WSFA-TV 12 reporter Bryan Henry recently shared information with viewers about the effects of traumatic brain injury (TBI). Even mild TBI’s, like concussions, can have lasting long-term effects, and all brain injuries affect victims physically, mentally and emotionally. For the news story, Henry spoke with Beasley Allen employee Carol Stanley, whose son, Jason, suffered a traumatic brain injury as a result of an assault. In helping Jason deal with the lasting effects of his injury, Carol has become an advocate for awareness about brain injury, and also works to strengthen laws to prosecute those who commit violent crimes like the one in which Jason was injured.
