We all dread someone we love being injured in an accident, but little prepares us for the absolute worst that can happen. While no one wants to see their loved one lost as a result of an accident sometimes when a loved one lives through a catastrophic injury we wonder if death wouldn’t have been more merciful. For those who are left behind with only a shell of their loved one that has lost all but their life as a result of a closed head injury each day can be a battle. A battle for both the permanently disabled loved one as well as those left with the mighty responsibility to provide full time care. It’s in these very instances that one may need the help of a brain injury attorney to speak for those who are no longer capable of speaking for themselves.
For many who leave the house one night and are involved in a catastrophic accident that results in their suffering a closed head injury, often resulting in anything from paraplegic results, to fully mentally incapacitated. For either result it places incredible responsibility and strife on the family. Taking in the instances of paraplegic victims, just the cost of a mouth operated wheel chair can be tens of thousands of dollars. Typical hospital stays for those with closed head injuries that result in complete paralysis are in a hospital setting from a minimum of three months to a length of up to two years. These mighty physical strains are only a part of the heavy load placed upon the families shoulders. Incredible financial strain is instantly heaped upon these unsuspecting families. Without the successful prosecution of the responsible parties by a competent brain injury attorney these families can have no way to provide the intensely expensive and comprehensive medical care these victims need, not only immediately, but continuously.
So the accident that resulted in the closed head injury occurring is often the least of the problems that will follow the victim and their families for years to come. Without the assistance of the brain injury attorney who pursues financial means with which the injured party can exist, these families overnight become instantly bankrupt. And it’s a financial burden that does not lessen over time. The complete care necessary for even the slightest bit of recovery to occur can be after tens of thousands, even upwards of hundreds of thousands of dollars.
No family should have to sell everything they own in order to just provide the most basic care for their incapacitated loved one. Little could be more important than the work of a brain injury attorney working to provide the justice to these families that are in such dire need.
