Traumatic Brain Injury Claims Must Factor in Lifetime Compensation
Few injuries can be as permanently devastating for victims and their families as traumatic brain injuries (TBIs). The effects of TBIs can be extremely hard to predict, as some victims may initially present with few symptoms but worsen over time. Other victims may recover some or all function, while others experience no change from their initial symptoms.
However, a large percentage of TBI victims suffer some degree of permanent disability or challenges related to their injuries. Whether it’s cognitive changes, personality changes, or fine-motor skill changes, TBIs can dramatically impact victims’ lives for the worse. They may be unable to work, and their relationships with their families and friends may suffer.
In addition to these changes, victims also may need care for the rest of their lives. Whether it’s in-house care for severe TBIs or frequent specialist visits for moderate TBIs, victims often need professional assistance to manage their conditions and to regain function.
The cost of a TBI can be enormous, especially when it makes a victim unable to work. Many law firms build TBI claims the same way they do other claims—to get quick paydays. But at Skolrood Law Firm, we work hard to ensure our clients get maximum compensation for all the costs of their injuries, both today and many years in the future.
