Living with a Brain Injury

Living with a Brain Injury

Depending on its severity, a traumatic brain injury may resolve in days to weeks, or it may be last for the remainder of a victim’s lifetime. A victim’s prognosis for recovery varies depending on the nature of the injury, the victim’s support system, and their attitude and outlook for rehabilitation.

Learn more about what a traumatic brain injury victim may expect after acquiring their injury.

Types of Traumatic Brain Injury

Traumatic brain injuries are caused by a bump, blow, or strike to the head. They fall under three categories: mild, moderate, and severe. A mild traumatic brain injury may involve a brief change in mental status or consciousness, while a severe traumatic brain injury may involve an extended period of unconsciousness or amnesia after the injury.

Recovery Prognosis for Traumatic Brain Injury

While many mild traumatic brain injuries resolve on their own after days or weeks with proper rest, moderate to severe traumatic brain injuries are more likely to affect major elements of a victim’s life for extended periods of time. Often, victims of severe traumatic brain injuries are unable to live independently or earn an income and are forced to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars for medical treatment and rehabilitative care.

Most traumatic brain injury victims experience the following symptoms, with more severe injuries causing these symptoms to present themselves for a prolonged period of time:

  • Persistent headaches

  • Cognitive difficulties

  • Personality changes

  • Confusion and irritability

  • Memory problems
