A mild or traumatic brain injury or head trauma can cause major changes in your life and the life of your family. A person’s brain controls their physical and mental abilities. A brain injury can severely limit the ability to function. It can negatively impact a person’s ability to move, comprehend, solve problems, remember their past, communicate and socialize. It can cause dramatic changes in a personality and behavior. Full recovery from a brain injury is possible, but often times some type of permanent disability is suffered.
What is Traumatic Brain Injury
Traumatic brain injury or (TBI) occurs when an outside force injures the brain. As a result, brain function becomes temporarily or permanently impaired. Traumatic brain injury is a major cause of disability and death, especially with children. A traumatic brain injury can be the result of such things as a slip and fall, a car accident, a motorcycle accident or some other type of accident.
Brain Injury Recovery
As mentioned above, it is possible to fully recover from a traumatic brain injury. However, many brain injuries result in some type of permanent disability. Recovering from a brain injury usually takes considerable time and involves extensive rehabilitation including physical therapy, speech therapy and occupational therapy. The recovery period and associated costs must be taken into consideration when pursuing a claim for a traumatic brain injury.
