Minnesota Traumatic Brain Injury
According to the M.S.A 144.661 statute of the Minnesota law, a traumatic brain injury is:
" a sudden insult or damage to the brain or its coverings caused by an external physical force which may produce a diminished or altered state of consciousness and which results in the following disabilities: impairment of cognitive or mental abilities; impairment of physical functioning; or disturbance of behavioral or emotional functioning."
If you have suffered a brain injury you could be facing years of rehabilitation and recovery. In some instances you may never recover from a brain injury and be left with a permanent disability. In other instances you may be able to resume normal activity with extensive rehabilitation and training.
