Even the most traumatic and damaging events rarely leave an injured person in New Jersey without hope. Hope is the driving force that makes people believe that they can meet even the most formidable challenges.
A man who fought back hard against severe trauma provides an example.His catastrophic injury was the result of a traffic accident when a truck cut him offandsen this SUV rolling and his body flying on to the roadway. He sustained a traumatic brain injury,which is why doctors prepared his family for the worst news possible he would either die or be in a vegetative state the rest of his life.
Fortunately, with the help of a new therapy, he proved doctors wrong. From regaining consciousness to using a wheelchair to walking with a cane, his progress has been remarkable with the help of hyperbaric chamber therapy.
On top of the physical therapy most TBI victims go through, he was put into a chamber therapy with 100 percent pure oxygen to stimulate cell repair. The higher pressure allows lungs to gather more oxygen, which helps victims regain motor function. The therapy is used to treat 14 different conditions, including diabetic wounds and carbon monoxide poisoning.
In time, many more TBI victims should be able to get such cutting-edge treatment but for now many must live with limited results from therapy.
Any catastrophic injury, even if it has a good outcome like this one, requires continuous treatment and medication. Brain and spinal injuries are probably the worst. If the injuries result from the negligence of others, however, compensation may be possible through a personal injury suit filed by the victim or on the victim’s behalf.
