If a person sustains a severe traumatic brain injury, how much functional ability can he or she recover?

The answer to that question depends on the relative severity of the injury, what parts of the brain were affected by the trauma and the patient’s willingness to work at recovery. There is a spontaneous recovery period, which may take months or years, just after the injury. During this period, the brain tries to repair damaged neurons. Rehabilitation does help the brain to retrain other neurons and create new working pathways. Often, physical skills and other functional skills must also be relearned.

Plaintiffs suffering from traumatic brain injury need the assistance of an experienced personal injury lawyer to enable them to recover fair and equitable compensation for their injuries. Often, traumatic brain injury is a life-altering event.
