Motorcycle Accident Brain Injury Attorneys in Austin
A traumatic brain injury can completely alter a person's life forever. Not only is the person left with extensive physical and emotional trauma from which he or she may never recover, but also severe financial burdens. Unfortunately, those who suffer permanent damage are often not able to carry on with life as they did before the accident. Some traumatic brain injury victims may not be able to perform the most basic everyday activities such as walking, talking, or eating.
If your brain injury was caused by the negligence or wrongdoing of another, then, you can seek compensation for your significant losses.

Motorcycle accidents often result in head trauma regardless of whether you wear a helmet. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), head injuries are the leading cause of death in motorcycle accidents. Those who choose not to wear a helmet while riding a motorcycle are exposed to a higher risk – they are 40 percent more likely to suffer a traumatic brain injury in an accident.
It can be challenging to estimate precisely how much a brain injury will cost because it varies for each individual depending on the nature and extent of the injuries and brain damage suffered. Sometimes, the brain damage may be irreversible and the victim may need lifelong treatment and care. Some need medical equipment such as oxygen tanks and special wheelchairs. Others may need round-the-clock nursing care. Some victims may also need physical and occupational therapy to help rehabilitate and reintegrate them into the community. These costs can add up very quickly.
A brain injury could cost several million dollars over a person's lifetime. An experienced personal injury lawyer will be needed to calculate damages accurately. Medical expenses; lost wages; hospitalization costs; continuing treatment and rehabilitation costs; lost future income; loss of livelihood; loss of life's enjoyment; disabilities; permanent injuries; and past and future pain and suffering, must all be included in a personal injury claim.
Recovery from a catastrophic injury such as a traumatic brain injury can be a long and arduous journey not only for the victim, but also for his or her family members and loved ones who are trying to provide care, assistance, and support.
