Suffering a serious brain injury often leads to lifelong challenges and struggles that require ongoing medical care and treatment. Depending on the location of the injury in the brain, treatment might include one or more types of therapy to regain lost functions such as cognitive abilities, speech, and senses. Brain injury victims often struggle to find gainful employment, if they can even work at all. Additionally, continued medical expenses pile up and place extra financial stress on households, especially when a brain injury victim contributed to the household income before the injury.
