A brain injury can be the worst type of injury that an accident victim may suffer.  While a back or neck injury will affect your performance at work or may affect your personal life, a brain injury may not allow you to function in any capacity.  Following an accident to the head, the personality, physical being, and mental state of the victim may become different.

Those who have suffered such an injury do have resources, but the consequences of this type of injury are devastating.  Rehabilitation specialists can help the injured recover.

The aftermath of a head injury can be very worrisome and confusing for the loved one of a victim as they deal with a whirlwind of emotions, doctors and hospital staff, insurance companies, and the like.
