- Over 1.3 million Americans fall victim to traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) every year. For many brain injury victims, once effortless day-to-day tasks are now a challenge. As a result, some TBI sufferers have had to become more reliant on family members for everyday life. While striving to overcome these challenges, many brain injury victims and their families also dream of pursuing or to continue pursuing a college education, but the significant financial burden of injury-related medical bills can make this lifelong goal seem impossible. Florida accident attorney, Jim Dodson wants to help make this dream more possible.
Jim has seen the life-changing toll TBIs take on their victims and their caregivers. Jim’s personal experience representing brain injury victims and his strong belief in the value of a college education lead him to create a $1,500 college scholarship offered specifically to injury victims and their loved ones.
