Every year, approximately 1.7 million people will suffer the devastating effects of a brain injury. Many of these victims will suffer their injury as a result of a traffic accident involving a large commercial truck. The impacts of a traumatic brain injury may extend into many aspects of a victim’s life. These impacts may not always be readily apparent or obvious.
