Whether it be an auto accident, fall, sports-related incident, or some other cause, brain injuries can lead to astronomical expenses. The cost of a closed head injury cannot be measured by hospital bills alone. People with even Mild TBIs often require medication, therapy, vocational training, and adaptive strategies. All of these items come at a cost for individuals and families living in South Carolina. In addition, if a TBI victim cannot return to their former job, they may be faced with the loss of thousands or even millions of dollars over their lifetime.
The law cannot heal anyone medically, but it can compensate people for the harm caused by another party's negligence or recklessness. More than 60,000 South Carolinians are currently facing disability due to brain injury. If you or a loved one is one of those people, please know that you are not alone. There are a number of organizations dedicated to helping you. Likewise, the law as well as my firm are on your side.
We are here to guide people with TBIs toward justice while ensuring that all costs - past, present, and future - associated with the head injury are covered by the at-fault party's insurance company. Let us help with the legal issues so that you may focus on recovery. For free copies of my books and a free consultation, call my Columbia office today at (803) 790-2800.
