Long-term brain injurys and how they affect insurance claims

The long-term impacts of a brain injury can be devastating to the person who suffered it as well as to his or her family. A brain injury can't be completely understood, because brain injurys are still relatively new to medicine. Treatments and research are still new, and that means that not all of the possibilities of an injury can be understood.

Because of that, it can be hard to know what to expect in the long term. Each person may heal differently, and even a slight differentiation between injury locations can make a huge difference in recovery. What is important to do is to consider all the possible outcomes of your injury, so you can make sure you get a monetary settlement from the negligent party that will cover your needs in a worst-case scenario.

There are a few things that are known about injuries. First, any serious injury is less likely to heal completely than a minor injury. The length of time the injury will take to recover will vary from person to person, and one person may heal quickly, while another doesn't heal at all. If a person is in a coma or loses his or her memory, then that can be a good place to start measuring the potential damage that has been done.

Fortunately, after two years of treatment, most people with moderate or severe injuries are going to continue to show signs that they are recovering from disabilities from the incident. Around 93 percent will still live in a private residency, even if some require supervision throughout the day or night. Thirty-three percent of those with moderate to severe injuries will be employed, while others may not be.
