What Compensation Is Available for Brain Injury Victims?

by Staff Blogger | April 19th, 2018

Brain injuries affect entire families, and their repercussions can be felt for decades. People who suffer traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) may lose some or all of their independence, and they may need frequent or constant assistance from family members or caregivers.

In addition to requiring expensive medical care, rehabilitation, and living assistance, TBI victims also may lose their ability to work. That means their loved ones often face financial struggles, as they may find it difficult to balance the costs of losing an income while needing to hire nurses or reduce their own working hours to act as caregivers.

At Skolrood Law Firm, our Roanoke brain injury lawyers want to help victims and their families get compensation for everything they’ve gone through, including:

  • Medical bills—The medical costs associated with TBIs can feel overwhelming and never-ending. Patients often require lifelong care, and they may need around-the-clock help.
  • Lost wages—TBIs often disrupt or eliminate the possibility of working and succeeding in a job or career. That means victims and their families may lose out on decades of income and earnings.
  • Pain and suffering—TBIs have complications that are painful for both victims and their families. Changes in personality and cognition can change family dynamics and create challenging circumstances for everyone.

We know TBIs, and we know what it takes to win. Call today for a free consultation.
