Slip-and-Fall Accidents Can Cause Traumatic Brain Injuries

People may think that slipping and falling isn’t any big deal, but the truth is that these incidents can lead to serious injuries. One injury that can occur is a TBI (TBI). This type of injury can lead to several effects that impact the victim’s entire life.

One of the most important things to do when you suffer a TBI is to get prompt medical care. This enables you to start treatment as quickly as possible.

What might treatment entail?

Treatment for a TBI varies based on the severity and location of the damage. For most people who have this type of injury, brain rest is prescribed. Being told you have to do this means that you’ll have trouble working because you have to rest in a dark and quiet place. Looking at electronics and reading also aren’t advised when you’re on brain rest.

Medications, such as corticosteroids to help fight inflammation, might be prescribed. Severe cases may require surgery. Some people who have this type of injury might also need to go through occupational, vocational and physical therapy to recover some of the skills they lost due to the injury.

A TBI requires considerable medical care, which can become costly if the injury is severe. Anyone who was injured because of the negligence of another person should be aware of all of their expenses and other financial losses before they go about pursuing compensation. Get this done as quickly as you can because New York law limits how long you have to file your claim. Having experienced legal guidance can also help you focus on healing.
