Traumatic Brain Injury Attorney
Hiring a traumatic brain injury attorney can be difficult at times, but there must a realization that it may become a necessity in order to help with the care of the injured person and their family. A good personal injury law firm can help with this process. Handling a traumatic brain injury case is difficult for all those involved, including the personal injury lawyer. A good injury lawyer will be knowledgeable and aid a client in recovering for their medical bills, pain and suffering, emotional distress, lost wages, and other expenses.
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is damage to the brain caused by a sudden, violent blow to the head. The severity of traumatic brain injury can vary greatly depending on which part of the brain is affected and the amount of damage to that part of the brain. The degree of damage can range from a minor brain injury with temporary confusion and headache to major brain injury resulting in profound disability or death. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately 1.4 million people experience TBI each year in the United States and approximately 50,000 will die.
The cost of taking care of a loved one who has suffered a traumatic brain injury can be in the millions of dollars. It is estimated that over a lifetime, it can cost anywhere from $600,000 to $1,875,000 to care for a survivor of severe TBI. This is the average cost of care. Many times the cost can exceed many millions of dollars. Without a great medical plan, many families will not be able to care for a loved one. The first concern will always be the medical recovery, but the time to get legal help is also of the essence. There should be care and time used in getting the right attorney to represent the case. A good civil attorney will take the time to explain the process and will actually care about and devote time to the case.
