What are the costs of brain injuries?

Brain injuries are a type of injury that commonly occurs in car accidents. Brain injuries can be costly to treat and can rob victims of the life they used to know. As a result, victims of traumatic brain injuries should know how a personal injury claim can help them with the costs associated with a brain injury.

When a car accident victim has suffered a brain injury, that person may be able to recover compensation from the negligent driver for their physical, financial and emotional damages, including medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering damages. Depending on the circumstances, victims of brain injuries may also be able to recover damages for lost-earning capacity and future medical care costs.

The estimated cost of brain injuries in the United States is $48.3 billion annually. The estimated cost of a brain injury varies based on the severity of the injury but ranges from $85,000 for a mild brain injury to $941,000 for a moderate brain injury, with a severe brain injury costing as much as $3 million.

Brain injuries can have an impact on a victim's relationships, their ability to care for their daily needs and their ability to maintain a job. Brain injuries can have an impact on victims, families and communities and the losses resulting from a brain injury can be significant. As a result, victims of brain injuries should be familiar with the legal remedies and resources available to help them with the overwhelming costs of a brain injury.
