Individuals who have suffered from a traumatic brain injury have more than enough to deal with in their day to day lives, their medical care and overall financial situation should not be added to their issues. Traumatic brain injuries rarely occur without someone being at fault and the responsible party should be providing financial support to the afflicted party.
A traumatic brain injury is typically a life-altering event. It can permanently alter the sufferer’s personality and it can also lead to a lifelong handicap. Medical expenses for a brain injury of this sort may continue to accrue throughout the rest of the person’s life, depending on the overall severity of the issue. Family members may also experience a complete shift of their lives due to the injury, as it is common for at least one person to become a caregiver to the afflicted person.
According to the CDC, 1.7 million people per year sustain a traumatic brain injury in the United States. Of these, 275,000 people will have an extended hospital stay and 52,000 will die. This amounts to a staggering number of bills for those with the injury, along with the added devastation for the families of those who don’t survive.
