The brain controls each of our physical, cognitive, and emotional movements making it one of the most important organs in the human body.
When someone suffers a brain injury, their access to immediate and ongoing medical care may make the difference between their survival, rehabilitation, and overall quality of life.
At Redkey Gordon Law Corp, Stockton, California brain injury attorneys understand that treatment and potentially long-term follow-up care is costly and time consuming, which means the injured person may not be able to return to work while they adjust to their new life.
Our goal is to pursue the best financial recovery outcome available for each unique brain injury client we represent, so they will have access to the rehabilitation options necessary to face their future with confidence.
Brain Injuries Can Cause Long-Term Disabilities That Require Lengthy Rehabilitation
An estimated one and a half million Americans sustain traumatic brain injuries each year in events ranging from slip and fall accidents and motorcycle collisions to car accidents and truck crashes, according to the Centers for Disease Control.
Over the same period, approximately 90,000 of those who suffer from brain injuries experience the onset of long-term disabilities. Cumulatively, 5.3 million men, women, and children are living with a permanent traumatic brain injury-related disability in the United States today.
When brain injury victims can gain access to the rehabilitation they need, their quality of life may improve immensely, which may lessen their personal challenges, as well as those of family members who are charged with their care.
After a traumatic brain injury, rehabilitation provides an opportunity for the injured person to get normal functionality back, or as close to it as possible.
What Are The Different Types of Brain Injury Rehabilitation?
Brain injury rehabilitation options will be different for each injury victim.
Depending on the extent of the brain injury, treatment and rehabilitation can take place in a hospital or other clinical setting, with some patients able to take part in an outpatient rehabilitation program.
For some, it may mean learning how to do things differently, when functioning cannot be restored to the level it was before the injury.
The types of rehabilitation and the specialists a patient will require depends on the severity of the injury, the parts of the brain that were affected, and what kinds of therapy are needed.
That can include:
- Behavioral therapy
- Cognitive therapy
- Neuropsychological testing
- Occupational therapy
