Physical injuries can disrupt someone’s ability to walk, work, care for their families, and conduct their lives. However, brain injuries affect the injured party’s ability to think and attacks the very essence of who that person is. If we can’t think, then we really can’t continue to live and relate to our family and friends in the way we enjoyed prior to the brain injury.
