Recoverable Damages After a Brain Injury Accident
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), medical care costs for traumatic brain injuries can be up to tens of billions of dollars. This number doesn’t even take other financial hardships your injury has caused you into account.
Luckily, should you pursue an insurance claim or lawsuit, you can recover these costs and others so you can get the treatment you need. Some of these damages are:
These losses are measurable and affect your finances. Examples might be:
- Lost wages: if your injuries and treatment kept you from working
- Future lost earning capacity: if you cannot return to your old job and have to get a lower-paying one—or you will not be able to work again
- Medical bills: if your injuries called for surgeries, hospital stays, medication, assistive equipment, diagnostic tests, and ongoing doctor’s appointments
- Other related expenses: if you need help around the house or someone to take care of your family
These losses have affected you emotionally and physically, so they don’t hold a dollar value. That doesn’t mean you can’t be compensated for them. You can recover your:
- Pain and suffering: If your injuries are too painful for you to participate in your regular activities
- Mental anguish: If your injuries have affected your mental health and caused you to suffer from depression, anxiety, insomnia, etc.
- Scarring and disfigurement: If your injuries changed your appearance or restricted your mobility
Brain injuries can be so serious that victims might lose their life. If you lost your family member due to a brain injury, you can recoup their medical bills, pain and suffering, and funeral arrangements in addition to your own loss of companionship.
