As reported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately 1.7 million people in the United Stated sustain a traumatic brain injury (TBI) on an annual basis. While many TBIs can be relatively minor, such as mild concussions, others may be severe and may cause permanent and life-changing disabilities. No matter how mild or serious your brain injury may be, victims should always seek the appropriate medical care and usually require time off work, school, or other activities to rest and recuperate. For victims with more severe TBIs, they may require assistance and care with everyday activities for the long-term, and will likely require extensive treatment and rehabilitation. If you have suffered any type of traumatic brain injury and you believe the accident was another person's fault, an experienced Coweta County brain injury lawyer can help you receive proper compensation for your injuries and losses.
Following a brain injury, you will likely be required to take time off and rest. If you continue with your usual activities, you have a high risk of sustaining another more damaging TBI. Additionally, depending on your specific symptoms, which vary widely from patient to patient, you will likely require some type of rehabilitative care. Such rehabilitation may involve professionals such as physical and occupational therapists, speech and language pathologists, psychiatrists, social workers, vocational trainers or counselors, home health care nurses, and more. These professionals may be costly, and whoever was responsible for your brain injury should have to reimburse you for all of your brain injury-related costs.
