What Damages Can You Seek for Traumatic Brain injuries?

Thursday, January 12, 2017

If you or someone you know has endured a traumatic brain injury, you may be entitled to seek damages, providing the accident was not your fault. However, unlike other accidents, many don't know exactly what damages they can seek for a brain injury.

Loss of Earning Capacity

This is typically the first sort of damages that should be sought after a brain injury. It has been found that those who suffered a brain injury often retire up to 15 years sooner because they typically have trouble focusing, controlling anger, retaining key memories, and suffering from fatigue. Taking that into consideration, you may be able to receive damages because you had to take a lower paying position and your working years may have been cut short.

Life Care Damages

If you have suffered a traumatic brain injury, there are a number of costs that come with the injury. This includes physical therapy, medications, surgery, and time spent in the hospital. If the injury was not your fault, you should not be left with these bills.

Pain and Suffering

Pain and suffering can be difficult to calculate, as can its close cousin loss of enjoyment of life. In some court districts, experts on pain and suffering aren't even allowed to testify, but when they are, they present a number of economic statistics that prove that your quality of life has been diminished by a certain percentage.

If you or someone you love has been a victim of a brain injury, don't go after damages alone. With a good personal injury attorney, you can get so much more and we can assure that you win. Contact us today to see what potential for a case you have.
