Absolutely, and if anything, that is our main specialty. We find that 60 percent of the people that have been in a moderate to severe car accident have evidence of a concussion or a mild traumatic brain injury. Every year in the United States there are 1.7 million traumatic brain injuries, and 75 to 90 percent of them are deemed to be mild. Now let me tell you that there’s nothing mild about a mild traumatic brain injury. It’s kind of like a mild case of cancer. And 50 percent of the people with mild traumatic brain injuries or concussions end up with long-term problems. And let me tell you, so many of them are overlooked by the medical community. They come in here, and we do screening. We do concussion screening on virtually every car accident case, and those that show presumptive evidence of a concussion we get to the specialists that know what they’re doing and we get justice for them.
