It was interesting to see how the fatigue levels changed over time, as it was not the same for all injuries. Those who had suffered a mild TBI saw their own fatigue levels go down as time passed. Those with a moderate TBI did not see much change, and the fatigue levels were said to be stable. Those who had severe TBIs, though, saw fatigue levels increase over time.
Some other conditions were shown to have a significant association with fatigue, including:
These were all noted at four months after the injury. Things generally stayed the same until eight months had gone by. By 12 months, there had been significant changes in work status for some of those being monitored.
This last finding is very important, as changes in work status — even if they happen long after the initial injury — could still be connected to that injury. Those who have been hurt and are seeking compensation in Arizona may want to remember that lost wages could be considered along with other compensation.
