Brain Injury Recovery and Rehabilitation Costs
Fort Lauderdale, Miami, Plantation, Palm Beaches
Recovery from a brain injury is a long, difficult, and costly process. Fort Lauderdale, Florida, brain injury lawyer Joseph I. Lipsky is dedicated to helping victims of all types of accidents overcome the mountain of obstacles to their recovery.Immediate Intervention
Traumatic brain injuries occur when an impact to the head disrupts brain function. Because this disruption can cause permanent damage, it is important to seek immediate medical attention and stabilization.
Emergency room doctors evaluate patients with clinical examinations and are likely use a CT (computerized tomographic) scan or MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) to assess the extent of brain trauma. A misdiagnosis or improper treatment recommendations may further harm the patient and result in medical malpractice.Acute Rehabilitation
During the hospital stay following traumatic brain injury, several different specialists may participate in the patient's treatment and recovery plan. These specialists will vary depending on the areas of the brain affected by the injury and the resulting physical or cognitive difficulties. The medical specialists may include:
- Speech therapists
- Occupational therapists
During this phase and throughout rehabilitation and recovery, the injured person's family plays a vital role in providing emotional support and direct care. Family and close friends can give medical professionals valuable insight into a patient's pre-accident life and behaviors. Equally importantly, they help reduce the patient's stress and anxiety during the uncertain times at the beginning of rehabilitation.Living with a Brain Injury
A brain injury victim may reach a point of maximum medical improvement which sadly is not a return to their fully functioning pre-injury life. At that stage, they may require supported living in a group home or nursing care facility on a permanent or long-term basis.
