Try your local library. Here in PA, all our libraries have computers and printers that members can access. Copies are 10 cents.

Consider asking your local rehab hospital or local TBI - Brain Injury Support Group to order a bunch in or print a bunch for the group. Ours did.

If you have a smart phone, you can download it to your phone, edit the document with an app like "Write On PDF" and then save it to your phone so you can have it handy to show it if needed. I did that, emailed it to myself, and then printed it while I was a the library one day. It worked nicely! Good luck!

Had my TBI over 26 years. Nobody has knowledge about brain injury. Including doctors and lawyers. Until I learned about your firm. Thank you! Breaths a little light into my frustration with doctors and the fact that there is so little awareness.

I had my TBI April of 1996. I was a fantastic hospital when I had mine.
