Does someone with a brain injury have the right to make decisions about his financial affairs or health care?
Depending on how severely the person’s thought processes are impaired, he may be able to make some or all of his own decisions, or he may sign a Power of Attorney, giving someone else authority to handle his affairs. If this situation arises, medical and legal advice should be sought so all rights and obligations can be properly considered.
