Brain Injury Association of Michigan Outlines the Current State of Brain Injury

ichigan legislature does not override this veto. It has been proven that the number of fatalities and serious injuries resulting from motorcycle crashes drastically increases when helmets are not required. Florida repealed its helmet law in 2000. According to an August 2005 report by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, non-fatal head injury hospitalizations in Florida increased a staggering 80 percent in the 30 months directly following the law change.

The proposed $20,000 in required insurance does not even adequately cover the immediate medical cost of a TBI-related hospitalization, let alone the necessary and oftentimes life-long care needed for a TBI patient. The increased cost of care that will undoubtedly accompany the increased incidence of brain injury will fall on the Michigan taxpayer.

Traumatic Brain Injury in Military Veterans

TBI has become widely recognized in recent years due to the staggering numbers of brain injuries sustained by military service members serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. TBI is known as the signature injury of these wars and the BIAMI is directly addressing this issue in collaboration with the MDCH's TBI Council through the BIAMI Veterans Program.

The three major goals of this program are raising TBI awareness among veterans and their families, facilitating a working relationship with Michigan Department of Military Affairs with the goal of establishing a public/private partnership, and reaching out to private TBI health-care providers for the treatment of returning veterans. Accomplishments to date include the distribution of educational brochures, pre- and post-deployment briefings to military members and families about TBI, and enhancing the TBI support available to veterans.
