A brain injury can significantly impact a person’s life. If you suffered a brain injury in an accident, you may be facing weeks, months, or a lifetime of medical treatment and rehabilitation. Even once you have made as full a recovery as possible, you may still have disabilities caused by your brain injury that interfere with your personal and professional life.

When Can You File a Personal Injury Claim After a Traumatic Brain Injury?
If you sustained a traumatic brain injury in an accident caused by someone else, you may be entitled to file a personal injury claim to recover compensation for the losses you suffered. In a personal injury case, you need to be able to show that your accident resulted from someone’s negligence, recklessness, or other wrongdoing. For example, if you were hit by a negligent driver or fell and hit your head due to a dangerous condition of somebody else’s property, you can seek financial recovery for your medical expenses, missed wages, and other losses.

Demanding Compensation for a Traumatic Brain Injury
A traumatic brain injury may require months of treatment, potentially followed by a lifetime of personal care. As a result, accident victims deserve full compensation for a TBI. That includes financial recovery for expenses and losses such as:
- Medical treatment expenses, including hospital stays, surgeries, visits with specialists, therapy and rehabilitation, prescriptions, and medical or mobility equipment
- Long-term care facilities
- Loss of earnings from missed work, or lost future income if your brain injury results in permanent disabilities that prevent you from returning to your old job
- Emotional trauma and physical pain from the accident and your injury
- Loss of enjoyment or quality of life due to reduced life expectancy or due to disabilities interfering with your ability to perform daily tasks or participate in activities you previously enjoyed
