A collection of educational books about the realities of living with a brain injury has been released. The books are an assortment of informative aides aimed at helping people from all different age groups understand the various different hidden effects of a brain injury.
One of the stories is geared towards primary school children and tells the story of a robot who has had an accident and bumped his head while playing. ‘What’s Up With Tamara?’ is another of the books focused towards older children and teenagers. In it the realistic storyline of a young girl who has had a TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury) and what the realities of living with an ABI (Acquired Brain Injury) are. There is also a parents’ handbook included.
Richard Hammond who experienced a brain injury when he was in a car accident several years ago has also put his support behind the books. He said that he is proud to show his backing of the books and has also produced an audio book to go with the collection.
The Book collection has won an award for United Kingdom Acquired Brain Injury Forum.
If you have had a brain injury and the cause of the injury was not your fault then you may be eligible for personal injury compensation. Your brain injury may have meant you are reliant upon others for care; you have had to give up your job and/or you have had to pay for home adaptation or rehabilitation out of your own money. A brain injury claim will consider such factors and the level of your pain and suffering will also be taken into account.
The effects of living with a brain injury are all very different and there are numerous charities and organisations set up to help individuals and their families who have survived a brain injury. Jefferies Solicitors has worked with one of the UK’s leading brain injury charities, Headway UK who help raise both money and awareness about different kinds of brain injuries.
