Q I was in a North Carolina accident and suffered a traumatic brain injury. Will I ever be able to drive again?
Yes, you may. About half of moderate-to-severe brain injury survivors will get back behind the wheel and operate a motor vehicle again. Driving may not be the same experience for the accident survivor. Vehicle modifications and special devices may be necessary in order for brain injury victims to assimilate back into safe driving. Those costs should not be the accident victim's burden if they were hurt by another party's negligence. This is one example why it is so important to consult an attorney about a brain injury case in North Carolina - there may be extra expenses associated with an injury that victims and their family members don't realize right away. Our injury lawyers in Raleigh review the questions brain injury victims should ask a doctor if they want to drive again.
