The multiple effects of a traumatic brain injury

by | Aug 23, 2021 | Motor Vehicle Accidents |

Most people don’t think about car accidents until they experience one. If you have never been in a crash, you probably do not realize why some people fight so hard to receive compensation for their injuries.

Many crashes result in long-term, debilitating effects. For example, you may not understand the potential costs involved with treating a traumatic brain injury (TBI). However, given the amount of medical attention a TBI might require, your symptoms could require significant treatment, potentially for the rest of your life.

A wide range of common TBI symptoms

Some TBIs are mild, requiring short-term treatment. However, more severe TBIs can result in permanent disabilities.

A sudden jolt or blow to the head could cause you to suffer from:

  • Double vision
  • The loss of fine motor skills
  • Difficulty interpreting sensory information
  • A lack of reading comprehension
  • Struggles with social interactions
  • Paralysis

The cost of your rehabilitation will vary, depending on the severity of your brain injury.

How much does TBI treatment cost?

It is impossible to attach a price to the physical and emotional effects of a brain injury. However, serious injuries often result in financial strain. Throughout the United States, TBIs carry an estimated cost greater than $48 billion. And the projected lifetime costs of caring for someone with a TBI can reach nearly $2 million.

If you get seriously injured in a motor vehicle accident, you may require compensation above and beyond the immediate medical and vehicle damages offered through an insurance payout. You also deserve compensation for the emotional and quality-of-life damages you and your family will face for the rest of your life. This is where a personal injury lawyer can be so valuable. They can help you to hold the negligent driver accountable and obtain the financial support to put your life back together.
