Compensation for Brain Injury Victims

A brain injury, no matter how small it may appear, is something to be taken very seriously. Due to the role that the brain plays in controlling the human body, there can be severe medical consequences for someone who has received a brain injury in a car accident. If the biggest issue of receiving medical treatment is figuring out how to pay for it, it may be time to consider contacting a personal injury attorney. Personal injury attorneys can include compensation for current and future medical treatment related to your car accident.

Also, due to the nature of treating brain injuries, the medical expenses involved can easily generate thousands - even hundreds of thousands - of dollars. No victim of a car accident should be forced to pay for receiving treatment for a wreck they did not cause, and here in the Anderson Law Firm our attorneys and legal team work hard to make sure you get the right care you deserve.

If you or someone you love has suffered a traumatic brain injury as a result of any kind of accident which wasn’t your fault – such as a truck wreck, car crash, or vicious dog attack – then it is important that you seek a free consultation with a board certified Dallas-Fort Worth personal injury lawyer. Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are extremely serious injuries, with significant financial implications. It is critical that you are fully aware of your legal rights, and that you have an experienced attorney fighting on your behalf to make sure that you receive the full and fair damages you are entitled to under Texas law.


The Long-Term Effect of Traumatic Brain Injury

Victims of traumatic brain injury are likely to experience long-lasting symptoms related to the initial or repeated impact to their head. The effects of a traumatic brain injury include cognitive, physical, emotional and behavioral disorders. Symptoms of these disorders include difficulties with attention, memory, reasoning, communication, eye problems, fatigue, lack of coordination in the arms or legs, depression, anger and anxiety. There have also been associations discovered between TBI and such diseases as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s.

As a Dallas-Fort Worth personal injury and wrongful death lawyer with experience in fighting for the rights of traumatic brain injury victims, I think that it is important for TBI victims and their immediate family members to sit down with an attorney who can discuss their personal situation in detail and help you identify all legal options available to you, as well as insurance policies available for you to claim against. No doubt you will already be aware of the enormous costs facing you in the light of your injury, for example:

  • Medical bills
  • Loss of future earnings
  • Loss of services

In addition to these expenses, Texas injury law also provides accident victims the right to claim additional compensation for intangible reasons (the pain and suffering you have endured).

The Costs Associated with Traumatic Brain Injury


According to the Brain Injury Association of America, the cost of medical treatment for people who have suffered traumatic brain injuries can be as much as $2,500 per day. The full range of figures as published on their website are as follows:

  • $ 8,000 per day in average acute rehabilitation hospital
  • $ 850 to $ 2,500 per day for post-acute care residents
  • $ 600 to $ 1,000 per day for non-residential day treatment
