If you’ve suffered a traumatic brain injury in a car accident near Crown Center and you did not die from your accident injuries then you are technically a brain injury survivor. The accident did not kill you, but is simply continuing to live your definition of being a brain injury survivor?

What Your Life as a Brain Injury Survivor May Be Like

In the immediate aftermath of your Crown Center car accident, and likely for some time to come, your life is going to be about recovering. However, at some point the doctors will determine that you have made the maximum medical recovery that is possible given your injuries and the question will then become: now what?

What Are You Going to Do With the Rest of Your Life?

The answer to that is going to depend on:

The particular effects of your brain injury

Every brain injury is unique. Your doctor can help you understand how your injury will likely impact your future.

Your own unique goals 

You are still in control and you still get to decide what you want to do with the rest of your life. Your brain injury doesn’t have to define your goals for you.

The resources that you have

Will you have the money that you need to live on if you can’t work or earn the same salary you did prior to your accident? Will you be able to pay your medical bills? It is important to protect your financial future and possible accident settlement now.

Once you have a good understanding of these things then you can begin planning how to be the kind of brain injury survivor that you want to be.
