How does a brain injury affect more than just the injured person? We ask Colorado attorney Tom Metier in this AskTheLawyers.com Quick Question.
A brain injury affects the entire family because our loved one, who we depend upon to have those mental skills and love and care, that's part of who we are as a family. If we have somebody who is fatigued all the time, who angers easily, who gets frustrated or who has to remove themselves to another room and sit in the quiet in the dark. Well that's disruptive to us all. Not only that, but we may not always understand as a family member that it's the brain injury that's causing those reactions and things to happen. So it's important that you and your family get counseling together to understand what's going on with your brain injured loved one and how you can support each other.
