An injury to the brain is devastating. Brain and head injuries whether minor or severe, have far reaching consequences and may permanently alter a person’s life. See Case Example.
In a brain injury case it is not uncommon for the injured person to have:
- Chronic headaches
- Changes in their personality
- Difficulty with memory
- Problems with muscle strength and organ function
- Issues with sensory functioning
Often the brain has suffered some form of traumatic brain injury, often referred to as TBI.
TBI can result from nearly any type of accident where there is trauma to the head. Common accidents that may cause TBI are accidents arising from:
- Car accidents
- Premises liability
- Slip-n-fall accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Bus accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
Losses from a brain injury often include:
- Current and future medical treatment
- Inability to work losses or inability to pursue a career
- Pain and suffering
- Quality of life loss
- Home treatment
To receive full compensation for a brain injury will often require an expert report from a neurologist and an economic loss report from an economist.
Future treatment for a brain injury patient may be ongoing and require a joint effort with:
- Occupational therapists
- Physical therapists
- Speech therapists
- Behavioral therapists
