Serious Injuries can Create a Lifetime of Expenses
A collision between auto and truck or car and motorcycle can result in serious injuries such as traumatic brain injury (TBI), spinal cord injury, third-degree burns, or loss of limb. A rollover in a car accident can cause a head, neck or back injury, and the risk of severe burns from a fuel-fed fire or gas explosion is always present.
Serious injuries such as these require additional care and additional expense to deal with. There is often a lengthy period of rehabilitation and therapy, either in the hospital or in a specialty facility. Some patients find themselves in need of long-term care, either in a nursing facility or with the help of an at-home caregiver. Return visits to the hospital over the years can be expected for additional surgeries and procedures or to deal with complications which are common to a particular condition. Besides medical care, there are a host of issues that must be dealt with, including housing, transportation and the necessary modifications that may need to be made to maximize mobility and independent living. Many people also need to deal with emotional or psychological issues to adapt to their circumstances and cope on a daily basis.
