Brain injuries are very serious injuries that have the potential to affect a person’s life in ways they might not realize. These injuries can cause communication issues, motor skill dysfunction and a host of other problems. In some cases, these effects can last for the rest of a person’s life.
In some cases, a brain injury is compounded by a spinal cord injury. In other cases, a person might suffer from only a spinal cord injury. There are several things that can cause a brain injury or spinal cord injury, including an accident at work or a motor vehicle accident. Sports, falls and similar accidents can also cause brain injuries.
Spinal cord injuries and brain injuries have a few things in common. One common point is that these injuries often require time off of work. This means that there likely won’t be an income coming into the home. While that income is lacking, the bills aren’t going to stop. That means that families often have great stress trying to make ends meet. We know how difficult that stress can be.
Additionally, a person who is suffering from a brain injury or a spinal cord injury will likely need to go to medical care appointments and have at least partial care in the home. Those needs, as well as the need for special assistive devices, all mean the family will incur more costs.
