It's a touchy subject.

The type of thing most people living in a multicultural country don't want to talk about.

But if you've suffered a brain injury in a car accident it's one you might want to be aware of.

Ethnicity and likelyhood of recovery from a brain injury.

Is there any connection?

" A recent study by the Kessler foundation has raised a new issue in the battle to treat traumatic brain injury; ethnicity. The study, published in Neurorehabilitation, found that minorities do not have the same success rates in long-term treatment as caucasions.

... Unfortunately, traditional treatments appear to lead to health disparities among minorities and poorer long-term outcomes. Why? The answer isn't clear at this point bu the researchers who conducted this study concluded that a better treatment paradiagm would take into account the ethnicity, language, religion and even sexual orientation of the patient."   - Paul Austin, The Legal Examiner

The subject discussed in this study also leads to another question.

Does the lawyer handling your brain injury case understand the nuances of your culture?
