Millions Recovered For Injured People

What are the true costs associated with a brain injury?

The physical, financial and emotional costs of brain injuries suffered in car accidents are unquestionably high, but just how high are they? The total annual cost of brain injuries in the United States is estimated at $48.3 billion. The total cost of hospitalizations related to brain injuries is estimated at $31.7 billion in the U.S. annually.

In addition, the estimated costs of acute care and rehabilitative care for brain injury victims in the U.S. is $9 to $10 billion each year. Brain injuries cost victims, families, communities and society as a whole in lost productivity, lost wages and in social services costs. The costs can range depending on if the brain injury is mild, moderate or severe. A mild head injury can cost $85,000; a moderate head injury can cost $941,000; and a severe brain injury can cost $3 million.

Victims of brain injuries suffered in car accidents can suffer physical injuries, emotional trauma and significant financial losses and costs. A personal injury claim for damages may help them address some of those concerns by helping them recover medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering damages from a negligent driver responsible for their crash. The cost of treating a brain injury over the victim's lifetime can range from $600,000 to $1.875 million, which is why victims and their families may need help and should be familiar with their options.

A brain injury can have a long-lasting impact on the victim and can change their daily lives in an instant. As a result, personal injury legal resources and remedies are available to help them through with their physical, financial and emotional damages.
