A Brain Injury may be one of the most dangerous personal harms you can suffer. They’re devastating, not just because of the physical damage to the structure of your head, but also because of potential side-effects to your mind, long-term. Sadly, a Brain Injury can lead to memory loss, cognitive impairment, and emotional and behavioral changes.
Similar to other personal injuries like Slip and Falls, or an Automobile Accident, this can permanently impact your ability to earn a living, far beyond the medical bills for the physical harm. Unfortunately, a traumatic Brain Injury can also be difficult to diagnose, recovering legal damages is almost always a complicated task, and symptoms can appear months or even years later.
Typical Brain Injury claims include:
- Lost earning potential because of cognitive impairment
- Pain and suffering from the physical damage
- Emotional distress and mental anguish from a damaged brain’s inability to cope with stress and anxiety
- Your spouse’s loss of sexual companionship, when a brain injury makes it more difficult to engage in intimate relations
