How much will my brain injury cost?

Brain injuries are costly in many ways. For brain injury victims, it is important for them to understand what the physical, financial and emotional costs will be and what their true losses will amount to.

Brain injuries are one type of catastrophic injury that are not uncommon for car accident victims to suffer. When a car accident victim has suffered a traumatic brain injury, they are looking at a significant disruption to their life, which may require costly medical treatment, time away from work to recover and emotional harm. The impact of a brain injury can also be life-long. The estimated cost of a brain injury ranges from $600,000 to $1.875 million over a lifetime.

Brain injuries can be mild, moderate or severe. A mild brain injury is estimated to cost $85,000 to treat, while a moderate head injury may cost $941,000, and a severe head injury can cost $3 million to treat. The total estimated annual cost of brain injuries is $48.3 million, and $31.7 million of that is spent on hospital care for brain injury victims. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention additionally estimates the cost of acute and rehabilitative care for brain injury victims between $9 and $10 billion annually.

The costs of brain injuries are high, which is why victims need to know how they can protect themselves through a personal injury claim. A personal injury claim is a valuable resource to help injured victims suffering with brain injuries recover compensation for their physical, financial and emotional damages.
