Lifelong Expenses Must Be Accounted for in Brain Injury Claims
Although many types of accidents and injuries have the potential to cause victims a lifetime of pain, suffering, disability, and expenses, traumatic brain injuries are often in a class of their own—especially when it comes to medical costs. People who suffer traumatic brain injuries may become profoundly disabled and require live-in medical care for the rest of their lives.
The cost of this care can be financially devastating at best and outright unreachable at worst. The burden of caring for a person with a serious traumatic brain injury can then fall on family members who usually lack the training, experience, and ability to give them the care they need. In turn, their health and wellbeing may dramatically suffer and their lifespans may be significantly shortened.
At Skolrood Law Firm, we look at all aspects of TBIs to determine exactly how much they’ll cost victims and their loved ones. And when TBIs result in permanent disability and loss of independence, we push hard to get victims and their families maximum compensation. Insurance companies often balk because of how much money we demand, but we refuse to let TBI victims be “paid off” with lowball settlements that run out in a matter of years or months.
If you or someone you love suffered a TBI because of someone else’s negligence, you deserve every penny you’re owed—especially if your TBI is expected to impact the rest of your or your loved one’s life. Contact our Roanoke brain injury lawyers today for a free consultation.
