Rehabilitation after permanent disability from brain injury

Previous posts here have mentioned the dangers that Connecticut residents face when they are involved in a motor vehicle accident. The most serious injury is likely a brain injury, which can leave an individual paralyzed or otherwise permanently disabled. These victims will not only face the prospect of intensive medical treatment in the immediate aftermath of the injury, but also the prospect of a lengthy - and expensive - rehabilitation outlook.

Test to detect concussions approved

Concussion issues have been in the news quite a bit over the last few years. Experts in the medical field are learning more about these brain injuries which, contrary to what may have been believed in the past, can have a lasting impact on a person. The good news is that, according to a recent report, a new blood test has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration that helps detect concussions in adults.

What were you like before your serious brain injury?

It isn't always easy to describe a friend or loved one's personality. We all have our "quirks," but our friends and family members who know us best accept us for who we are and enjoy our company. But, when a Connecticut resident suffers a serious brain injury, in most cases, they are never the same person again. Their physical abilities may be limited, their speech may be impacted and their personalities might change drastically.

Watching for concussion symptoms after an accident

There have been many news articles over the years about the issue of concussions, mostly because of concerns with football players, particularly in the National Football League. However, football players aren't the only ones who need to be worried about the potential danger of concussions. These serious brain injuries can affect anyone from any walk of life, particularly if they are involved in an accident of some kind, such as a car accident.

The risk factors for traumatic brain injuries

Traumatic brain injuries, known as "TBIs" in the medical field, can be life-changing injuries for anyone who suffers from them. Victims can be left without full use of their bodies due to paralysis, resulting in permanent disability. And as most of our readers in Connecticut know, car accidents are one of the leading causes of injuries throughout the country. The more serious the car accident, the greater the chance that someone involved will suffer a TBI.

Concussions are common brain injuries in accidents

Football season is in full swing, and many of our readers have probably seen the news coverage about the concussions that occur on a weekly basis in both the National Football League and in college football. But some people may not realize that concussions aren't just a concern for athletes - accident victims can, and often do, suffer concussions as well.

Pursuing financial compensation after a brain injury

Almost any type of accident could leave a Connecticut resident with serious injuries. Bicycle accidents, motorcycle accidents, car accidents and truck accidents are all too common in America. These accidents can have devastating consequences, leaving the injured victims with broken bones, internal injuries and, perhaps worst of all, brain injuries.

The long-term impacts of a TBI

There are some severe injuries that can drastically change the life of a victim. While no one ever expects to be involved in a serious accident, no one expects to suffer from a traumatic brain injury either. Nonetheless, many residents in Connecticut suffer from this tragic injury, impacting his or her life in many ways. It can be a very costly injury that could affect the health of a victim for the rest of his or her life.

What rehabilitation steps could help with brain injury recovery?

There are some severe injuries that residents in Connecticut and elsewhere never expect to suffer. But due to our daily life, such as driving motor vehicles, it is possible to be a victim in a serious automobile collision. As a result, a victim suffers a head trauma, causing present and future mental and health problems. While medical advancements have come a long way for brain injury sufferers, it is still a rough and long road of recovery.

Understanding the parameters and severity of brain trauma

There is a wide array of events that are unexpected. Despite them being unforeseen, residents in Connecticut and other states experience these surprising and unfortunate event, with one of them being a serious accident. Suffering brain trauma in a catastrophic incident can change a person's life in an instant. This does not only alter his or her life immediately but in the long-term as well.
