Brain & Spinal (Catastrophic) Injuries
Impact of Brain & Spinal Injuries
While every injury should be taken seriously, brain & spinal injuries can change the course of a victim’s life and require serious medical and legal attention. These injuries can be caused by anything from car accidents to construction and industrial accidents. The most common defining factor of a catastrophic injury is the permanency or length of recovery time.
Needs and expenses unique to victims of catastrophic injuries can include:
- Long-term medical care
- Retraining or education for a new career
- Lost wages from an inability to work
- Physical therapy
- Physical alterations to living environment
- Medical devices to aid functionality

Here are a few examples of traditional and alternative physical therapy services that are commonly utilized to treat traumatic brain injuries:
Physical therapists help patients build strength and mobility to minimize or eliminate pain.
The goal of occupational therapy is to help victims of TBI regain daily life skills and adjust to physical and cognitive changes.
This can help patients move toward overcoming difficulties by identifying and removing inaccurate thinking and poor behavior.
Speech-language pathologists help diagnose, assess and treat issues with speech, communication and cognitive-communication.
This form of therapy is typically reserved for victims of brain trauma who are having trouble adjusting to life after the accident.
This form of rehab can help a patient overcome barriers to return to work.
It’s important to research how the brain functions after an accident to diagnose and treat specific deficits.
Some patients find it helpful to learn to relax and calm their mind.
This is an alternative medicine treatment in which pain is relieved by gentle manipulations of the skull.
Hyperbaric oxygen treatments
This treatment allows more oxygen into the body to help promote healing.
That's never the case. Any reputable personal injury attorney will not charge you any fees upfront. They will collect their payment from the settlement they win for you. Legal costs are usually about one-third of the overall settlement.
