The brain acts as the body’s information processing centre, controlling everything from memory to behaviour to mood. When it’s damaged, a person’s entire life can be irrevocably altered. The road to recovery is long, difficult and taxing on the individual and their family; worst of all, what waits at the end of the road is never entirely clear. The only sure thing is that the victim will likely require a comprehensive lifelong support system.
The initial aftermath of a traumatic brain injury is devastating for everyone affected. But after the initial shock subsides, the victim and their family need to prepare for the long-term challenges. A lifetime of rehabilitation and in-home care are just two of the costly support services that may be required, so it’s critical that the victim is fairly compensated, not just for immediate needs, but for those that exist and arise in the years and decades to follow.
In order to establish an accurate account of the events surrounding a client’s injury, a lawyer has to meticulously compile, manage and analyse a broad range of documents and reports. Obtaining valuable long-term supports requires an understanding of the intricate workings of the brain, as well as an ability to work with medical experts and interpret their findings.
Because the long-term effects of these injuries vary widely, it is crucial that victims are well looked after and prepared for all eventualities.
