As you concentrate on your physical recovery you may wonder if it is worth putting forth the effort to pursue a financial recovery after a crash on I-435 leaves you with a significant brain injury. It is a good question.
Here’s Why it Is Important to Pursue a Financial Recovery
You’ve already lost so much. Whatever was “normal” to you prior to your accident has been changed. You’ve lost some control over your life as you deal with your brain injury treatment and the limitations imposed by your injury.
A financial recovery, however, can help you regain control. It can help you define your own future by:
- Allowing you to get intensive therapies at the Rehabilitation Institute of KC, or via another provider. The type, the amount, and the quality of rehabilitation therapies that you receive after your brain injury can have a significant impact on your recovery. Even with good health insurance, you may benefit from therapies that your insurance doesn’t cover. A financial recovery can help you pay for these treatments.
- Providing the money you need to pay your bills now and in the future. You, and your family, should not have to suffer a change in your standard of living because of someone else’s negligence on I-435. A financial recovery can help you recover lost income and continue to live in the manner to which you are accustomed.
In other words, a financial recovery can impact your physical recovery and how your future turns out.
If you, or a loved one, are a brain injury survivor then you deserve to have all the facts. You deserve to know your options and to make the decisions that are in your best interests.
