Chicago Injury Lawyer at Cullotta Law Offices Remains Focused on Brain Injury – Including Traumatic Brain Injury Recovery
Generally, stages of recovery from a brain injury car accident often vary from person to person and depend on the severity of the injury.
For example, a mild traumatic brain injury (TBI) or a post-concussive syndrome may last days, weeks, months, even years after a collision on Illinois roads.
The more serious brain injuries will last longer. Typically, the more severe the brain injury (coma or vegetative -state) lasts longer or forever.
Consequences From A Mild Traumatic Brain Injury may include:
- Skull Fractures (cracked skull)
- Aggravated Chiari-1-malformation
- Amnesia, memory loss
- Word finding loss
- Hearing loss
- Change in vision (sensitivity to light)
- Math problems (unable to count money, balance your checkbook)
The stages of brain injury recovery vary from person to person and typically are based on the severity of the TBI.
The Brain Injury Association of Illinois (BIA of IL) is a non-profit organization that provides services and programs to individuals who have sustained a brain injury in IL.
