March is brain injury awareness month. Over 3.5 million people suffer a brain injury every year. Although debilitating and life changing, their brain injuries do not keep them from wanting the same things we all want – to live a happy, healthy life.
Non-fatal brain injuries often result in a coma or amnesia. Nearly 43% of people who are hospitalized with a brain injury will have a related disability one year after injury. A person suffering a brain injury may be affected by short-term or long-term issues, such as:
- Cognitive function, like memory and attention
- Motor function, like coordination and balance
- Sensation, like vision and hearing
- Emotion, like aggression and depression
At The Gilbert Law Group®, we understand the consequences of trying to live with a brain injury. It can change the personality and physical abilities of the injured, making it very difficult to sustain the kind of life they want.
