Brain injuries are very serious matters that can impact every area of your life. For some individuals, the impacts are seemingly temporary. As time progresses, they might recover some function, but not everyone is that fortunate. Some brain injuries, such as those caused by hypoxia, will impact the patient for their entire life. In these cases, the next of kin might choose to act on the patient's behalf and seek compensation for the damage.
Having to see your loved one deal with permanent brain damage due to a brain injury can be devastating. One thing that you might soon realize is that life as you once knew it is over. Instead, your life might become a constant battle for your loved one. You may be the one who is responsible for caring for them. You may have to set up medical and therapy appointments.
