One of the most devastating injuries to suffer in a Peachtree City truck accident is a traumatic brain injury. Not only because of the physical and psychological damage that often accompanies the serious condition, but the financial strain it can put on a family.

When your severe injuries are caused by the negligence of another, compensation may be available and an attorney, at the Law Offices of Shane Smith, can help.

The cost of treating a traumatic brain injury will depend on how significant the damage is. A mild injury can run in the thousands. A moderate injury may be in the hundreds of thousands and a severe injury could cost a couple of million or greater.

Much of this depends on the type of care and treatment that will be required and for how long it will be needed. The most significant costs are attributed to rehabilitative or acute care, as it is estimated that over a lifetime it can average out to 1 million dollars. Surgery can also increase the cost and many times it will require physical therapy afterwards, which is another additional expense.

Not only are you dealing with the high medical costs but the victim will likely be unable to work. This means no money coming in while the bills add up; however, recovery of medical costs and lost earnings may be available if your big rig wreck was the result of someone else’s negligence.

Other types of compensation may also be available which can address pain and suffering, disability, reduced quality of life and more.
