WHAT TYPE OF DAMAGES CAN BE RECOVERED IN A BRAIN INJURY CLAIM?
Brain injuries require the urgent need for experienced and comprehensive legal help. After a head injury or traumatic brain injury (TBI), you or your loved one may need compensation for:
- Current and future medical expenses
- Lost income, as well as compensation for temporary or permanent loss of income or diminished earning capacity
- Temporary or permanent in-home care by a nurse or other medical care professional
- Pain and suffering and decreased quality of life
TOP CAUSES OF BRAIN INJURIES
Traumatic brain injuries can result from a sudden impact to the head, or as a result of sudden acceleration or deceleration of the brain. TBI can range from concussions and mild or moderate injuries with little to no loss of consciousness to severe brain injuries that result in a longer loss of consciousness and severe, sometimes debilitating outcomes. While the nature and impact of brain injuries may range from case to case and from victim to victim, they often occur as the result of several common forms of accidents, including:
Car accidents are among the leading causes of brain injuries, as collisions can cause drivers and passengers to hit their heads on various parts of the vehicle. Additionally, car accidents can also result in brain injuries even if victims do not hit their heads.
The sudden force of a collision, such as a rear-end accident, can cause a vehicle occupant’s head to rapidly accelerate forward and backward, causing it to move within the skull. This force can result in brain injuries, including concussions. All types of auto accidents, including truck accidents and motorcycle accidents, have the potential to cause brain injuries.
Falls are another common cause of traumatic brain injuries, and they can have devastating outcomes. While slip and fall accidents on relatively even surfaces may cause someone to hit their head, falls from heights are more likely to result in brain injuries. This is especially true of construction accidents, where employees may be performing work from heights and later fall. Falls are one of the leading causes of serious injury and death in the construction industry.
Brain injuries have gained notoriety for their impact on athletes, especially those that participate in contact sports. If you follow the news, you have likely heard about the recent NFL concussion settlement, in which league officials recognized that concussions and repetitive trauma to the head can lead to debilitating degenerative neurological conditions, including Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s disease, and dementia. Brain injuries are also common in hockey, soccer, basketball, and many other sports.
