The Devastating Effects Of A Brain Injury
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is caused by excessive force to the head, which may occur in a car accident, motorcycle accident or other type of accident. The effects of a brain injury vary from person to person but are always debilitating to some degree. Serious brain injuries may make it difficult or impossible to function socially or perform job duties. A TBI may cause changes to behavior, mood and cognition. In severe cases, the person may be in a coma or succumb to their injuries.
The Damages You May Be Entitled To Recover
When someone has suffered a brain injury in an accident caused by another person’s or party’s negligence (in an auto accident, for example), the victim and/or their family may be eligible for significant compensation. Our lawyers can evaluate your case and help you determine an appropriate course of legal action. When we handle your personal injury claim, we will seek compensation for:
- Hospital bills
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Long-term care
- Loss of enjoyment of life
You and your family may also recover compensation for other damages as appropriate such as the personal loss of a loved one (loss of consortium), loss of companionship, the value of the future income the injured person would have earned and loss of the services they provided to the household. In wrongful death cases, you may recover the cost of funeral and burial services. When we review your claim, we will tell you what to expect in terms of the types of compensation you may be able to recover.
