When we think about the health and safety of ourself and our loved ones, it is a top priority. While we may do the best we can to protect ourselves and the people we love, sometimes things happen that are outside of our control. These instances can leave people with life-altering injury. If an accident has left you or a loved one with a traumatic brain injury, or TBI, there may be compensation available if it was due to a third party’s negligence.
The head and brain are soft tissues that can damaged if involved in an accident. Incidents like car accidents, work injuries and sports injuries can cause people to suffer a traumatic brain injury. These injuries can be difficult to treat or rehabilitate and can leave a resounding impact of the injured and their families. If a person or party was negligent at the time of the accident, accident compensation is a possibility.
At Lewis Lewis and Ferraro LLC, we know how stressful and confusing this period in a family’s life can be. A brain injury can affect memory, speech and concentration, preventing the person from returning to the work force. Depression, mood swings and personality changes are also common. These side-effects of TBI are not to be taken lightly. Sometimes someone’s actions or carelessness could have been the driving factor that caused a person’s TBI.
If there is even the slightest chance that a TBI sufferer could be rehabilitated back to health, wouldn’t it be best to pursue that chance? For some people, this route may feel unattainable due to the state of finances and the costs of medical care. Lost wages of the injured love one can also play a role in a family’s tough financial situation. Recover for what you have lost and for what you may need to spend in the future on a traumatic brain injury.
