Compensation for TBI in California
Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are devastating to both victims and their caregivers. Brain injuries, even when mild, often require compensation for the following:
- Medical Treatment – hospitalization, brain injury rehabilitation programs, in home care, and ongoing neurological care
- Depression & Anxiety Care – ongoing care with psychologists and psychiatrists
- Loss of Earning Capacity – when a person has lost the ability to perform their job due to a brain injury
- Lost Wages – wages lost during the time the brain injured person could not work
- Loss of Ability to Provide Household Services – recovery for the reasonable value of services the brain injured person provided to his or her household prior to injury
- Physical Pain & Mental Suffering – including emotional distress, inconvenience, loss of enjoyment of life, grief, anxiety, humiliation.
When you are involved in an accident in which head trauma has occurred, it is important to consult with an attorney even if you have not yet been diagnosed with a traumatic brain injury. Mild and moderate brain injuries, including concussions or injuries in which you did not lose consciousness, can take weeks or even months to become apparent. If you rush to settlement in your case, you could miss your opportunity to obtain the compensation you need to get the treatment you deserve.
In addition to the significant medical expenses associated with traumatic brain injuries, potential damages also include lost wages and lost earning capacity as many victims are unable to return to their current jobs and may be unable to continue working in general. Our San Diego brain injury attorneys look at the totality of the damages you will incur and we aggressively pursue maximum compensation.
