    Brain injury rehabilitation

    A brain injury is often severe, with far-reaching affects extending from the patient to their family and friends – as a collective they must come to terms with the impact of the injury, whether long term or short term. Brain injuries can manifest themselves in different ways, depending on the area of the brain affected and the severity. This may include:

    • Memory loss, which could be temporary or permanent
    • Personality changes, which range from subtle or very apparent
    • Difficult in interacting with others
    • Mood changes
    • Loss of physical sensation
    • Difficulty with problem solving
    • Communication problems

    Whether a brain injury has occurred due to a fall, road traffic accident or an incident in the workplace, you should seek medical attention immediately. If it was a friend or family member affected, encouragement to see a doctor is vital, as they may not realise they have been injured – either due to shock or with delayed onset of concussion, for example. Seeing a doctor does not take long but could significantly help your recovery, or even save a life.

    What is brain injury rehabilitation?

    Brain injury rehabilitation is one part of the road to recovery, and will likely be combined with medication and other treatment types. Brain injury rehabilitation may involve:

    • Simple mental exercises
    • Therapeutic treatment
    • Neuro-physiotherapy

    The length of time required for brain injury rehabilitation will likely differ greatly from person to person, depending on the damage caused in the first place, and how well you respond to treatment. You may require ongoing care, perhaps full time from a professional or part time from a friend or relative.

    Whatever your circumstance, a brain injury is a highly traumatic experience and if it someone else was to blame, then you should check your eligibility to receive compensation. Accident Advice Helpline has a helpful 30 second online tool, which will also calculate your potential compensation entitlement – this can be very useful to get an idea of how much you may be able to claim.
