California Brain Injury Lawyers understand that brain injury can cause physical, cognitive, social, and vocational changes. Recovery is often a lifelong process of adjustments and accommodations for the injured individual and his or her family. Not all brain injuries are “traumatic” in nature. Brain injuries from other causes, such as oxygen deprivation, can be equally devastating.
Appropriate treatment of a brain injury can involve diagnostic testing, drugs, surgery, and rehabilitation. Rehabilitation – a critical aspect of optimal recovery – is prohibitively expensive. For catastrophic injuries , an extensive team of caregivers may be necessary. It is not uncommon for an injured individual to see a neurologist, neurosurgeon, physiatrist, neuropsychiatrist, vocational expert, life-care planner, neuro-psychologist, and physical, occupational and speech therapists. In most cases, the lives of the injured individual’s family are completely disrupted as they focus their energies on securing proper medical care.
