Veterans who experience a traumatic brain injury may be eligible to participate in the VA traumatic brain injury program. This program puts injured veterans in touch with the care they need when they’ve experienced a traumatic brain injury.
The experts and facilities open to veterans include local offices, regional facilities, and assisted care facilities where veterans have access to full time medical staff. One aspect of the program is that individuals who have a need for a highly specialized medical professional or treatment can be transported to the area of the country where they can access treatment.
The program includes all of the costs associated with the medical needs of the veteran and ancillary costs such as transportation, mental health needs, and equipment. There are a total of five facilities nationwide, in addition to a support network with locations in every state.
An Atlanta personal injury attorney can provide more information about this program, as well as your legal rights after suffering a traumatic brain injury.
