Traumatic Brain Injuries
Over 50 percent of reported traumatic brain injuries are caused by motor vehicle accidents. This can occur due to any force that can penetrate the skull or cause the brain to move violently inside the skull. This can have drastic consequences on the functioning of the brain and can cause mild to severe changes in cognitive function, sometimes leading to long-term disabilities.
Spinal Cord Injuries
Today, it is estimated that approximately 276,000 people in the United States face the aftermath of a spinal cord injury. Spinal cord injuries impact the brain’s ability to communicate with the body via the central nervous system. Some spinal cord injuries result in paralysis and even death. Even more minor injuries can affect a patient’s long-term quality of life and require costly medical and rehabilitative care.
The Liability of a Negligent Party
When it comes to devastating injuries such as traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries, liability rests with a negligent party. This can be another driver who caused a motor vehicle accident, a negligent property owner who allowed a danger to exist, or even a faulty product that caused the injury. When there is a case of negligence, the at-fault party is responsible for compensating an injury victim for their costs associated with that injury.
These costs can include
- Medical costs
- Any property damage associated with the accident
- Rehabilitation expenses
- Ongoing care
- Lost wages
- Diminished earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Wrongful death
The cost of care associated with catastrophic injuries can be astronomical and can be far beyond what most people would be able to afford. This can have a lifelong financial impact on both the victim and their family that they may never recover from.
