Did your spouse suffer a head injury at work?

If your spouse has a physically demanding job, then it is likely that you see the impact of that job's wear and tear on their body and mind firsthand. You may also be one of the few people with the insight to understand when your spouse is just having a rough week at work and when they may have a serious injury.

This is particularly true when it comes to head injuries. Any significant blow to the head can leave a victim with a mild traumatic brain injury, or TBI. While these injuries could be worse, they are a very real threat to the victim's long-term health, employment and close relationships. Without proper medical treatment, your spouse may lose their job and destroy their relationship with you or other members of their family and community.
