Dealing with the aftermath of a loved one suffering a traumatic brain injury in San Jose can be an extraordinary challenge, yet not one that is insurmountable if you are prepared for it. You just need to know what to expect in regards to their physical and cognitive limitations. Many come to us here at Shea & Shea immediate following their loved ones suffering a TBI wondering how they might now what their long-term prognosis may be. You can quickly develop a general expectation if you know your loved one's Glasgow Coma Scale score.
A mention of "traumatic brain injury" might prompt most San Jose residents to conjure up images of people in a vegetative or comatose state. That may be because the inclusion of "traumatic" in this term seemingly implies catastrophic results. In reality, many are able to recover from TBIs without experiencing many (or any) of the long-term physical issues one might associate with them. Yet there may be problems that remain that are much more difficult to spot, as they may only manifest themselves as one who has suffered a TBI attempts to resume their normal life.
