Brain injuries can be hard to cope with, especially financially

| Jun 30, 2017 | Brain Injuries

Brain injuries are difficult injuries to live with. This is true for the person who has the injury, as well as the people who have to help care for the person. Even children of the victim might suffer due to the effects of the brain injury. We know that this is a very difficult time for you and your family members.

There are a lot of different ways that a brain injury can impact your life. One way is that you might not be able to communicate in the way you used to. Instead, you might find that it is difficult to come up with the words that you need. You might have trouble understanding what other people are saying. This can make it hard for your family members to cope with having to try to figure out what you need and how to express what they need.

It is also hard for families to cope with the financial impacts of the injury. You will likely have a lot of doctor appointments and possibly therapy appointments. All of these cost money, which can put a stress on your family members, even if you have insurance because you likely have co-pays that you have to make.

If you are unable to work, this adds another layer of pressure to the situation. We can help you learn about whether you can seek compensation for the damages. If the accident was caused by recklessness or negligence, such as in a car crash, you might be able to exercise this option to try to recover some of the financial losses.
