During an early morning raid with everyone in TAC gear, the force of an explosion caused by some type of bomb, sends a sniper flying sideways and backwards into the others of the team he is with. His body is overwhelmed with pain, especially along his right side. When all is said and done, the sniper is blind in his right eye, walks with a limp and is unable to use a rifle with his right arm (at the very least).
What do I need to know? What should I research? What type of injuries would these be – that didn’t affect any other brain function or cause anything else significant? I want this person, after due grief for what he has lost (and such), to have a rather full life.
Considering I do a lot of things with medical/psychological consequences, are there any *GOOD* places out there for researching these types of things?
