You might not understand how difficult life can be after a brain injury until you or a family member suffers from one. Memory issues, loss of coordination and other more serious issues can result from what might seem like a small injury. For some, it can take a lifetime to recover from. Loss of work, piles of medical bills and the strain of becoming normal again can make things even more stressful. To assist you on the road to recovery, a brain injury lawyer can assist you and your family in getting the best care and due compensation
Head injuries can happen in a variety of ways. Some of the most common are:
Your brain is surrounded by the skull, a thick protective cover of bone and tissue that helps protect the most delicate organ in the body. When you experience a head injury, the brain can become injured as it hits the sides of the skull, or blood vessels can break and bleed into the brain. Swelling and loss of oxygen to brain cells can cause blackouts, seizures and even comas.
Depending on the severity of the injury, recovery can be a couple of days or a couple of years. Effects like personality changes or loss of memory can linger for years. Rehabilitation and treatment can become expensive. Serious injuries can leave victims paralyzed or in a vegetative state and unable to care for themselves.
