Boynton Beach Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyer
According to CDC estimates, 61,000 TBI-associated deaths occurred in the U.S. in 2019, which are approximately 166 TBI-associated deaths every single day. TBI or traumatic brain injury victims suffer not only physical and mental disabilities but also significant financial challenges due to expenses for extensive or lifelong medical treatment, nursing or home care, rehabilitation, various therapies, and lost earnings.
In fact, it’s not uncommon for families to amass massive debt to pay for their loved one’s TBI-related expenses. Fortunately, the Demand The Limits Boynton Beach TBI lawyers can help you understand the legal options and rights available to your specific case and ensure that you secure fair compensation for your TBI-related losses.
What Exactly is a Traumatic Brain Injury?
A TBI affects how your brain functions. It is a top cause of significant disability and death in the U.S. The leading causes of TBIs include car accidents, slip and falls, pedestrian accidents, physical assaults, construction accidents, truck accidents, and motorcycle accidents.
The Severe Repercussions of a TBI
Depending on the severity of the TBI and the specific part of the brain that got damaged, the effects of the injury can greatly vary. Commonly, however, injured victims may face these challenges temporarily or for the rest of their lives:
- Challenges doing daily activities
- Difficulty with communicating and concentrating
- Memory problems
- Mental or psychological issues
- Loss of quality and enjoyment of life
- Physical and mental suffering and pain
- Ongoing medical expenses
- Lost earnings and earning capacity, possibly forever
The financial burdens of a traumatic brain injury can be especially challenging to manage. A 2019 study found that in-hospital TBI costs for each patient were $55,267 but could run up to $401,808. This estimate doesn’t include the lifetime treatment and care that are common for severe cases of TBI. If you consider the lifetime and future costs of TBI, the costs could run up to millions of dollars.
The combination of costly medical bills, ongoing treatment, and loss of work can be financially crippling for injured victims and their families. This is why pursuing compensation through a personal injury claim is usually a financial necessity.
You Can Recover Compensation for All Your TBI-Related Damages
When someone else’s wrongdoing or negligent acts cause a traumatic brain injury, the person or entity that caused the injury must be held accountable for the injured victim’s damages. In such cases, the injured victim must clearly show that the at-fault party’s actions contributed to or directly caused the TBI. An experienced Boynton Beach traumatic brain injury lawyer can calculate and recover all the short and long-term losses related to a TBI, including:
- Present, future, and past medical expenses
- Past and future loss of income
- Lost earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of companionship, care, society, or consortium
- Emotional distress
- Permanent disability
- Wrongful death
