Traumatic brain injuries can be devastating to a person’s livelihood. Often, these tragic injuries happen due to motor vehicle accidents, assaults, sporting accidents, falls, medical malpractice, and more. These injuries are incredibly serious and expensive. In fact, a traumatic brain injury often costs a victim between $85,000 and $3 million over the course of the individual’s life after the injury. When an individual suffers a traumatic brain injury, they may be able to bring a successful personal injury case against the party that caused the accident.
In a personal injury case, the victim of a traumatic brain injury may try to recover damages some of the following expenses that may arise:
- Hospitalization, including surgeries, scans, testing, and any treatment or testing that has to take place after the initial treatment
- Psychological and psychiatric evaluations or therapy, if necessary
- Medical devices
- Modifications that may need to be made in the home to accommodate medical equipment
- Lost wages due to an inability to continue working
- Loss of earning capacity
It is also important to note that an individual can also try to recover damages for non-financial burdens such as emotional trauma, loss of enjoyment of life, loss of relationship, and more.
