Advice For Brain Injury Victims And Their Families
After a traumatic head injury, observers may think the victim has recovered once he or she has awoken from a coma, or once bruising and swelling are no longer visible. In many cases, the victim and his or her family know better. Even if the victim is lucky enough to have body functions remain normal, there are often other consequences of a brain injury, including the following:
- Changes in personality
- Difficulty concentrating
- Short-term memory loss
The victim of a traumatic brain injury (TBI) needs more than emergency room treatment and post-trauma care. He or she may need extended therapy with a neuropsychologist or similar type of professional. The injured person may be unable to work and may require personal assistance. Schedule a consultation with an experienced traumatic brain injury lawyer.
