A traumatic brain injury requires immediate medical treatment, as letting symptoms linger can result in additional damage or even death.
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is one of the hardest injuries to recover from, as your brain is such a delicate organ. Everything about you, from your breathing to your memories is a result of your brain's functions. When you suffer a traumatic brain injury, you can lose memories, skills and abilities, sometimes without the ability to regain them. A TBI can effectively end your career, resulting in the loss of your income. It can also result in substantial medical expenses. If you've suffered a TBI due to a vehicular or work-related accident, you should speak with an experienced personal injury attorney.
When you suffer a broken bone as the result of an accident, you may think having the bone set is all the medical attention you'll need. In some cases, particularly if the break is in an extremity or limb, you could develop a condition known as Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS). CRPS is most commonly associated with broken limbs and resulting nerve issues in your extremities. If you broke a bone in a car accident, a workplace injury, or even a even a simple slip-and-fall accident at a retailer, it could result in permanent nerve damage and extensive medical expenses for years to come.
