How Much Does A TBI Really Cost?

An injury can be stressful emotionally, physically and financially. More severe injuries often require a longer recovery time and more resources to aid in recovery efforts. As such, recovery could end up costing victims and their families millions of dollars — a financial burden they shouldn't have to bear if someone else's negligence is the reason for their catastrophic injury.

At Ryan, Ryan & Landa, we understand the impact of catastrophic injuries such as injuries to the head, back, neck and spine because we've handled numerous personal injury cases over the years. We know what's at stake if victims don't recover the full and fair compensation they deserve, which is why we take pride in fighting for accident victims in Waukegan, Chicago and throughout Illinois.

Financial Impacts Of Brain Injuries

Traumatic brain injuries greatly impact the life of an injured individual and their family. Recovery can take time and resources, and can be financially burdensome. Victims are often unable to work due to their injury, and in some cases, it may be impossible to return to life as it was. Financial impacts often associated with traumatic brain injuries include:

  • Lost wages
  • Prescription costs
  • Hospital bills
  • Multiple surgeries
  • Medical equipment — including wheelchairs and in-home electronic medical devices
  • Child care
  • Rehabilitation and therapy treatments
  • Long-term care

In some cases, a victim may need to make significant changes to their residence to accommodate a wheel chair or eliminate slip hazards. This could include major, costly renovations.

Traumatic brain injury cases could cost victims millions of dollars over the course of their lifetime, which is why understanding the full cost of a TBI is so important. Only a lawyer with extensive experience handling a wide range of personal injury cases has the ability to fully identify costs and help a victim and their family recover what they need from insurers.
