Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyer

Did you know that there are over 1,000,000 traumatic brain injuries in the United States each year? Some estimates are up to 2,300,000. While many of these are mild concussions with a quick and easy recovery, many are serious enough to be treated by a doctor.

Of those treated by a doctor, many have prolonged and even lifelong problems. That number ranges from 50,000 to 100,000 each year.

The Injury

One day you are crossing the lobby to check out of your hotel when suddenly you slip and fall. One of those hard case metal suitcases was left in the lobby. You hit your head and suffer a concussion serious enough to take you to the emergency room. Your treatment may become expensive and long-lasting.

Or a friend of yours is driving his daughter to school one morning. His car is t-boned by a careless driver. Even with seatbelts on, he and his daughter both are sent to the emergency room. One of the injuries that both suffer is a brain injury.

It can happen to you or a loved one through no fault of your own.

Hospital Costs

You probably know how expensive a hospital stay is today. Your initial care in the emergency room and a hospital stay could run up into six figures quickly. And that is the beginning.

Rehabilitation Costs

Your rehabilitation costs might end after a few months but they also could last for the rest of your life. TBI rehabilitation is a complex process bringing in several medical specialists. You may be treated in the hospital, in a residential rehab facility, as an outpatient, or home health care.

The cost of care will far outstrip the capacity of most American families to pay for it.

Loss of Income and More

The actual medical costs can be the start of your losses. You may not be able to work or to work at the level that you once did. Your family members may lose income by helping in your care. Family members and you may need counseling that is not free or inexpensive.

The sum of your losses can reach into the millions.
