Oklahoma residents who have been injured in car accidents know how difficult it can be to completely recover from the incident. The emotional trauma can have an impact that can last for years, as can any physical trauma. The long and difficult recovery of Tracy Morgan, the famous comedian, illustrates how hard it can be to fully recover from a serious injury sustained in an accident.
Mr. Morgan was involved in a very serious car accident almost a year ago, during which he sustained a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Immediately following the accident, it was not known how long it would take for him to recover or if he would be able to regain some semblance of his old life. While he still has a hard road of rehabilitation ahead, he has been able to make some remarkable strides.
Brain injury experts say that it is very common for TBI victims to have memory loss and difficulty perceiving the tone and context of conversations. This is in addition to some of the physical difficulties that they may face. One car accident can have a serious impact on a victim and family for years to come. Although experts believe that therapy can help, it can be very costly and burdensome.
When an Oklahoma resident sustains a TBI in a car accident, it is important to seek medical care immediately. Even a concussion can have serious complications, and victims deserve a complete physical recovery. Working with a knowledgeable lawyer can help a victim and family achieve a financial recovery as well. No one who has sustained a serious injury because of the actions of another person should suffer alone.
