If you or a loved one suffers a brain injury, it's important to remember one thing: You never know what the future will bring.
While some people are able to fully recover from a brain injury, others find that their life has changed forever. Due to the fact that a brain injury can be so serious, it often calls for advanced treatment and therapy for the rest of a person's life.
Some of the biggest impacts of a brain injury include:
-- A change to your personality.
-- The inability to think critically and make sound decisions.
-- Severe mood swings.
-- Short and long term memory loss.
-- Loss of coordination and muscle control.
Along with the above, it's always possible that a brain injury could lead to a person's death. Sometimes this happens immediately following the injury, but in other cases, it doesn't occur until further down the line.
There are many types of accidents that can cause a brain injury. For example, this could be the result of a car, motorcycle or truck accident. Just the same, a slip and fall or construction accident could also cause serious injury.
