Therapy Options for Traumatic Brain Injury Victims
When a person sustains a traumatic brain injury, or TBI, the individual may lose a significant amount of the abilities he or she once enjoyed. For some victims of TBI, basic motor skills may no longer be possible. For others, the damage to their brain may make thinking or conceptualizing difficult. In any case, a person suffering from a traumatic brain injury may be able to benefit from different forms of therapy to specifically address his or her lost abilities.
If you or someone you love has sustained a traumatic brain injury because of another person’s thoughtless conduct, we may be able to help you with the process of filing a claim and fighting for the financial compensation you deserve.

Types of Therapy for Brain Injuries
Depending on the type of brain injury and its resulting damages, a TBI victim may require different kinds of medical treatment and recovery assistance. The following forms of therapy may be able to improve a person’s abilities and help the individual adapt to his or her resulting lifestyle changes:
- Physical therapy to improve fine motor skills, larger motions, and mobility
- Cognitive therapy to assist with thinking and conceptualizing skills
- Speech therapy to better a person’s language abilities
- Occupational therapy to improve a person’s ability to work around everyday issues resulting from the injury
These forms of therapy, often combined with surgery or drug treatments, can provide many benefits to those suffering from traumatic brain injuries. However, these therapies and treatments can be costly. Fortunately, if your injury was caused by someone else, he or she may be obligated to cover your treatment and therapy expenses.
A traumatic brain injury may leave you and your household with considerable financial burdens that can arise from treatment needs and loss of wages. However, help may be available through a personal injury lawsuit.
