We Help TBI Victims Get Compensation for Their Physical Therapy and Rehab
When people suffer traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), there’s a chance their entire lives will change instantly. Cognitive and personality changes are common, as are changes in fine motor skills. Some TBI victims must re-learn how to do basic tasks such as standing, walking, dressing themselves, and eating. That’s because the connections in their brain that were previously wired for those tasks became damaged or altered by the injury.
Johns Hopkins Medicine says that TBI patients may need rehab to help them:
- Improve their ability to function at home and in their community
- Treat the mental and physical problems caused by TBIs
- Receive social and emotional support for their injuries
- Adapt to changes as they occur during recovery
Physical therapy and rehabilitation can also prevent many complications of TBIs, including blood clots, pain, bedsores, breathing problems, pneumonia, blood pressure irregularities, muscle weakness, and more.
The rehabilitation programs for TBI victims are often intense and grueling, but the results can speak for themselves. Victims often regain much of their lost cognitive and physical abilities, and many go from relying on others for daily tasks to being able to live independently and even work again.
Unfortunately, TBI rehabilitation can be expensive. Many health insurance policies only partially cover it, which means many victims and their families are unable to afford it.
