotional, and cognitive functioning for extended periods of time. Brain injury victims must often take time off from work, school, or other activities. Sometimes victims may require months or even years of rehabilitation in order to restore proper brain functioning. Other victims may never regain the ability to function normally, as rehabilitation will simply help them adjust to their new disability.
