The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently approved a new device called the Q-Collar. This device could help lower the risk of sustaining traumatic brain injury (TBI) during high-impact sports. It works by securing the neck’s blood vessels to help raise the skull’s blood volume. In turn, this restricts the brain’s movement inside the skull and helps prevent TBI. In the event that you have already sustained a TBI in an accident, it’s in your best interest to call our law firm to speak to an Atlanta personal injury attorney today.
What Exactly is a Traumatic Brain Injury?
A TBI occurs when a jolt, blow, bump, or some other kind of external force results in damage to the brain structure or problems with its functions. Besides functionality issues, you could also experience other kinds of damage, including an imbalance of brain chemicals, seizures, fever, or swelling.
