After a California resident like you suffers from a head injury, you may benefit from learning about the healing process. Even mild head injuries often have complex healing processes. You may find yourself recovering from a head injury for months or even years.

Due to this, it is important to understand how head injuries affect your life. You may struggle to adapt to short-term changes. But it is the long-term impacts that you must prepare yourself for.

Symptoms of a TBI

Mayo Clinic takes a detailed look at how a traumatic brain injury (TBI) impacts your life. The reach of a TBI depends on the severity of the injury itself. Injury location is also a deciding factor at times. The more severe a TBI is, the more likely to are to suffer for years rather than months.

What are some of the symptoms associated with severe TBIs? They can include:

  • Damaged or lost short term memory
  • Changes to personality, including an increase in impulsive behavior and increased agitation
  • The inability to maintain a normal sleep schedule
  • Trouble concentrating or focusing on things

Making changes in your life after a TBI

After the initial recovery period is over, you will go into the adaptive period. You must learn to realign your life, making concessions for any changes you face. For example, concentration and memory issues often go together. You may need to come up with a new system of organization to avoid forgetting important tasks.

Certain types of therapy may also help you reorganize your life. But it is still a daunting endeavor even with support. This is why many people in your position decide to pursue compensation for damages. You may also benefit.
