Catastrophic Brain Injuries
A catastrophic brain injury will change your life. It is an extremely serious injury that can cause permanent damage and sometimes even death. Brain injuries also majorly impact the victim’s friends and families’ lives. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), more than 2.5 million catastrophic brain injuries happen each year. Most of these injuries occur because of motor vehicle accidents.
Effects of Brain Injuries
Your brain working properly is vital part to life and functioning properly. A blow or jolt to the head can be devastating and cause many severe side effects. These effects can include, but are not limited to:
- Memory loss, short and/or long term
- Impaired balance, coordination and speech
- Coma or periods of unconsciousness
- Difficulty seeing or hearing
- Extreme anxiety or depression
- Trouble concentrating or being confused
- Possible seizures
Brain injuries can be caused from a variety of accidents, such as a construction site accident, motorcycle accident or getting injured while playing a contact sport.
Recovering from Severe Brain Injuries
Brain injuries are not injuries to take lightly. Depending on their severity, it could take months or years for victims to recover. Many victims will never fully heal. The healing process will require extensive hospital stays, multiple types of therapy and much more. All of this can add up and be very expensive.
