Brain injuries can happen anywhere—work, play, home, travel—and happen to anyone, at any age at any time. A simple fall can turn into serious brain damage. A negligent accident can cause paralysis or death. They can seem benign one day, pop up months later and cause catastrophic damage. Traumatic brain injuries can permanently alter the life of the victim and their loved ones. If you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury you know what this means. You’ve been to the hospital, you’ve talked to the medical professionals—you know how serious the injuries are. Brain injuries are one of the leading causes of physical and psychological disability in the United States. More than 5, 000,000 are suffering right now… suffering from some kind of disabling, life-altering traumatic brain injury. Suffering in their own private hells at home. Suffering from never-ending medical bills. Suffering from the knowledge that they will never, ever get better. Fortunately, some of those that have suffered negligent brain injuries have gotten help. They have taken their cases to experienced, professional brain injury personal injury legal aide. If you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury due to another’s negligence, carelessness or willful actions (violence), one of the skilled personal injury lawyers can help you get the financial compensation you deserve to various expenses related to the injury. As you may know, financial obligations start to pile up the longer the brain injury affects you and your loved ones. Medical bills. Lost work. Home care. Therapy. Loss of lifestyle. If anyone has been through a traumatic brain injury (TBI,) they understand the physical, financial and emotional toll. Negligent head, spine and brain injuries can cause permanent physical, cranial and central nervous system damage and affect the victim’s life forever. When Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords survived a point-blank gunshot wound to the head, the nation got a new understanding of how devastating TBI’s can be. Nearly three months after she injured, Giffords is enjoying a healthy rehabilitation, where, according to her doctors, she is receiving first class physical, cognitive and speech rehabilitation. Unfortunately, many victims of TBI get nowhere near this level of medical care or attention from their insurance companies. The fine print in many health plans excludes coverage of certain types or even complete rehabilitation for thousands of patients with traumatic brain injuries, or TBIs. For these victims, the result of being under-insured is either improper medical treatment or complete financial devastation. If you or a loved one has suffered a TBI, the best way to avoid the worst is to have the legal assistance to investigate the injury.
