Traumatic Brain Injuries Can Be Caused by Many Things
There are a few things that people think of when they consider why a person gets a traumatic brain injury. They may think of car accidents or of sports injuries. The truth is that any blow to the head, or sudden stop that results in the brain hitting the inside of the skull, can lead to a brain injury. For example, slip and fall accidents, psychical assault, and medical malpractice can all cause brain injuries.
The Impact a Traumatic Brain Injury Can Have on Speech and Other Forms of Communication
When a person suffers a brain injury, communication can be challenging for them. They may have a hard time swallowing, they may drool, and they may have slow and / or slurred speech. Some of these symptoms will improve as time goes on, and as they go through rehab, but some will not. Make sure that your loved one gets the right care as soon as possible to ensure they have the best possible chance of a full recovery or maximum recovery.
The Financial Impact of a Traumatic Brain Injury Can Be Devastating
Unfortunately, many people who experience an accident that leads to a traumatic brain injury do not have the resources to get the care they need. The average brain injury costs at least $85,000 and up to $3 million to treat. The good news is that if the accident was the result of another person or entity acting carelessly or recklessly, then the it may be possible to recoup compensation for damages.
