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.
As an in-home nurse or nursing assistant, you do a lot of driving to patient's houses for home visits. As you drive, you are likely thinking about your next case, how your patient is doing and how you can help them at the visit. But one day, while you're thinking about your work for the day, you get into a car accident. Someone hits your car on the way to your next patient, leaving you severely injured. One minute your day revolved around your patient's medical needs - and the next, you're worrying about your own health.
