Compensation can cover self-pay costs after a brain injury

On Behalf of | Jun 3, 2016 | Brain Injury

All traumatic brain injuries can have a negative impact on a person’s life. For a person who is in daily agony from the injury, life can be unenjoyable. Learning ways to cope with the effects of the brain injury can usually help the person to feel better about what they are going through. In some cases, the person will need special therapy sessions and devices to assist him or her with even the daily care needs that the rest of us do without much thought.

One issue that a person might face after a TBI is that he or she has a lack of income at a time when his or her expenses are increasing. The medical care, personal care assistance, devices to help with daily activities and other help that is needed after a TBI are costly. Insurance coverage might help with some of the costs, but there are often some aspects of care that must be handled through a self-pay option.

It is possible for people who were in an accident to seek compensation for a TBI if the accident was the fault of another party. This can be because of negligence or recklessness of another person. Determining who should be held liable for the accident is imperative. This information is the basis for determining who is listed as a defendant in the civil claim for compensation.
