#Every90Seconds – Action for Brain Injury Week 2023
15 – 21 May 2023 is “Action for Brain Injury Week” – a vitally important time for Headway, the Brain Injury Association, to raise awareness of the issues facing brain injury survivors
This year the theme is #Every90Seconds, because every 90 seconds someone in the UK is admitted to hospital with a brain injury. Strokes, road traffic accidents, brain tumours and meningitis can have devastating, lifelong consequences for anyone. Headway is helping to restore the lives of brain injury survivors and raise awareness that every 90 seconds someone needs help.
Philip Edwards, one of our brain injury claims experts, said:
“I have been a supporter of Headway for around 30 years and since they launched started Action for Brain Injury Week I have been a strong campaigner for it. In my role representing brain injury survivors, I am constantly reminded of the life-changing impact of these injuries and I will do everything in my power to raise awareness and offer support to those who have been injured. This year’s Headway theme #Every90seconds highlights how common head injuries are and that many people do not understand how life-changing they can be.
Through the claims I work on, we can often help brain injury survivors get the medical and therapeutic support they need, as well as providing for other needs such as care, equipment and accommodation. However, I would like all brain injury survivors to have equal access to the support they need to get back to the life they enjoyed before their injury and it is important to raise awareness to achieve this.”
