The Impact of a Traumatic Brain Injury
Brain injuries are incredibly serious, and even relatively “mild”
TBIs can have long-lasting effects. In severe cases, victims will never
be able to return to the same life they once enjoyed.
TBIs and other significant head injuries can adversely impact an accident
victim’s ability to:
- Create memories
- Engage with others
- Learn or reason
- Pay attention
- See, hear, or speak
- Solve problems
- Think abstractly
- Understand language
- Walk or move
On top of this, TBI victims need extensive medical attention and ongoing
care to effectively treat their catastrophic injuries. This means multiple
doctors’ visits, ongoing rehabilitation therapy, surgeries, and,
in some cases, lifelong in-home care. This adds significant financial
strain on victims and families already struggling to cope with the physical
and emotional impacts of a TBI.
Damages in Brain Injury Cases
When another person, company, government entity, or some other party is
liable for your injuries, you can file a
personal injury claim and seek compensation for your damages. “Damages” is a legal
term used to describe any/all losses experienced by the plaintiff due
to his or her injuries.
When it comes to brain injury cases, damages are often extensive. Our firm
helps clients seek compensation for the following:
- Emergency medical treatment
- Ambulance and hospital fees
- Diagnostic testing, surgery, and other care
- Physical/cognitive rehabilitation therapy
- Future projected medical care costs
- Medications and medical equipment/devices
- Modifications to a home
- In-home care costs
- Lost income, wages, and employment benefits
- Lost earning capacity
- Future lost earnings
- Counseling services for the treatment of emotional trauma related to the injury
- Pain and suffering
- Inconvenience and lost quality of life
In rare cases, we may also be able to pursue punitive damages. Unlike the
compensatory damages listed above, punitive damages are not meant to compensate
the victim for losses but, rather, to punish the defendant for egregious
negligence and/or disregard for human life. These types of damages may
be recoverable in cases involving assault and other wrongful acts.
