If you’ve been injured by one of the hundreds of accidents caused by drunk drivers each year, you may be suffering from a serious traumatic brain injury (TBI), which can cause complex medical conditions that may reverberate throughout an entire lifetime.
Not only can the ramifications of a TBI leave victims less capable of living the lives they’d hoped for, but these injuries – along with countless others that result from accidents caused by drunk drivers – can impose restrictive costs on families already reeling from the expenses of an accident and possibly a serious loss of income.
It’s estimated that a mild head injury will cost more than $85,000, which seems grossly expensive until you consider that a moderate injury will cost a victim more than $900,000 in medical expenses, and a severe injury can cost up to $3 million.
These costs don’t even factor the expenses incurred when a TBI causes long-term damage, which can range from $600,000 to $1.8 million, depending on the severity of the injury.
If you or someone you love has suffered TBI as the result of a car accident that was caused by a drunk driver, get advice from an Atlanta brain injury attorney who has specifically handled drunk driving cases because these can differ from standard personal injury cases.
