Each year, more than 50,000 people die from traumatic brain injuries in the U.S. and thousands more suffer life-long complications from their injuries. In addition to physical limitations and emotional pain, brain injury patients often suffer financial hardships as a result of expensive treatments and rehabilitation costs as well as lost wages from an inability to work.
If you or someone you love has suffered a traumatic brain injury as a result of another’s negligence or a defective product, you may be entitled to financial compensation. While a financial recovery may not be able to reverse the damage that has been done, it can help ensure that you receive the highest quality of care.
