According to the CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics, catastrophic injuries are the leading cause of death for Americans, regardless of age, gender, race or economic status. Catastrophic injuries, over time, can lead to paralysis, blindness, deafness, memory loss and a host of other extreme symptoms. Symptoms may not reveal themselves immediately, making diagnosis and treatment difficult. Sufferers often require constant medical attention to ensure proper management of displayed and developing symptoms.
Medical Costs Related to Traumatic Injuries
Continual medical treatment, care and supervision may last a lifetime and can be an expensive proposition. The CDC estimates that medical costs related to a spinal injury could cost upwards of $3 million over the patient’s life. But, each patient is different, as are the costs. While the emotional needs of your family are the highest priority, you cannot afford to ignore practical concerns.
A spinal cord or traumatic brain injury lawyer can help you claim compensation for both economic and human damages, such as current and future medical care, lost wages and pain and suffering.
