How Much is a Brain Injury Claim Worth?
The cost of a brain injury case depends on the severity of the brain injury, its side effects, and how those side effects impact the victim’s life. As mentioned, many brain injury cases can be valued in the hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars, but the amount can vary noticeably from one case to another. It is our job as your chosen Longmont brain injury attorneys to figure out how to maximize the overall value of your brain injury claim to give you the best chances of a more comfortable future without the worry of piling bills.
Damages that can be factored into a brain injury case include:
- Medical care: Emergency medical attention, hospitalization for weeks or months, brain surgeries, and prescription medicines for aftercare should all be covered by your TBI claim recovery. Future medical care should also be factored in, which is how many claims get such a large value. Permanent side effects of brain injuries call for lifelong care and all of the expenses that come with it.
- Lost wages: You could be kept from following a gainful career in your field or any field due to the impacts of a brain injury. You can sue for the income you would have made in life had you never been in the accident that hurt you. Also, you can demand wages not paid because you missed work while hospitalized or debilitated.
- Pain and suffering: General damages in a brain injury claim can be significant as well. General damage is related to harm that cannot be easily communicated through a bill, receipt, or expense. Your pain, suffering, post-traumatic stress disorder symptoms, and other intangible hardships can all be translated into a form of general damage and paid to you through a settlement or verdict award.
- Lifelong impacts: The changes to your life and lifestyle should be considered when adding your TBI damages. You might need to change your living space to accommodate a disability, for example. Or a doctor could include many lost years of life in your prognosis. Both of these circumstances and more can increase the value of your TBI claim.
How Do You Prove Liability in a TBI Case?
Proving the liability for your brain injury will depend on the type of accident you were in that caused it. Thanks to our extensive legal experience focused on catastrophic injury claims, our attorneys are capable of sorting through pieces of evidence to uncover liability in a variety of situations. If you were in an accident that was not your fault and have suffered a brain injury because of it, then we can help connect the lines and prove liability to give you a better chance at getting a recovery.
We handle TBI cases that involve all types of accidents, such as:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- And more
