Many people in Florida are injured every day. Injuries can happen in a variety of ways and the severity of the injuries can vary greatly as well. Some injuries are minor and may only cause minor inconveniences while others are very significant and can completely change a person's life. One type of injury that can completely change a person's life is a traumatic brain injury.
One young individual in Florida recently suffered a traumatic brain injury. Family members of the victim started a foundation in the victim's honor to raise money for traumatic brain injuries. One of the events they hold to raise money is 5k runs. They recently held one in south Florida and hundreds of people attended the event.
In addition to completely changing a person's life, traumatic brain injuries can be extremely costly as well. There are many medical costs associated with them for surgeries and other immediate treatment in the hospital. There can also be extensive bills for rehabilitation outside of the hospital. Thankfully, the victim may be able to obtain compensation for their injuries to help with these costs, if the accident was caused by another individual or entity.
