Bodily Injury Repercussions

For accident victims, losses are both tangible and intangible, as well as physical and emotional. They can affect your family, career, and finances. 

The most devastating types of injuries include traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, burns, and loss of a body part or sensory function. These injuries are overwhelming for the victim and their family, who must often reconcile a combination of lost wages with significant healthcare expenses. 

Traumatic brain injuries can be especially difficult for both victims and their family members. Brain injury victims may have trouble walking, communicating, or managing self-care. In-home assistance is often needed, along with ongoing therapy and remedial care. When the injury is caused by a birth accident, parents may face a lifetime of special needs requiring costly ongoing care and other services. 

Serious spinal cord injuries may also require ongoing home care and other forms of assistance. There may be need for wheelchairs and other medical equipment, physical therapy and psychological counseling, and remodeling or moving to a different home.
