Why Brain Injury litigation requires unique expertise
According to the National Center for Injury Prevention, 1.5 million Americans sustain a brain injury each year, and almost 500,000 of those injured are children, who are most susceptible to injury. Brain injuries are often caused by the fault of others and most often happen through automobile or motorcycle collisions, surgical error, playground, or on-the-job accidents.
Sustaining even a small brain injury can drastically alter one’s way of life. The physical and emotional effects a victim may suffer can make working impossible, and even day-to-day activities which were easily performed before the accident may seem impossible. Not only does a brain injury affect the victim, but the victim’s family may also suffer psychologically, emotionally, and financially, especially in cases where the victim is the family’s breadwinner and is no longer able to function as before. Depending on the seriousness of the injury, initial medical costs may include surgery, prescriptions, physical therapy, or even in-home nursing care. These bills can create a huge financial burden and would be difficult for even a working family to pay, let alone a victim who is no longer capable of employment.
