The Cost of Treating Traumatic Brain Injuries

Cost of Treating Traumatic Brain Injuries in Houston

At the Hollingsworth Law Firm, our Houston personal injury attorneys join the Brain Injury Association of America in observing Brain Injury Awareness Month in March each year.

Last year alone, traumatic brain injuries (TBI) were responsible for 223,135 hospitalizations and 64,362 across the country, according to the Centers for Disease Control. These catastrophic injuries often lead to a long road to recovery, and ongoing medical care, including physical therapy and rehabilitation, impaired motor function, memory loss, or permanent disabilities.

Because of the nature of care required for TBIs, there are often costly medical bills and the possibility of reduced earnings that can change the physical, emotional, and financial well-being of sufferers everywhere.

Unfortunately, the expanding number of traumatic brain injuries that occur in the U.S. are often caused by negligent actions or inaction of others, which means they could have been prevented. Here, we explore some of the consequences our clients experience after these accidents, and how we can help them pursue the recovery options necessary to move forward with confidence.

Common Accidents that Lead to Long and Short-Term Consequences of TBIs

The effects of mild, moderate, or severe TBIs can last anywhere from a few days to weeks, months, or a lifetime, depending on the severity of the injury.

Common causes of traumatic brain injuries include, but are not limited to:

The consequences of these accidents and resulting traumatic brain injuries can lead to:

  • Inability to Organize Thoughts and Ideas
  • Altered Judgment
  • Trouble Communicating
  • Depression
  • Lack of Attention or Concentration
  • Changes in Self-Esteem
  • Lack of Awareness or Self-Control
  • Memory Trouble
  • Lack of Problem-Solving Abilities
  • Mood Swings
  • Outbursts
  • Mobility Problems
  • Nerve Damage
  • Risky Behavior
  • Seizures
  • Vision Impairment

The costs of TBI injury treatment can be staggering. The lifetime costs of a patient’s treatment for a traumatic brain injury are estimated to run from $85,000 to $3 million, according to a study published by Northwestern University.
