It’s the reality that many people with brain injuries suffer from long-term consequences. They may have mood swings, impaired language skills, a higher risk of seizures or strokes and many other issues to deal with on a daily basis.
Since these injuries are relatively unpredictable, it’s hard to say how long you’ll be affected if you suffer from a blow to the head. A moderate or severe injury could cause significant trouble for you in the future, which is why it’s so important to work with your attorney to get the compensation you need for ongoing care.
If you’re newly diagnosed with a brain injury, know that you’re not alone
As someone who has been diagnosed with a brain injury, you need to know that you’re not alone. People are all around you who want to help you recover and have the resources to care for yourself in the future.
You may suffer from challenges in the future, like having trouble with cognition or suffering from seizure activity. Acute traumatic brain injuries can, and usually are, life-altering conditions. Even with an early diagnosis, the truth is that you’re going to need substantial financial aid and support to live life as well as possible in the future.
The cost of having a brain injury adds up. You may need physical therapy, surgery, assistive medical devices and other treatments, therapies or supports in the future. You deserve to be compensated for the injury you’ve suffered.
