After a person is injured, they may require substantial medical care to restore their health. However, injuries and, in some cases, even treatments may take a heavy toll on a person’s body or their behavior. As a result, a person may need help over the long term, necessitating long-term rehabilitation and various forms of therapy. This sort of specialized care can prove very expensive, however.
If you or someone you love has sustained an injury because of another person or group’s negligent or reckless actions, financial compensation may be available. To discuss how this compensation may be able to cover your treatment expenses, contact a New Braunfels injury lawyer of the Burch Law Firm today by calling 830-629-0955.
Compensation for Therapy Expenses
For many people who require surgery or types of treatment that drastically affect their body, rehabilitative therapy is often a practical requirement to restore their strength and flexibility. For those recovering from severe injuries, such as traumatic brain injuries, therapy is extremely important in rebuilding basic mental and physical functions. The following types of therapy may be covered by compensation as an injury-related expense:
- Physical therapy
- Cognitive therapy
- Occupational therapy
- Speech therapy
- Psychological and behavioral therapy
These rehabilitative processes are considered a form of treatment in many injury lawsuits, meaning that compensation may be available to cover the costs of these treatments.
Compensation from a personal injury lawsuit may be able to help you and your family recover much-needed funds to take care of expensive long-term care options.
