How Much is a Traumatic Brain Injury Worth?

Whether you were in a car accident or a construction accident and suffered a brain injury due to it, our attorneys can help you make the most of your claim. From the start of your case to its conclusion, our goal will be to maximize the value or the worth of your case. Its worth will be based on the damages you have endured because of your accident and traumatic brain injury.

In a TBI claim, damages are often:

  • Past and future medical costs
  • Past and future lost wages
  • Cost of in-home care
  • Pain and suffering
  • Permanent disability
  • Lowered enjoyment of life

What are the Three Types of TBI?

The extent of your brain injury and how it is affecting your day-to-day life will dramatically change the potential value of your TBI claim. We can consult with medical experts to get a clear understanding of your brain injury and what sort of assumed costs will be needed to alleviate its worst symptoms or help you live more comfortably.

TBIs are sorted mostly into three types based on their severity:

  • Mild (mTBI)
  • Moderate
  • Severe

However, some medical professionals have argued that the term “mild” traumatic brain injury is misleading because every brain injury has the potential to cause permanent and significant harm. For example, a concussion is usually classified as an mTBI, but all it takes is one concussion for some people to start experiencing insomnia, mood swings, memory issues, and more.

What are the Long-Term Effects of a TBI?

The value of your brain injury case will also be changed by the long-term effects of your brain injury. If your TBI causes symptoms that are expected to pass with treatment, then your claim might not be as valuable as one compared to a TBI claimant who is permanently disabled by their injury. Again, our St. Augustine brain injury attorneys will work diligently to understand your TBI, its long-term effects, and how those effects factor into the value of your claim.

Long-term effects of a traumatic brain injury can include but aren’t limited to:

  • Amnesia and memory loss
  • Uncharacteristic mood swings
  • Insomnia or oversleeping
  • Chronic pain and migraines
  • Balance issues
  • Speech impediments
  • Learning disabilities
  • Mental health difficulties

Does a TBI Get Worse Over Time?

A traumatic brain injury cannot heal in most cases. The tissues of the brain regenerate so slowly and are so complicated that the wounds of a TBI often cause more damage at a faster rate, negating the healing process. With this said, it is possible for a TBI to get worse over time, especially if there are subsequent blows to the head.

If your TBI does get worse or appears to be worsening, then you should speak to your medical provider as soon as possible for future testing and diagnoses. Our legal team can integrate those diagnoses into your claim and its value. We really do want to fight for every possible penny in your name.
