When you or a loved one sustains a traumatic brain injury (TBI), there are 3 stages of treatment. The first stage, which is known as acute treatment, focuses on saving the individual’s life and then stabilizing them.

The next step for a TBI is subacute treatment. This stage of treatment includes the bulk of work you and doctors will have to put forth to aid in recovery. This means you may be out of work for an extended period of time, perhaps permanently. Since this may mean a substantial loss of income, you may decide to file an injury claim with the help of a Virginia personal injury lawyer to account for these losses, so you can focus on recovery.

At this point, doctors work to detect possible complications, identify your level of neurological functioning and set a treatment plan to help you regain as many abilities as possible.

Some of the complications detected in subacute treatment include: 

  • bed sores;
  • infection;
  • muscle contractions; and
  • fluid buildup in the brain. 

Doctors also work to prevent injuries that may result from imbalance, poor coordination, weakness or cognitive impairments, which are commonly associated with a TBI.

During subacute treatment, doctors will prescribe rehabilitation and/or therapy. Depending on the severity of the TBI, during subacute treatment, you or your loved one may be required to re-learn basic skills all over again.
