Brain injuries are among the most serious consequences of major accidents such as automobile or motorcycle crashes, sports injuries, or industrial or workplace mishaps. The term “brain injury” encompasses a wide variety of conditions, from mild concussions to damaged brain tissue from an object penetrating the skull. Symptoms of brain injuries can include headaches, confusion, nausea and dizziness, memory loss, and even personality changes. Because brain injuries often require long-term rehabilitation, sometimes in a dedicated brain-injury facility, treatment can be very expensive.
