Permanent Brain Injuries
When head trauma and brain injuries are permanent, the cost of medical and future care can be staggering. Your loved one will most likely never be the same person they were before the accident. Some injuries are so serious they leave victims unable to care for themselves, even for the simplest of tasks. We can help you seek compensation for damages, including pain and suffering that you and your family have endured during this difficult time.
Cost of Care for Serious Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is an injury so severe that it can affect physical motor skills, decision-making skills, critical thinking ability and personality. In some cases, particularly in the elderly, it can even trigger the onset of dementia. The cost of care for a TBI is a tremendous burden on families and can include:
- Initial care and stabilization
- Surgical treatment
- Long-term daily care
- Loss of earning capacity/lost wages
Brain injuries are life-changing and devastating, as a loved one may never be the same. We use experts to help accurately determine a life care plan that projects the costs and care a victim will require. In some cases, a patient can be impacted emotionally due to the sudden change in their abilities. Serious depression can require psychiatric care. We work closely with accident victims and their families to handle cases quickly and effectively. If a loved one has died as a result of his or her injuries, we can file a wrongful death action on his or her behalf. Our goal is to help your family not have to worry about the financial costs of caring for a loved one and instead focus on healing and moving forward.
