A traumatic brain injury can dramatically change a victim’s life in an instant. Without our brains being in “working order,” we can’t make a living for ourselves or our families, we can’t do the things we enjoy doing, we can’t take care of our responsibilities, and we often require others to take care of even our most basic needs. Brain injuries can vary in nature. Some can be mild, and we can recover fully. Others are quite traumatic and, unfortunately, permanent. You may not be able to work in your chosen field or at all. You may need long-term rehab to learn to walk and talk again. And all the while, medical bills continue to mount along with the regular monthly bills.
When another person’s negligence causes a brain injury, the victim may be entitled to financial compensation.
