Traumatic brain injuries are a major cause of death and disability in the United States. Brain injuries can result from a wide variety of accidents, and often these “invisible” injuries can have long-lasting impacts on the lives of victims and their families.

Any bump, blow, or jolt to the head can disrupt the normal function of the brain, leading to immediate symptoms or delayed symptoms that may not appear for days, weeks, or event months.

Medical Treatment

Following an accident, it is important to have a medical professional evaluate the brain injury quickly.  Since brain injuries are not always outwardly apparent, it is necessary that you have medical evidence to support your legal claim.

Doctors may perform a variety of imaging scans to show what has happened to the brain, as well as perform a neuropsychological assessment to determine the severity of the damage. If your doctor does not perform any imaging tests, you may request them. Such documentation and evidence will be necessary in advancing your case.

Damages

Proving the extent of the patient’s needs is one of the key factors in reaching a successful outcome for these cases. The extent of losses is highly personalized in brain injury cases and, as such, it is essential that victims fully address both the short-term and long-term consequences of their injury. Often, compensation is necessary for:

  • Past and future medical bills
  • Lost income
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Permanent disability
  • Loss of enjoyment of life

The medical expenses surrounding brain injuries can be extensive and long-lasting, depending on the severity of the injury. Often, such injuries can impair thinking, memory, and movement, or result in emotional changes. When considering damages, take into account past and future needs, including physical therapy, speech therapy, counseling, support groups, caretaker costs, and long-term medication expenses.
