Brain Injury Awareness Month

March 2013 is Brain Injury Awareness Month. The Brain Injury Association of America is promoting this opportunity to recognize the risks and consequences of a brain injury. Its slogan for this year's event is "Brain Injury: Anytime, Anywhere, Anyone - Brain injuries do not discriminate."

This slogan is particularly accurate when it comes to the parents of newborn infants who suffered a brain injury during delivery. For these families, this year's Brain Injury Awareness Month is an important time to learn about the implications of a child's injuries. As the BIA says in its promotional materials, "you can't plan for a brain injury, but once it happens, you need to know where to go for help."

Because every individual's brain is unique in complex and nuanced ways, "no two brain injuries are exactly alike." This makes care and rehabilitative treatment particularly expensive. The average cost of a day or outpatient therapy treatment program ranges between $600 and $1000.

Most families are not prepared to shoulder costs like this to provide high-quality treatment and care. In many cases, an experienced medical malpractice lawyer can help families determine whether or not a doctor's negligence is responsible for an injury. If this is the case, the family may be entitled to compensation to help cover the costs of moving forward after a brain injury.
