The consequences of a brain injury can affect your entire life

On Behalf of | Sep 13, 2019 | Firm News, personal injury |

We hope you or a loved one never suffers a personal injury severe enough to cause traumatic brain injury. The consequences of such an injury can affect the lives of victims for weeks, months, years or forever. In many cases, victims can expect long term treatment, costing many thousands of dollars. Our lawyers know that most North Carolina residents do not have enough money to pay for treatment on a long term basis.

When a personal injury affecting the brain occurs due to negligence, victims may have a chance to seek compensation from the responsible party. As you might expect, this compensation can provide the funds needed to manage a brain injury. Without compensation, victims typically cannot pay for necessary medical care or cover expensive changes to their lifestyles in the wake of the injury.

For example, severe brain injuries can leave victims in a semi-conscious state and without the ability to perform even the most basic self-care activities. This means that they cannot be left alone for as long as they experience the condition. Unless you or a family member is prepared to quit your job and remain in the home, you will need a caregiver or place your loved one in an assisted living facility. Both of these options cost a massive amount of money.

We know how difficult it is to manage life when a traumatic brain injury occurs. This is why encourage victims to speak with a personal injury attorney when negligence plays a role in the injury. With the right legal guidance, you have an excellent chance of acquiring enough compensation to improve your or your injured family member’s quality of life.
