Brain injuries are one of the most serious personal injuries a person can sustain. Unlike other areas of the body, it is extremely difficult for the brain to regenerate and heal itself.  Scientist are still trying to understand the way different neurons behave and stem cell treatment is still complicated and somewhat controversial. When your head suffers a blow during an accident, your brain will swell and begin to press against the inside of your skull. This can result in the brain cells becoming dormant.  The problem is that if the damage is too bad or too extensive, the regeneration process for brain cells cannot keep up and cell death occurs. Without healthy brain cells, the body cannot function properly and sets off a domino effect causing certain systems and organs to no longer perform as they should.


As scientists continue to discover more about different therapies for treating serious brain injuries more treatments will become available.  However, those treatments often incur overwhelming medical and therapy expenses - all during a time when you most likely will not be able to work.

Consequences of Brain Injury

The problems you experience as a result of your brain injury will depend on the specific area of your brain that was injured, and the extent of the damage. Some of these consequences include:

  • Seizures

  • Paralysis

  • Loss of vision

  • Hearing difficulties

  • Cognitive difficulties

  • Inability to speak or understanding writing

  • Loss of self-control

  • Mood swings

  • Violence

  • Depression

  • An increased risk for degenerative brain disorders


This is by no means an exhaustive list. Since your brain controls so many different mental and physical functions, a wide variety of problems can occur based on the damage sustained.
