Traumatic brain injuries are life altering for both the injured and their family. Treatment for brain injuries comes in three stages:
- Emergency treatment. Immediate diagnosis and treatment of a brain injury is critical to keeping the long-term effects of the injury to a minimum. If your loved one has suffered a head injury or is exhibiting symptoms of a brain injury, they should be taken for emergency medical care.
- Intensive care treatment. Once immediate medical treatment is administered, the patient is usually admitted to a hospital’s intensive care unit (ICU) for stabilization and prevention of further medical crisis.
- Long-term care. Traumatic brain injuries almost always require some form of long-term care. Depending on the severity of the injury, this can range from rehabilitation to a supportive living facility.
Medical care for brain injuries will be expensive and long lasting. Our attorneys may be able to help you recover the compensation your family needs to support your loved one who is suffering with a brain injury.
