It Was an Accident. Why Would You Want to File a Lawsuit?
June 15, 2019
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:
The loss of fine motor skills
Difficulty interpreting sensory information
A lack of reading comprehension
Struggles with social interactions
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.
