In addition to the expenses of treatment such as medicine, rehabilitation and surgery, there may be additional medical costs when a brain injury leads to complications. The most severe would be a coma, which an individual could be in for a few days, weeks or even longer.
Other complications that can lead to additional costs from a brain injury include:
- nerve damage;
- sensory/communication/cognitive problems;
- infections; and
- changes with emotions/behavior.
