There is no average settlement for a traumatic brain injury case. Though law firms sometimes publish their settlements, there is no comprehensive record of results that would allow for a verified “average” settlement figure. Each case is different, and the settlement you could receive will depend on the details of your case.
Your lawyer will not need an average settlement figure to determine the proper value of your settlement. They will rely on the facts of your case and the monetary cost of your damages to calculate a fair settlement amount.
What does a Settlement for a Traumatic Brain Injury Cover?
Even though traumatic brain injuries can present similar symptoms in different victims, each injury can affect the patient’s life differently. Our team will review your case and identify all of your losses, which may include:
Pain and Suffering
Every injury causes some degree of pain and suffering. The pain and suffering can be severe in those with a brain injury, as trauma affecting your brain may:
- Change your personality
- Impair your cognitive function
- Affect your memory
- Cause depression and frequent bad moods
- Interfere with your sleep
- Cause significant pain
- Diminish your quality of life
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) notes that brain injuries can be abnormally costly from a healthcare perspective. The cost of your injury-related healthcare may depend on the severity of your injury and the duration of your symptoms.
Medical care for your brain injury may include:
- Observation in the emergency department
- Medical imaging
- At-home care
- Medical equipment such as a wheelchair
- Neurological testing
- Any other medical services you require for treatment or healing
These services can become expensive. Our team will work to ensure that you receive a fair settlement that covers healthcare expenses for your traumatic brain injury.
A brain injury will interfere with most types of work, whether you work behind a desk or in a labor-intensive field. Your inability to work may cause:
- Complete or partial loss of income
- Reduced earning power, as you may have to scale back your hours or change positions because of your brain injury
- Inability to earn promotions or performance bonuses
- Loss of benefits that are tied to your performance
- Loss of productivity and fulfillment
You may have losses in addition to those listed, and our team can seek fair compensation for those losses. If you suffered a brain injury in a car accident, for example, you may need temporary transportation and repairs for your vehicle. Other circumstances may cause different types of losses.
We fight for the financial settlement our clients deserve, regardless of how their brain injury happened.
