What is Traumatic Brain Injury?

Traumatic brain injury cases can occur in different ways. An acquired brain injury can occur when an external force impacts the brain, like in a car accident. The severity of traumatic brain injuries, head trauma and other serious injuries depends on the mechanism that caused the brain injury.

These traumatic brain injuries can be caused by auto accidents, falls, assaults, sports activities, or other mechanisms of impact. Although the level of severity may vary, any brain injury should be taken extremely seriously as the brain is essentially the most important organ in the human body and immediate medical care should be sought.

Sometimes people don’t realize the long-term effects right away. It can be very difficult to assess the full extent of the brain injury at first, or they don’t see the proper specialists for a while. They may not realize that their serious injuries are more involved than just a headache or a concussion. In such situations, the injured person may not realize why they’re having certain changes or difficulties in their life until later.

How Are Brain Injury Claims Determined?

In determining the value of a severe brain injury claim, various factors must be considered including: establishing the basis for the at-fault party’s liability, the nature and extent of the brain injury, including future prognosis of the serious injury and necessity of further treatment or physical therapy, and the existence of and the amount of applicable insurance coverage that may or may not be in effect to cover the loss.

  • Medical bills incurred including but are not limited to: emergency room bills, ambulance bills, doctor bills, x-ray bills, MRI bills, CT-scan bills, cost of other brain injury diagnostic studies, neurologist bills, surgery costs, including the surgeon’s charges and the facility’s charges, and physical therapy bills.

Am I Entitled To Compensation For My Brain Injury, Or One Suffered By A Family Member?

People who have suffered brain injuries can be entitled to compensation by showing that their injuries were caused due to wrongful and/or negligent conduct of someone else. If that is the case, compensation may be awarded for their medical bills, lost wages and the cost of future medical treatment.

Lost earnings may also be compensable, as well as future lost earnings or impaired earning capacity. Any pain and suffering, grief, lost wages and anxiety related to the brain injuries suffered in the incident or event could also be compensated in the form of money damages.

The injured person’s spouse can also seek to recover loss of consortium damages, which is measured by looking at the harm caused on the marital relationship due to the injuries suffered by the injured person.

Of course, if the person dies from a head injury or brain injury then that could be a wrongful death case. In a wrongful death case, the appropriate surviving family member or members can bring an action for the loss of the society, affection, and companionship of the deceased. Essentially, the measure of damages after a serious injury is determined by looking at the relationship that they no longer have with the deceased person who suffered death due to the wrongful action of some other person or party.

How Much Money Is A Traumatic Brain Injury Case Typically Worth?

Every traumatic brain injury case is different. It depends on the damages and injuries to that particular person. It also depends on who the brain injury claim is being made against, how deep their pockets are as far as how much insurance coverage they have, or if they’re a company or person with assets.

The greater the brain injury caused to the injured person, the greater the potential value of his or her brain injury case. This is because the greater the harm, the greater the loss. From day one of our free consultation, we focus on the particular person by looking at what harms and losses they have sustained. Of course, in every brain injury case, you have to prove that the other party or person is legally responsible is the cause of the harm and losses.

A Recent Review:

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ I was in an accident where my car was totaled. At first, I thought I could handle things by myself but then my pain began to get much worse. I hired Allen based on the recommendation of a friend and he did not disappoint. He was very fast in answering my calls and emails. He also got me the maximum settlement from the other person’s insurance and then got me compensation from my insurance too. – James
