What You Need to Know After Sustaining a Brain Injury

It is estimated that over one million Americans sustain head & brain injuries each year. The vast majority of these cases are the result of a blow to the head. These injuries may occur from a vehicle accident, a fall, or a defective product. A brain injury can ultimately be a devastating situation for both the victim and their family.

A brain injury can ultimately affect every aspect of an injured person’s life. A traumatic brain injury can cause difficulty performing every day tasks, having a relationship with friends and family, interfere with educational and employment opportunities, and can cause physical and psychological suffering.

Sometimes a brain injury can be difficult to detect. Although an accident or injury may seem minor, the individual who sustained the injury may develop disabilities that can potentially become very serious in the future. This is why it is so important to immediately seek medical attention if you hurt your head in an accident.
