According to the Center for Disease Control, 1.7 million people in the U.S. sustain traumatic brain injury every year, and within that group about 52,000 die and 275,000 remain hospitalized. Thanks to advances in medicine, 1.365 million are treated and then released, but the brain injuries, unlike broken bones, can be volatile at times. Therefore, the use of real time big data analytics can help to mitigate a brain injury’s unpredictability.
Traumatic Brain Injury(TBI) are serious personal injury cases that need competent medical attention and in many instances years of physical and mental therapy to help the injured person to be productive again in life. The Insurance industry takes a very limited view in many instances to the very high costs attributable to brain injury rehabilitation. Settlements sometimes do not account for all the costs, including non-economic damages that a brain injured patient may have to incur. Loss of earnings can be steep. Life care plans which seek to devote the necessary resources for rehabilitation can cost millions of dollars. It is thus very important that the right professionals are hired by the attorney to make sure that the injured party receives the compensation necessary for the injured individual to reach an acceptable recovery.
