Beasley Allen helps raise awareness of Traumatic Brain Injury

More than 40 Beasley Allen Law Firm attorneys and staff took the “Brain Freeze Challenge” to raise awareness for the Alabama Head Injury Foundation (AHIF) and all they do for victims of traumatic brain injury in our state. Supporters joined together for a big bite of ice cream and donated more than $1,000 to the cause.

Each year in Alabama, more than 10,000 Alabamians sustain a traumatic brain injury. The most common causes of these injuries include falls, domestic violence, motor vehicle accidents, and concussions. The Alabama Head Injury Foundation (AHIF) has more than 3,100 total clients across the state, including more than 300 in the River Region area. In 2015, AHIF provided direct services to 1,082 individuals.

“Many of our attorneys have handled cases involving clients who have sustained a traumatic brain injury by no fault of their own. Unfortunately, people just don’t understand the severity of these injuries and therefore do not know what to look for or how to help. The Alabama Head Injury Foundation does a good job educating the public and taking care of those clients in their care.”

— Jere Beasley, Founding Attorney

Sadly, even if a TBI victim appears to be well, they may still be suffering from short- or long-term changes that affect thinking, sensation, language or even emotions, creating depression, aggression, and other forms of unusual behavior. Studies have found that in patients who have experienced a TBI, suicide rates are increased two to three times when compared to those without a TBI, depending on the individual.
