Why Are Traumatic Brain Injuries So Expensive?

When someone suffers a traumatic brain injury (TBI), in most cases, the effects are permanent. TBI’s often result in the long term damage of brain regions responsible for motion, emotional processing and analytic thinking. As such, TBI’s are linked to Parkinson’s disease, depression, bipolar disorder and cognitive degeneration. Care for TBI victims is incredibly expensive because, though the TBI itself was momentary, the effects are for life.

For example, the longtime activist and preacher Richard Deats fell down six concrete steps in December of 2012. Now, he is wheelchair bound and completely dependent on the care of others. Family members and a home nurse take turns caring for Deats; however, the burden is becoming too much to bear. In fact, Deats has received no physical therapy because his insurance doesn’t cover it and his family cannot afford it. A recent fundraising effort raised $10,000, which is only enough for three months of home health care and physical therapy.

There is no reason why the complete financial stability of a TBI victim’s family must deteriorate after an accident. If a member of your family has suffered a traumatic brain injury and requires long term care, our traumatic brain injury lawyers can help.
