The impact of a severe car crash can be devastating and life-changing. Indiana residents who have experienced one understand this. This is especially true if you suffered from a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Today, we will take a look at some of the long-lasting impacts that TBIs can cause.

First of all, TBIs can vary in severity. Some people may recover in weeks or months. Others may be struggling with a TBI for years. Even more may end up having to deal with them as a permanent part of life. Often times, a victim does not know how severe their TBI is until they are already in the recovery process. This process is also constantly changing based on your needs. Since the duration and intensity of help you may need can change, it is hard to estimate the financial impact of a TBI.

You can also lose money by having to miss work. If you must take time off to recover, you are not only losing money to your own cost of recovery, but you are failing to bring money in. This combination can cause you great financial trouble.

On top of the financial strain, you have to deal with changes to your mental and brain health. Many TBI sufferers also find themselves suffering from depression or anxiety. You may have to deal with memory problems. You might suffer from severe mood swings that disrupt your life.
