Brain Injury Services Miracle Mile
After returning to Northern Virginia Saturday from the Brain Injury meeting at the State Capitol, I unpacked, rested up and then participated in the “Kit’s Miracle Mile” 10km. at the Fairfax campus of George Mason University. This event celebrated the survivors with brain injuries and raised money for Brain Injury Services (United Way #8237). Some of the things I learned:
- Did you know that 1.4 million people will sustain a Traumatic Brain Injury (“TBI”) each year in the United States ?
- Did you know that males are 1.5 times as likely as females to sustain a TBI ?
- Did you know that the leading causes of TBI are: falls; motor vehicle accidents; struck by/against; and assaults ?
These are some of the Brain Injury Facts disseminated at the 5th Annual the Fifth Annual Kit Callahan’s Miracle Mile. benefiting Brain Injury Services, Inc. Triathlon Trial Lawyer Doug Landau, who finished 5th overall, is shown here with Leesburg attorney Barbara Willliams after the race. Barbara brought her “Team BSW” to the George Mason University campus in Fairfax in order to support survivors of brain injury. This top Virginia Trial Lawyer and Landau had both attended the Brain Injury Retreat in Richmond. Both ABRAMS LANDAU, Ltd. and the Law Office of Barbara Williams help clients and the families of those who have suffered devastating injuries as the result of car crashes, falls, defective products, bike crashes, truck wrecks and other negligently caused trauma.
