The Basics Of Pursuing Compensation For a Traumatic Brain Injury

Posted on

When someone else’s negligence has left you or a loved one with a life-changing, traumatic brain injury (TBI), you have the right to seek compensation. Victims of traumatic brain injuries are left with life-changing consequences. Even victims suffering from minor concussions can face long-term issues. When pursuing compensation for a brain injury, keep in mind that insurance companies will fight against your case; they understand that it will involve substantial damages and hope to limit liability for your claim. Seeking an experienced personal injury attorney in complex cases involving head injuries is in your best interest. It can increase the potential value of your claim. When you work with one of our expert attorneys at Schultz & Myers, they will determine the type of compensation you may be entitled to by examining all the areas you have been affected, including the severity of your brain injury.

Here are the types of damages available in a TBI Case:

  • Medical expenses
  • Loss of income
  • Reduced earning capacity
  • Disfigurement
  • Pain and suffering
  • Rehabilitation
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Medication
  • Loss of general enjoyment of life

You need to seek medical attention as soon as possible after an accident. If you delay treatment or fail to follow the medical treatment plan you’re prescribed, the insurance company might argue that your actions contributed to the severity of your injury and reduce the value of your claim. Following doctor’s orders is the best way to protect your rights and receive the compensation you deserve after a traumatic brain injury.
