One of the most complex issues surrounding brain injuries is that each one is unique. There are many factors that have an effect on an injury to your brain and by extension what the recovery from that injury will be like. A car accident will cause a different type of brain injury than a construction accident or an explosion due to the different types of impact.
Our Virginia, Maryland and Washington, D.C. injury lawyers work with the victims of all types of accidents to help get them full financial compensation to cover treatment and rehabilitation. We will fight to get you and your family the help you need during this difficult and uncertain recovery period.
There is no simple answer to how long recovery from a traumatic brain injury (TBI) will take. The most severe cases of TBI can have a life-long impact. With proper treatment, some individuals can make a complete recovery and be able to go back to the lives they had prior to their accidents. However, the time it takes varies from individual to individual.
A number of factors will have an effect on the length of recovery:
In the same way that every TBI is different, each individual’s recovery will be a different experience. While some may recover reasonably quickly, only requiring a few weeks and mild medications, others will need much more extensive treatment and rehabilitation. Depending on which areas of the brain are damaged, some TBI victims require a combination of speech, physical and occupational therapies to return to the lives they led before their accident. Let us make your recovery less stressful by working tirelessly to get you the compensation you deserve so that you can focus on getting better.
