Woman recovering from traumatic brain injury suffered in accident

An out-of-state woman who suffered severe injuries in a car accident and remained in a coma for one month is now making good progress. When she arrived at the rehabilitation unit of an out-of-state hospital around two months ago, she was unable to move her limbs. Out of all of the serious injuries that she suffered as a result of the accident, the most serious was a traumatic brain injury. When Maryland residents suffer a TBI as a result of other parties' negligence, they are typically entitled to file personal injury suits against the negligent parties.

Although she was unable to move her limbs upon her arrival, she is now walking with the help of physical therapists. Each day, she is learning to do something that, the previous day, she was unable to do. As a result of the accident and her severe injuries, she is in the process of learning how to do just about everything over again.

The woman suffered multiple injuries on Oct. 10, 2015, as a result of a car accident that occurred in Utah. She had been a passenger in a vehicle that was broadsided. In addition to her lungs being punctured and her liver lacerated, she suffered broken ribs and lost a kidney. However, the traumatic brain injury she suffered was the most severe of her injuries, and she spent around nine weeks in the hospital's intensive care unit.

When an individual in Maryland suffers head trauma resulting from an accident -- no matter how minor it may seem -- long-term health effects may result. After receiving medical attention, it may be appropriate to seek the help of an experienced personal injury attorney who is well-versed in pursuing claims related to TBIs. A successfully presented claim, based upon evidence of another party's negligence, may lead to an award of financial relief to help offset some of the financial losses typically associated with a traumatic brain injury.
