A serious brain injury can cause coma, chronic headaches, dizziness, loss of speech function, loss of cognitive function and paralysis. The brain is very important to most functions of the body and an injury to it can stop some of these functions from working correctly. This type of injury can easily have life changing effects on the patient. They may no longer be able to work and support themselves and their family. They may have large medical bills that are not all covered by medical insurance or they might not have medical insurance at all. They have to get used to living with a disability and need the rehabilitation necessary to make this less disabling.
The Catastrophic Injury Resource Center was set up to help people that have had this type of life changing injury. A brain injury victim can call the Center or go to the website and get advice on the legal aspects of their accident and also help getting the resources that they might need from the community. The attorneys and staff at the Center are experienced dealing with the aftermath of this type of trauma and can give the appropriate help and advice. Obviously the Center welcomes families as many people suffering from these injuries can no longer communicate as they did before. Families will find an informational atmosphere that can help them understand what the future might hold.
If you or a family member has gone through this type of injury, you need to seek out help from a group like the Catastrophic Injury Resource Center. This group is staffed with people who understand these types of injuries and will help. Please contact them at the Catastrophic Injury Resource Center at 1-800-669.
