Can you recover lost income after suffering a brain injury?

Car accidents can leave victims with varying types of injuries, all ranging in severity. Some of the most common types of car accident injuries, though initially diagnosed as minor, can have a profound and lasting impact on a person. In some cases, a Pennsylvania victim could be left with significant medical expenses and even lost income from missed work. 

A brain injury is a type of trauma that can have a serious impact, even though it is a common occurrence after a car accident. These type of injuries cover a wide range, with symptoms that include memory loss and headaches. No matter the diagnosed severity of the injury, victims could be facing a recovery that lasts for months or even longer. A long recovery could compromise a person’s ability to drive to work and perform certain tasks, both of which could result in time off from work and lost wages.

Car accident injuries, even when considered to be minor, can have a snowball effect on a victim’s finances. Medical bills cannot be paid if a person cannot work, and a person cannot work if a brain injury prevents that individual from performing his or her job. No matter the type of brain trauma suffered, Pennsylvania car accident victims may have valid grounds to take legal action against those parties believed responsible.

It is especially frustrating and overwhelming when a person is unable to work after an accident. Fortunately, those who suffered because of the negligence or reckless actions of another person have solid grounds to seek financial compensation. A successful personal injury claim can recover monetary losses, such as lost income, and provide a person with the support that he or she needs to move forward.
