Given the potentially devastating consequences of traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), many wonder if there is a way to cure them once they occur.
Below, our Kansas City and Topeka personal injury attorneys explain whether it’s possible to recover from a TBI completely.
The Three Classifications of a Traumatic Brain Injury
TBIs fall into three categories depending on the severity of the accident and injury: mild, moderate, and severe.
In general, the more severe the injury, the worse the victim’s prognosis.
Mild Traumatic Brain Injuries
TBIs are typically classified as mild when the victim loses consciousness for a few seconds to a few minutes. Most people who experience mild TBIs will recover from them completely in days to weeks. However, this is only the case if the victim receives proper rest and does not return to physical activity sooner than recommended.
Moderate to Severe Traumatic Brain Injuries
Moderate to severe TBIs, on the other hand, rarely have a positive prognosis. While moderate to severe TBI victims’ symptoms can be improved and managed with certain treatments, it’s rare for these individuals to make a full recovery.
Treatments that may help these individuals with their symptoms include:
A key factor in these individuals’ recovery is their access to high-quality medical care, their support system, and their attitude toward recovery.
