The monetary cost of living with a traumatic brain injury can be staggering. There may be medical bills, surgeries, rehabilitation costs, physical therapy, occupational therapy, medications, assistive devices such a wheelchair or orthotic devices, assistive technology, and modifications needed to the home and living environment. A traumatic brain injury may also prevent someone from being able to go back to work resulting in lost income. Finally, in addition to the economic toll a brain injury can cause to an individual and his or her family, there is also the non-economic toll that a brain injury causes- this is known as “pain and suffering”. Depending on the significance and duration of the brain injury, juries have awarded and settlements have been reached in the millions of dollars for these types of injuries.
