It can all happen in an instant. A catastrophic incident that changes lives- a car or motorcycle wreck, an accident in the home or a fall can leave the injured person and his or her loved ones emotionally, physically and financially strained.
Brainline lists several people’s accounts of a family member who suffered a brain injury. One parent stated, “I am exhausted. We can’t count on anything anymore. Nothing has been the same since the accident.” This statement really encompasses what it’s like for families after a life-changing accident or injury. Everything changes and leaves the injured party and his or her family members exhausted.
After something like a brain injury occurs within a family, the family members may have to learn how to communicate once again with the injured loved one. In some cases they may even have to come to terms with knowing they won’t be able to communicate again. This could very well result in therapy sessions for family members, which can be costly.
Perhaps someone gets into a very bad car or motorcycle accident at the fault of someone else which results in broken bones or even amputation. After something to that degree, there’s sure to be physical therapy sessions and hospital visits in the months or even years to come. Additionally, the injured person may not be able to work for a while or even ever again, which puts strenuous financial tension on a family.
