New Jersey TBI patients and recovery strategies

New Jersey brain injury patients may be interested in learning new ways to recover from trauma. Military members are some of the most commonly affected individuals, and concussions are the most common traumatic brain injury they experience. Healing from a concussion is a naturally occurring process, and better overall health can boost recovery. The days and weeks after a concussion can cause a variety of troublesome symptoms, including confusion, light sensitivity, trouble sleeping, headaches and memory loss.

It is common for soldiers not to remember the explosion that led to a concussion. Others may not remember the impact that caused the traumatic brain injury, either. A concussion does not require being knocked out completely, but any loss of consciousness lasting less than 30 minutes is considered a concussion. It is possible to speed recovery time and reduce the long-term effects of a concussion by following some simple rules.

Those who have sustained a traumatic brain injury should avoid drinking as alcohol makes future injury more likely. It is also important to avoid subsequent injuries by taking sufficient time to recover, wearing a seatbelt, not playing sports and avoiding strenuous activity. Taking things easy after a concussion can help reduce symptoms such as headaches and dizziness as well.

A brain injury can have lasting physical and mental effects, whether it occurred in the line of duty, during a car accident or while playing sports. A personal injury attorney can often help injured victims seek appropriate compensation if their injuries were caused by the negligent actions of another person or entity. The amounts sought could include medical expenses, short- and long-term care costs, transportation to and from treatment, pain and suffering and lost wages.
