FAQ with a Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyer

A head injury is hardly a familiar experience for most of us, and the confusion and questions that it brings about are only compounded by the symptoms of the injury itself. While a traumatic brain injury lawyer can help you through the legal process of filing a case and pursuing benefits and compensation for your serious head injury, some equally important information falls outside of the scope of a traumatic brain injury lawyer.

 

  • What is a traumatic brain injury?
    • A traumatic brain injury, or TBI, occurs when the brain collides with the skull or an object pierces or fractures the skull and damages brain tissue. Common causes of TBIs include motor vehicle accidents, slip and fall injuries, and sports-related injuries.
  • What types of rehabilitation are available to me?
    • There are three types of rehabilitation: inpatient, outpatient, and community treatment. Inpatient is for the most severe head injuries, when the patient stays in the hospital. Outpatient, on the other hand, is typically for minor head injuries, mild enough that the patient is able to come to the hospital of their own accord for treatment. Community rehab is when an OT or PT comes to the home of the injured person to conduct rehab.
  • Who will be involved in my recovery?
    • Apart from a traumatic brain injury lawyer, your recovery team might include behaviour therapists, nurses, a physician, rehabilitation therapists, a social worker, a psychologist, and OTs or PTs, depending on the severity of your TBI.
