Rehabilitation following a traumatic brain injury can be a long process if the extent of the injury is severe.
Although this may require many different treatments and therapies, our understanding of such injuries has increased greatly over the last decade, enabling many more people to regain their independence as a result.
Therapy of various types can help the individual adapt, or sometimes overcome their disabilities and is invaluable in re-building lost confidence and self-esteem. Education and training for carers involved in assisting the individual after discharge are also critical factors of any rehabilitation programme.
Specialised rehabilitation treatment draws on the skills and knowledge of many specialists. Treatment programme's can involve areas such as physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech/language therapy and social work, amongst others.
Why an accident injury claim can help
Recovering from a traumatic brain injury caused by a reckless or careless driver can cause many pressures on the family and friends of the victim, let alone the individual themselves. Any help in such situations, whether it be emotional or financial, can benefit an individual who may require long term care and treatment. Claiming compensation under these circumstances can go some way to easing financial worries and providing some extra support for sufferers of such disabilities.
Under current UK law, compensation claims for injuries sustained as a result of negligent driver can be made at any time within 3 years of the accident occurring.
