A brain and spinal cord injury can lead to long-term effects for victims. This type of injury can cause severe physical and mental impairment that may be mitigated by certain types of therapy, or persist for the remainder of one’s lifetime.
Many brain and spinal cord injury victims require long-term medical care, and assistance in carrying out day-to-day activities. Damage to the brain or spinal cord can leave one unable to walk, speak, work, or care for themselves, which can significantly diminish a person’s quality of life. Although there are resources and support to aid survivors of traumatic brain and spinal cord injury and their families get on the path to living well, the emotional and monetary costs of treatment and rehabilitation can be overwhelming. When one is afflicted with a spinal cord injury or traumatic brain injury that has been caused by the negligence or wrongful actions of another, one may have grounds for a personal injury claim to recover medical expenses and other significant losses.
