It was an accident. Why would you want to file a lawsuit?

Most people do not 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.

However, there can be long-term, debilitating effects from a motor vehicle crash. 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.

There is 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 a 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 injured in a motor vehicle accident, it may be financially necessary to seek compensation. And if another driver’s negligence was to blame, you might want to hold them accountable.
