Traumatic Brain Injuries and Compensation
Different factors can contribute to a traumatic brain injury and can result from a blow to the head or a piercing injury that penetrates the brain. A head injury can cause the brain to swell and thus inhibit vital oxygen to the brain. A penetration of the brain can also inhibit oxygen flow. The effects from a traumatic brain injury can last a lifetime for the victim and their family members. Many accidents are preventable and usually are the result of reckless or negligent actions of another. A responsible party may be liable to the victims for damages that can include:
- Loss of wages and future earning capacity
- Medical expenses and cost of continuous care
- Pain and suffering
