Traumatic Brain Injury Costs May Exceed Disability Coverage Alone

The unfortunate truth is that the fixed income provided by disability may not even be enough to cover all your needs after a traumatic brain injury. 

This is often a major concern if you require at-home accommodation, round-the-clock care, or expensive occupational or physical therapy. Because of the serious nature of a brain injury, it’s also possible you could need additional medical care in the future, such as follow-up surgery.

People living with brain injuries also frequently encounter challenges when attempting to resume employment, for instance, resulting in a significant loss of income. 

If your bills are piling up after a negligent driver or property owner caused your TBI, you shouldn’t be left on the hook for all the costs. An attorney should be a part of the recovery process to help you pursue the fair compensation you deserve.

The good news is that a skilled Virginia traumatic brain injury attorney can: 

  • Determine who’s liable for your damages, such as a driver, business or homeowner, employer, trucking company, and other entities.
  • Gather the evidence necessary to pursue damages through a personal injury lawsuit, such as medical records, video footage, witness statements, and so on.
  • Negotiate with insurance and help you avoid common tactics used by insurers to reduce your settlement.
  • Place a specific value on your traumatic brain injury accident damages covering elements like lost income, medical costs, and pain and suffering.
  • Take the pressure off by handling the legal side of your recovery within the tight deadlines set by state and federal law.
