I met a fellow working at a junkyard a couple years ago who had suffered a terrible brain injury. He was mostly okay but would occasionally suffer a full seizure, I thought it was good that the employer hired him anyway. The other employees got a bit of instruction on what to do if he got one of these "grand mals" at work.

He told me the cause was an accident loading an ATV onto a trailer. He didn't have a helmet on, and as he was riding up the thing flipped over backwards on him, causing a severe head injury.
This happened in a rather remote area, but amazingly there was a brain specialist convention in a nearby resort town, so he got quick emergency care by one of the top specialists in the world. He would not have lived, otherwise.

A sad, but good story at the same time.
