RESOURCES AVAILABLE THROUGH TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY PROGRAM
The attorneys at Cantrell, Goodge & Associate believe that Clinton residents injured in car accidents should know their legal rights. We also believe that educational efforts regarding traumatic brain injury should be promoted. Fortunately, the state of Tennessee offers a number of support programs for TBI victims. These resources are described on the webpage for Tennessee's Traumatic Brain Injury Program.
This program was created to provide assistance to those dealing with TBI. It provides resources not only to victims, but also to victims' relatives and caregivers. Offered programs include the following:
- Service coordinators, who work with TBI patients and family members to determine and address their needs. There are currently eight coordinators in Tennessee.
- Support groups, which provide TBI survivors and their loved ones with an environment in which they can share experiences, gain comfort and give advice. Seven support groups are operating in the state.
- Project Brain, a project which offers education and training to schools, health professionals and families. The project aims to improve education for children with TBI.
Many people with TBI suffered the injury as a result of a car crash. If these accidents were caused by the negligence of another person or company, the TBI victims may be able to sue. Successful lawsuits may result in compensation that can help address the high expenses that accompany TBI.
