The brain is one of the most powerful parts of the body. It is also one of the most fragile. The slightest of blows to the head could lead to some form of brain damage or brain issues that can affect how you are able to communicate, move, and handle daily activities. Brain injuries are very common in the workplace throughout California and the rest of the country.

There are catastrophic consequences that come with a brain injury, which can be caused by a collision, a blow to the head, a slip-and-fall, violence and many other causes.
