When a person suffers a serious injury, it will likely take an extended period of time for that individual to recover. In some instances, an injury could even result in permanent damage that leads to a party requiring medical attention or other assistance for the rest of his or her life. If a brain injury or other serious outcome results from a car accident, the injured party may be able to seek compensation.
The family of a 20-year-old man who was seriously injured in a Florida car accident may be considering options for restitution. It was reported that the man was driving when another vehicle failed to stop at a stop sign and collided with the side of the man’s car. The accident resulted in the man suffering a serious brain injury.
It was reported that the man was put into a medically induced coma due to swelling and bleeding. He is apparently coming out of the coma, but his injuries have left him unable to communicate fully. At this time, the driver of the other vehicle has not been charged, but authorities have stated that charges could result once the investigation is over and the extent of the victim’s injuries is assessed.
Because his injury was so severe, it will likely take extended time for the man to recover, and he could potentially need rehabilitation therapy. The medical bills associated with a brain injury can cause considerable burdens for the man and his family. As a result, they may wish to consider filing a personal injury claim against the parties considered responsible for the Florida accident in order to pursue compensation.
