Brain injuries can be devastating, impacting every aspect of your life. Often, these catastrophic injuries lead to long term disabilities that require ongoing medical treatment, rehabilitation, and possibly even daily care. Brain injuries can be mild in nature, such as a concussion which results in a full recovery after a few days or weeks. However, these injuries can also be extremely severe, making it difficult to perform ordinary daily tasks that were once routine.
