The brain is the most important part of the body and also the most fragile. There are so many things that can affect the brain, all of which can lead to serious injuries, disabilities, and cognitive problems. Even the slightest hit to the head can cause an injury to your brain that has repercussions throughout the body. Head trauma, slip-and-falls, blows to the head and many other injuries in the workplace can change your life in an instant. A brain injury can change the personality of the victim, their cognitive abilities, and their physical abilities.
