Spouses of Odessa Car Accident Brain Injury Victims May Be Hurt, Too

Never before have your marriage vows had so much significance. When you remember the joy, excitement, and fun of your wedding day, you may barely remember uttering the words, “in sickness or in health,” “for better or for worse,” or some variant on that theme. Yet, you are a committed spouse, and your years of marriage have taught you that what affects your spouse also affects you. This may be true now more than ever.

What Happens to Your Marriage when Your Spouse Suffers a Brain Injury

Your marriage is unique, and our Kansas City accident lawyer would never be so presumptuous as to tell you what will definitely happen in your own marital relationship. However, we encourage you to think about:

  • How your daily life has changed. Are you now more a caregiver than a partner?
  • Whether you are able to work.
  • How you will be able to support your family if your spouse can’t work.
  • Whether your intimate physical and emotional relationship with your spouse has changed.

All of this matters. Of course, the extent to which any or all of these changes may apply depends on the relationship you had with your spouse prior to the accident and the severity of your spouse’s traumatic brain injury.

Come to See a Kansas City Car Accident Attorney for Help

If your spouse is able to make decisions, it is important that you both meet with an experienced Kansas City car accident lawyer as soon as possible after the accident injury so that, together, you can make the decisions that will influence your spouse’s recovery, your recovery, and your family’s future. However, if your spouse cannot make decisions, and you have the legal authority to do so, then we encourage you to contact us on your own.

For more information, please contact our Kansas City brain injury accident lawyers today via this website or by calling (816) 471- 5111 or (888) 348-2616. We also encourage you to download a FREE copy of our book, Don’t Wreck Your Injury Claim, which is available on our website.
