How Are Economic Damages Determined in a Brain Injury Lawsuit?

The effects of sustaining a traumatic brain injury (TBI) can live with you for the rest of your life. Depending on the severity of your TBI, you may require ongoing treatment and therapy. Besides, traumatic brain injuries might limit your ability to work and live.

If your TBI is attributable to someone’s unlawful or negligent actions, you may be entitled to financial restitution for the resulting economic and non-economic damages. However, the compensation you are entitled to will depend on the specifics of your case.

So how is brain injury settlement determined?

The compensation you are entitled to following your traumatic brain injury will be determined by a number of factors. Here are some of them:

The severity of your traumatic brain injury

Depending on the severity of your injury, you may exhibit mild to moderate TBI symptoms. Some of these symptoms may include persistent headaches and/or migraines, loss of sensory functions, memory and speech problems and nausea and fatigue. For an accurate diagnosis, your doctor might perform X-rays as well as MRI tests.

The nature of the treatments you need now and in the future

Your medical treatment will largely depend on the nature of your brain injury. For instance, if you develop blood clots in the brain, then you may need surgery to remove the clots and relieve the pressure in your skull.

Your recovery plan may also include rehabilitative services like speech and muscle therapy, the use of moving aids like a wheelchair and prescription medication. All these will be taken into account when awarding damages.

A traumatic brain injury can turn your life upside down. Find out how you can pursue damages if you or someone you love sustains traumatic brain injuries due to another party’s reckless actions.
