Georgian residents who get into a big accident may struggle with numerous impacts on their health over time. Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are one such example. If you have suffered from a TBI, you will likely be dealing with the consequences for a long time to come.

BrainLine takes a look at the impact of moderate to severe TBI in particular. These are the injuries that can affect you in multiple areas of your life. The impacts can be physical, emotional, and mental. They can affect your cognitive abilities, such as memory or concentration. It can affect your temperament, too. People with TBIs are more likely to have mood swings or sudden, unexplained bursts of anger or other strong emotions.

Physically, you could experience nerve damage and pain, numbness, or trouble with movement. Some people find themselves experiencing paralysis if the injury is severe enough. Over time, these things may be worked on through physical therapy or other means of healing. However, it can sometimes be a grueling process that takes a lot of effort, time, and money.

Even less fortunately, there are some cases in which every effort is made to bring you back to health, but your body is simply not able to return to where it had once been. This can be a huge mental blow. If you have been injured and suffer from a TBI because of that, you may want to contact an experienced attorney. They can help you seek compensation to help you get through this recovery process.
