Earning Compensation for a Traumatic Brain Injury


Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) can diminish a person’s quality of life, as well as place a burden of care on loved ones when the injuries are particularly severe. What used to be regular, everyday functions become quite difficult, and cognitive/motor abilities may be impaired or significantly reduced for some time to come. If you’ve suffered a TBI due to the malice or negligence of another entity, you may be entitled to compensation for lost wages, pain, and suffering, and emotional distress and loss of consortium may be claimed for your spouse.

While brain injury cases are highly valuable, the expenses for their litigation may also be substantial. However, our experienced attorneys understand that the average accident-victim is not prepared to work with accident-reconstruction specialists, “damage assessment experts,” and locating and speaking with witnesses; as such, contingency fees are not paid unless your case is won.

If you’ve suffered a TBI, you need an attorney who will reach a settlement that brings lasting financial stability rather than simply a short-term gain. For example, an attorney who is not fully committed may earn a $200,000 settlement for a client who was earning $35,000 per year; this may sound rather high, but after deducting $60,000 for attorneys’ fees and $40,000 for medical bills, the client is left with half. This may still seem substantial, but only until ongoing medical treatment and/or therapy, along with a high deductible or even a cap on payments, quickly begins to drain what is left, especially if the client can no longer work at the same job and must then file a disability claim.

Experienced personal injury attorneys are well aware of complications that may arise in the future, and will dedicate themselves to understanding the full extent of your TBI and how it has affected your life in order to earn compensation.
