The Effects of Brain Injuries
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), nearly 2 million Americans sustain brain injuries each year. Sadly, a large number of these people will never regain normal function and will require long-term medical care.
There are different types of brain injuries, but each has the potential to alter the victim's life. Some of the most common symptoms of brain injuries include:
- Loss of motor function
- Language difficulties such as an inability to perform or understand speech
- Sexual dysfunction
- Cognitive changes including difficulties concentrating and problem-solving
- Memory loss
- Behavior changes including mood swings, anxiety, depression, and extreme anger
Brain injuries can impact your ability to return to work and result in the need for home modifications, adaptive medical device assistance and long-term rehabilitation. Brain injuries can also affect family members as well as the injured individual, especially when that individual is a family's primary source of income.
Brain Injury Treatment
Treatment for a brain injury may require multiple surgeries, induced coma, and extensive follow-up care. When recovery is possible, long-term rehabilitation often requires a brain injury team that may include neurologists, neuropsychologists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, recreational therapists, speech and language pathologists, and others.
Medical treatment and rehabilitation associated with brain injuries are incredibly expensive. When you add to this an inability to work, an interruption of social and family life, and the physical and emotional suffering that can accompany these injuries, it's important to work with an experienced New York personal injury lawyer to ensure you can obtain maximum financial compensation.
