If you have suffered a brain injury, a number of challenges may have arisen. Perhaps you had to take time off work or are struggling with headaches and memory problems. However, it is important to understand the potential long-term effects of a traumatic brain injury. At Kampf, Schiavone & Associates, we know that brain injuries have made daily life incredibly difficult for too many people in San Bernardino, and all over the state of California.
According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, the extent to which you may experience lasting damage after a brain injury depends on a number of factors, such as age, genetic issues, whether or not you received medical care, gender, the severity of the injury and the amount of times your head was hit. Across the United States, estimates show that more than five million people are dealing with the long-term consequences of a TBI.
After suffering a traumatic brain injury, some people face a permanent medical complication, such as epilepsy. Other long-term hardships that you may encounter include difficulty communicating, cognitive issues and behavioral setbacks. If you are trying to cope with the aftermath of a brain injury, you should try to remain positive and take advantage of every tool that is available. If your injury was caused by the negligence of someone else, they should be held responsible.
