About Traumatic Brain Injury
Traumatic brain injuries affect more than two million people every year, resulting in over 50,000 deaths and 280,000 hospitalizations. Brain damage can be the result of blunt head trauma from a motor vehicle accident, severe fall, sports injury, or criminal attack. Other causes often include oxygen deprivation during birth or surgery.
Many brain injuries lead to significant, permanent damage. Cognitive deficits from brain trauma can range from mild to severe, and often, the full extent of injury is not immediately known. Victims may experience severe mood swings, memory problems, attention deficits, or, in extreme cases, remain unresponsive. Sometimes, the victim is unaware of the cognitive changes, and does not understand that they have suffered brain damage.
For all of these reasons, a brain injury can be devastating for family members. The victim may be unable to return to a former occupation or look after children, and there may be a need for ongoing personal care. With a permanent loss of income, it becomes increasingly difficult to deal with the growing expenses related to the accident. In difficult times like this, it is essential that victims and their loved ones do not try to face these trials alone.

In many cases, traumatic brain injuries are the result of negligence or carelessness of another party. If a drunk driver is to blame for your pain and suffering, you are entitled to pursue full compensation. If surgical error caused your injury, you may have a medical malpractice case. Even if you are partially at fault in a motorcycle or car accident, you may be entitled to collect compensation for your losses. Because physical, emotional, and financial damages in these cases are substantial, brain injury lawsuits often bring significant amounts of compensation.
Recoverable damages for brain injuries may include:
- Medical bills
- Loss of income
- Loss of future earning capacity
- Life care costs, including medical equipment, home care, medications, therapy, etc.
- Pain and suffering
- Numerous quality of life issues
