The shock of a serious injury can bring a life and a family to a halt. Whether in a car wreck, a fall or other accident, understanding a new normal is devastating for the patient and family alike.
Severe personal injury can be disabling and end the ability to earn a livelihood. A catastrophic injury is one that changes the course of life, such as traumatic brain injury (TBI). While you may get right up after a fall, or walk away from a car accident, neurological damage may only become apparent in weeks to come.
