How Much Is A Traumatic Brain Injury Case Worth?

Brain injuries can be treated with minimal medical care or with significant medical help depending on the severity of the injury. It is possible to seek compensation for damages if your brain injury was caused by someone else's negligence. Regardless of the degree of the injury, if damages (such as medical expenses) exist, then it may be possible to file and win a lawsuit.

Dedicated to helping victims of brain injuries, our team of brain injury attorneys employs a mix of experience and legal knowledge for engaging in complex brain injury cases, along with the tireless effort we will give to get you the compensation you deserve. Our firm has experience handling both wrongful death and personal injury cases and has the knowledge and skill necessary to bring either type to a successful conclusion.

Some of the compensation we have achieved for injury victims has included:

  • Health care costs
  • Loss of income (current and potential)
  • Home health care services
  • Rehab costs
  • Anguish and suffering
  • Many others

Your brain injury case's value is determined by the circumstances of your accident. For this reason, it's not valuable to try to estimate the value of a brain injury lawsuit before it is thoroughly litigated.

What Constitutes A Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)?

In the medical field, a traumatic brain injury is the result of an event that causes significant damage to the brain. They can be mild, like a concussion, or severe, like a deep brain injury. Depending on how severe the brain injury is, a TBI may permanently paralyze a person or have an impact on their mental functions.

Those whose lives are suddenly turned upside down know how devastating such an event is; a traumatic brain injury lawyer also knows this. They also understand that:

  1. Traumatic brain injuries are typically long-term hospital patients; and, they may require extended rehabilitation time;
  2. The individual will likely require ongoing medical care for months and years to follow; and
  3. It is possible that many people who are hurt will not fully recover and may be disabled permanently or suffer medical complications as a result of their injury.

The most important thing is that an experienced brain injury lawyer is passionate and committed to fighting for the rights of injured individuals and their loved ones. Victims cannot change the past, nor can they undo the effects of their injuries, but they can use the civil justice system to get the compensation they deserve.

Can You Fully Recover From A Brain Injury

Those who have experienced a traumatic brain injury may be concerned about the future and whether they will recover fully. Other issues you may have encountered include difficulty in: 

  • Thinking
  • Remembering
  • Speaking 
  • Reading 
  • Concentrating 
  • Using parts of your body (normal motor movements)

As each person recovers differently, there is no easy way to predict how long a specific TBI will take to recover.

In spite of seeing barely any improvement after three months (or 18 months for a moderate TBI), you still have a chance of full recovery. Some research suggests that even those in minimally conscious states may recover higher cognitive functions years after a brain injury.

How Do Brain Injuries Occur?

A variety of accidents can lead to brain damage, including:

  • slip and falls
  • car crashes
  • medical negligence
  • work accidents
  • construction accidents
  • defective products
  • drowning

TBIs resulted in more than 2.5 million emergency department visits in 2014, according to the CDC. Over 800,000 of them were children, nearly 280,00 required hospitalization, and more than 56,800 resulted in death. 

Common Brain Trauma Symptoms

If you have sustained any type of head injury, you should always consult a doctor, even if you do not notice any symptoms at first. The following are signs and symptoms to watch for:

  • A lack of mental clarity or amnesia can be observed on the day of the accident resulting in the trauma.
  • You may experience difficulty walking or an unsteady gait, along with severe headaches.
  • A tendency to yawn excessively and feel sleepy.
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Heightened sensitivity to light and sound
  • Disorientation and confusion

Additionally, traumatic brain injury can cause swelling in the brain's tissues that may not appear right away. It instead may appear hours later. It is not uncommon to have symptoms similar to those described earlier, but can also include: vomiting, slurred speech, and trouble understanding what others are saying.
