Traumatic Brain Injury

One of the unintended side effects of the Iraq war is that many of our healthiest young men and women are coming home with traumatic brain injuries. Traumatic brain injury, or TBI, has been called the signature wound of the Iraq war.

When I learned (from hanging out with lawyers who represent injured people) about the devastating personality changes that can result from TBI, I realized that in the next 10 or 20 years we are going to see a lot of Iraq War veterans entangled in the criminal justice system because of TBI and PTSD. So I was glad to see that the Centers for Disease Control have recognize the problem and published a brochure introducing the problem: CDC brochure on TBI.

I’ll be blogging more on TBI in the criminal justice system.
