Brain and Spine Trauma

Also known as: Head Injury, Spinal Cord Injury

Brain and spinal injuries are most often caused by motor vehicle crashes, sports injuries, firearms or falls at home or work, and a number of these people have long-term disabilities as a result of the injury. Spinal cord injuries affect millions of Americans yearly and many live with the continuing effects of these injuries.
