We consult with experts to calculate costs of your treatments and anticipated future medical needs. We then pursue your rightful compensation from the negligent person or corporation that caused your brain injury.
Importance of Immediate Care for TBI
Symptoms of a head injury sometimes do not manifest for days or weeks after an accident. In fact, one may not notice the changes in his or her own cognition, memory, judgment, senses or behavior until these symptoms become apparent to loved ones, work colleagues and neighbors. By then a victim may have missed precious opportunities for early brain injury treatments. For this reason, accident victims should seek the care of a doctor as soon as a head injury has occurred. A doctor can examine a victim to detect early signs of brain damage and prescribe important tests to confirm a diagnosis. Early detection of TBI leads to early medical intervention that may improve chances of recovery.
Urgent Care for Traumatic Brain Injuries
Urgent care for a brain injury can sometimes mean the difference between life and death. The emergency responders may stop bleeding or deliver oxygen at the scene of the accident. Upon arrival at the hospital, urgent care doctors may need to reduce swelling or relieve skull pressure on the brain to prevent further damage. Doctors typically administer the Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS), the Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS) or the Trauma Score to determine the level of damage to the brain so they can develop an effective patient care plan.
Long-term TBI Care
Many TBI patients need rehabilitation to regain cognitive skills, motor skills and memory. Patients with permanent damage may benefit from vocational rehab to learn to live with a disability. Doctors might also prescribe pharmaceuticals to relieve pain, fight infection or reduce inflammation associated with the brain injuries.
Patients with the most severe brain damage can no longer care for themselves. Most families are not equipped to take on the 24-hour, day-to-day tasks of caring for a loved one in an altered state and have to rely upon a nursing home or assisted living facility.
