Rehabilitative therapy is often needed for individuals who have experienced a serious injury such as a traumatic brain injury or spinal cord injury. Rehabilitation can be provided in an effort to assist a patient to return to their pre-accident condition or to aid in restoring as much functioning as possible for those whose condition is considered permanent.
Obtaining rehabilitative therapy after suffering a catastrophic injury is often difficult for individuals with limited income. Although there are programs that can help cover some costs for those who cannot afford needed therapies, in many of these cases a patient has to meet outlined criteria and may only obtain emergency services for their condition as opposed to quality long-term care.
Individuals who have been injured in an accident caused by the careless actions of someone else that require rehabilitative care for their recovery efforts may discuss their need for financial compensation with a personal injury lawyer. Those responsible may be liable for emergency or short-term medical care costs and expenses for long-term rehabilitation and care as well. Victims may also be entitled to damages for pain and suffering, lost income, and other losses suffered as a result of their injury.
A qualified, experienced personal injury attorney who also has knowledge about life care planning can be of great assistance helping injured accident victims assess their long-term medical requirements and other needs related to their care.
