How Long a Brain Injury Lasts Falls Into Three Different Categories

Video Transcription:
How long a brain injury lasts falls into these three time frames:

  1. About half of the people who have a traumatic brain injury will start feeling back to normal in about a month or less.
  2. 80-90% of people will get over a brain injury in about six to twelve months and be fully recovered.
  3. There is a small percentage of people who will not fully recover.

People who first have a brain injury and have the symptoms of a brain injury should go see a doctor immediately and be properly evaluated because there are things that can be done to minimize the effects of a brain injury even if the symptoms last a long time or longer than usual. This is why brain injuries need to be taken seriously.
