Traumatic brain injury (TBI) survivors often require complex surgeries, round-the-clock monitoring, and long-term rehabilitation to reach maximum medical improvement. The lifetime costs for these treatments can run as high as $3 million for a single patient. Victims and their families are often in need of traumatic brain injury financial assistance, but programs are both limited and scarce.
At Cardinal LifeCare Consulting, we help brain injury attorneys by creating a nursing care plan for traumatic brain injury that can be instrumental for demonstrating a patient’s medical needs and the associated costs. We also provide expert witness services from well-credentialed specialists in a wide array of medical disciplines.

How Is a Traumatic Brain Injury Treated?
It’s not uncommon for patients with traumatic brain injuries to require lifelong care. The nature of a patient’s treatment plan depends on the type and severity of the injury but may include:
- Home modifications
- Nursing care
The average combined cost of these treatments can add up quickly, ranging from around $80,000 in lifetime expenses for relatively minor TBIs to $3 million for catastrophic injuries.
What Is Traumatic Brain Injury Financial Assistance?
Funds and organizations have sprung up around the country to aid traumatic brain injury victims. However, these resources are operating on small budgets and provide limited assistance to only certain groups of people such as military veterans. In most cases, TBI patients rely on charitable donations, loans, and their health insurance plan’s features to cover the costs of treatment.
What Is a Traumatic Brain Injury Nursing Care Plan?
A traumatic brain injury nursing care plan is a comprehensive document outlining a patient’s medical diagnosis, personal information, recommended nursing interventions, explanations and justifications for the recommended nursing interventions, and the patient’s response to previous nursing interventions. The guidelines in this document are based on an in-depth assessment of the patient’s condition, the applicable standards of care, data analysis, and the latest research.
