Injury Attorneys | Restoring LivesTM
A recent article from Bloomberg News took an in-depth look at a truck accident that resulted in the death of one woman and serious injuries to her two teenage sons. One of her sons sustained fractures to the pelvis and eye socket from which he ultimately recovered. Her other son, whose skull was crushed, suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI).
The long-term effects of his TBI are numerous and include the following:
It’s unclear how much he’ll be able to further recover. With constant care, he has shown improvements in the years since the accident occurred but will likely always have some disabilities or impairments in functioning.
The costs of a brain injury are often numerous and can extend well beyond the initial medical treatments, which in this case included surgeries, long hospital stays, and a period of time spent in a medically-induced coma. Brain injuries negatively impact people’s quality of life as well as their academic and work prospects. The long-term effects also include costly lifestyle changes.
