Accidents happen - car accidents, slips and falls, and tripping on hazardous objects are fairly routine events. Unfortunately, an accident, major or minor, can sometimes cause considerable consequences. Trauma to the head can happen easily and can result in complicated injuries to the brain.
WHAT IS A TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY?
Suffering a traumatic brain injury (TBI) is something no one wants to imagine happening. Brain injuries can result in considerable residual deficits of brain function and can affect your cognitive abilities for a short or long time or permanently.
Serious injuries that cause lasting, and in some cases lifetime effects, not only impact the injured person, but spouses and other loved ones who become caregivers for the injured person. An injury to a loved one can dramatically change a person’s life.
