A brain injury can affect you for the foreseeable future

It is difficult to live with a brain injury. After a collision, you may discover that you do not have the cognitive abilities that you did in the past. As a result, you must work on healing yourself and recovering the abilities you had prior to the accident.

It can be complicated to treat a patient with a brain injury, because no two injuries are alike. That means that it is hard to know exactly what to do to treat a patient. Treatment requires trial and error in many cases.

How many people suffer brain injuries in motor vehicle crashes?

Motor vehicle accidents account for around 14.3 percent of people with brain injuries. Each year, a total of 2.5 million people suffer brain injuries in a variety of ways, so that means over 350,000 suffer brain injuries in car crashes each year.

What happens when someone suffers a brain injury?

The injured brain does not function in the way it did in the past. The nerve tracts, neurons and other parts of the brain may be affected. These changes can change how a person reacts, acts and thinks. It may affect the way a person's body moves or feels. The body may no longer be able to regulate temperatures well and the person may struggle with bladder control or bowel functions.

What kinds of treatments are available for people with brain injuries?

Since the type of brain injury influences the treatment options, there is no one-size-fits-all treatment plan. Some people may require surgery to reduce pressure on the brain. Others may require physical therapy. Some may need epilepsy medications. Since there is such a variance, it's a good idea to work with your attorney to record your injuries and information about what you will need in the future.

When you do that, your attorney can help you file a claim for an appropriate amount of money, so you can get the compensation needed for ongoing medical care.
