While all personal injuries are devastating, brain and spine trauma can be some of the worst. These injuries are serious and often have life-long consequences for the victims. If you have experienced brain or spinal cord damages, you may feel that your suffering went unnoticed and this is entirely common. However, there is a way to give your pain a voice. By filing a claim, you may be able to recover necessary compensation. But just how do these injuries affect the victims? Keep reading to find out more.
Consequences of Traumatic Brain & Spine Injuries
When a person is involved in a serious car accident or falls from a far distance, it can result in a blunt force impact to the skull and brain, which can easily affect the spinal cord, as well. For others, the spinal cord is injured while the brain remains entirely fine. Millions of individuals suffer from these injuries each year and the outcome can be life-threatening.
Victims are often left to deal with the following consequences:
- Behavioral changes
- Exaggerated reflex actions
- Multiple sclerosis
- Difficulty with balance
- Trouble hearing
The financial aspect of brain and spine injuries should not go unnoticed. Family members of the victim may be responsible for covering the cost of hospital stays, surgeries, and countless therapy sessions. Going without compensation not only makes it difficult to prevent debt, it can also make it impossible for those suffering to receive the medical care they need.
