Delaware’s Injury And Medical Malpractice Leaders

Brain injuries result in extensive expensive treament

Delaware residents may experience traumatic physical injuries as a result of any type of accident, forever changing a person's life. Brain injuries can especially be life-changing, often making it difficult for victims to regain basic life functions. Unfortunately when injuries occur, victims not only struggle to heal, but they may face financial burdens to finance necessary medical treatment.

Recently, a young man and his mother in a nearby state approached their state legislature to explain the impact a brain injury has had on his life. At the age of 18, the young man was involved in a serious car accident that resulted in a brain injury. Their goal was to advocate for continued state funds for their state Medicaid program. 

The mother and son spent their time with the legislature explaining the long journey of healing that he encountered. After his injury, he required brain surgery, followed by weeks in intensive care and months in a rehabilitation facility. As his brain healed, he had to relearn very basic life functions such as breathing, walking and talking. Basic expenses also added up such as transportation costs for follow-up care with physicians. The mother explained that without the Medicaid program they would not have been able to afford the expenses his care required.

Brain injuries can occur to any Delaware resident at any time. As with the man's situation, necessary medical treatment expenses can accumulate quickly, and unfortunately not everyone may be covered by government programs or have the finances to pay for them. In some instances, another person's negligent actions may have resulted in the accident, and he or she can be held legally responsible. An experienced personal injury attorney can advise victims of their rights and options to pursue compensation from negligent parties to help relieve any financial burden.
