Brain Injury Compensation

  • Have you suffered a brain injury as a result of an accident? Do you believe that someone else is responsible for your injury? You may be owed compensation for the pain, medical care, and other losses your head injury has caused.

    If someone else’s negligence caused the accident that left you injured, you can seek damages by filing an injury claim. You may need monetary compensation to pay for all of the costs associated with your head injury.

    Contacting an injury lawyer is a good first step toward fair compensation after suffering a head injury.

     

    What Is a Brain Injury?

    A brain injury is when your brain has suffered damage, usually caused by a forceful blow to the skull. Even a relatively minor blow to the head can cause brain damage that ranges from mild to moderate to life-threatening.

    Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) can result in significant effects for the victim, such as cognitive issues, memory loss, personality and mood changes, and balance and coordination issues.

     

    Signs of Head Trauma

    Some of the signs of brain damage that you should watch out for are as follows:

    • Slurred speech
    • Difficulty staying awake
    • Balance and coordination problems
    • Headaches and migraines
    • Nausea or vomiting
    • Memory loss
    • Drowsiness

    If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms after a blow to the head, seek immediate medical care. Then, contact a lawyer.

     

    Compensation Through an Injury Claim

    When you’ve been injured because of an accident that you didn’t cause, you can hold the at-fault party accountable by filing an injury claim. Here are some of the types of damages you could seek in a head trauma case:

    • Pain and suffering
    • Mental anguish and mental health services
    • Cognitive therapy costs
    • Missed work wages
    • Permanent disability
    • Loss of life enjoyment
    • Medical expenses related to the brain injury
