The Effect Of Education On TBI

Reviewing the records of 769 patients who suffered brain injury severe enough to require both hospitalization and rehabilitation, researchers at Johns Hopkins stumbled upon something remarkable – patients with a higher level of education seem to recover more rapidly from TBI. In this study, researchers found that within one year of sustaining TBI, 36 percent of patients who had a college degree were free of any disability – compared to only 10 percent of patients who had never finished high school.

The authors of this study believe education strengthens the brain in the same way exercise strengthens the body. They speculate that people with higher levels of education are better able to work around damaged parts of the brain, though more research is needed to know for certain.

Recovering from Brian Injury

The emergency care, hospitalization, and rehabilitative services required to recover from TBI often cost hundreds of thousands of dollars over a lifetime. When your TBI is the result of someone else’s negligence, you have a right to seek compensation for those and other types of damages.
