Compensation After an Accident Involving Brain Injury
After an accident involving brain injury, you may be wondering how you are going to recover. In South Carolina, there are many options for compensation in a TBI accident, including:
- Compensation for medical treatment, therapy and ongoing care. A brain injury can be expensive to treat. After an accident, a victim may need extensive tests, treatments, and hospitalization. Brain injuries may also require long-term therapy and treatment to help a victim regain their life. A brain injury claim may include the costs of medical treatment following an accident and the costs of medical treatment in the future.
- Lost income as a result of your injury. A brain injury can disrupt your life and your job. A TBI can make work impossible in the short and long-term. An accident claim may include compensation for the wages you miss following an accident, and the wages you may lose in the future due to your injuries.
- Pain and suffering. Brain injuries can affect every aspect of a victim’s life. Physical pain, nausea, and other effects of the injury can reduce the quality of a victim’s life and disrupt their activities. Emotional and mental problems are also common in TBI cases and may lead to lasting damage to a victim’s life. In a brain injury accident claim, you may be able to obtain compensation for the pain and suffering that you experience because of a brain injury.
These and other damages may be available in your case. Our brain injury attorneys can review your case and help you determine what types of compensation may be available.
Traumatic Brain Injury Symptoms
TBI may lead to serious health problems and lasting symptoms for victims. Injuries can interfere with a person’s work and daily life, but they can also change who that person is. A brain injury can alter mood, personality, and every other aspect of a victim.
Traumatic brain injury symptoms may include:
- Blurred or impaired vision
- Impaired cognition
- Memory loss
- Chronic and persistent headaches
- Speech impediments
- Inability to concentrate
- Mood swings and personality changes
- Depression and anxiety
These symptoms and many others may arise after due to a TBI. If you’ve been involved in an accident, and you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, be sure to get a medical evaluation of your injuries as soon as possible. A medical professional can perform tests and diagnose the source of your illness.
Treatment of Brain Injuries
TBIs are complex injuries that require specialized care. After an accident, medical professionals will evaluate a brain injury and begin treatment immediately. Treatment may involve:
- Surgery. In some cases, a victim may need surgery to repair the brain. Surgeons will attempt to stop any bleeding, reduce swelling, and repair any lacerations. Brain surgery carries many risks for victims but is often essential in saving their lives.
- Therapy and rehabilitation. TBI victims will often lose the ability to perform tasks as they once did. Therapy and rehabilitation can help victims deal with their injuries and restore basic skills.
- Medication. Brain injury victims may need specialized medication to control the problems caused by the injury. Seizures, mood problems, and agitation are common with brain injury victims, and medication may help manage these symptoms.
These and other treatments are available to help brain injury victims. The specific course of treatment will depend on the type and severity of the injury.
