Harrisburg Brain Injury Attorneys
The effects of a brain injury are both dramatic and devastating. Since the brain is the organ that regulates virtually all vital processes, damage done to any part of the brain has the potential to be life-altering for not only the injured victim but also for his family and friends, as what were once basic tasks become impossible challenges.
Even though many symptoms of a brain injury may become less intense as the healing process advances, the overall well-being of the injured party may deteriorate because they struggle to cope with the psychological consequences of trying to adapt to new life conditions. This can be a source of great frustration and emotional distress for his loved ones, and the strain on personal relationships can serve to heighten the difficulties for the brain injury victim.
