The cost to treat a traumatic brain injury can be significant, going into the thousands or even hundreds of thousands. Those costs will only increase if the brain injury leads to disabilities.
Some of the disabilities that can result from a traumatic brain injury include:
- cognition difficulties (reasoning, thinking, memory);
- mental health/behavior changes (aggression, personality changes, social difficulties, anxiety, depression);
- interruptions in sensory processing (touch, taste, smell, sight and hearing);
- coma; and
- vegetative state.
The reality is that the long-term costs of a traumatic brain injury can leave a victim and/or their family feeling overwhelmed and stressed. Dealing with the injury itself is difficult enough without adding the financial implications to it. This is why you should speak with a brain injury attorney in Georgia as soon as possible. An attorney can explain if you have a valid claim worth pursuing.
