Victims of brain injuries often sustain lasting, sometimes, life-long injury and disability. While some victims are able to make a full recovery, it is not uncommon for some brain injury victims to need in-home care for the remainder of their lives. At David Shapiro Law, PLLC, we are here to help if you need a Mesa brain injury lawyer by your side. Our team has the resources necessary to fully investigate how the incident occurred, determine liability, and secure complete compensation on behalf of brain injury victims and their families.
An experienced brain injury attorney can help in many ways. First, an attorney can devote the sometimes significant resources needed to build a strong case and prove liability. This can include uncovering video surveillance of the incident, statements from eyewitnesses, accident reports, and more.
Additionally, an attorney will ensure that their client is evaluated by trusted medical and economic professionals who can fully assess the situation and properly predict the estimated costs a victim will incur. When an attorney has a clear picture of the cause of the incident and the total expected losses, they will negotiate vigorously with insurance carriers and at-fault parties to obtain a fair settlement on behalf of their client. They will also not hesitate to take a case to trial if necessary.
The unfortunate reality of brain injuries is that they can lead to permanent injuries for victims. This means that properly predicting the total losses a victim and their family will incur as a result of the injury can be challenging.
When we look at data available from the Family Caregiver Alliance and the Brain Injury Association of America, we see that brain injury victims and their family members can expect lifetime medical costs reaching as much as $4 million. These costs are broken down into a range of needs that victims and their families may have, including ongoing medical bills, physical therapy and rehabilitation, in-home medical care, construction to a house to aid with mobility, and more.
Data shows that just the first round of physical therapy after a person has left the hospital after sustaining a brain injury can reach as much as $850 to $2,500 a day.
Additionally, family members of brain injury victims could undergo significant life changes of their own. This could include the need to take time away from work or leave a job altogether to become a permanent caregiver. This can also place a significant financial strain on injury victims and their families.
This data illuminates just how important a recovery is in brain injury cases. If your attorney does not fully understand the extent of your injuries and how much treatment and care will cost in the future, you and your family may not receive compensation that is adequate to cover these costs.
