Traumatic brain injuries are some of the most catastrophic injuries you can suffer. In many instances, a brain injury can result in severe, lifelong disabilities that require ongoing medical care and rehabilitation. Prompt diagnosis and treatment is crucial to your ability to recover from a brain injury. For this reason, it is important to seek medical care immediately following a blow to the head.
