Any injury can change a person’s life but traumatic brain injuries are especially likely to impact a person forever. This is because the injuries are often permanent and the victims can experience a variety of symptoms that makes it impossible or extremely difficult to live their lives in the way they used to.
At The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker we have worked with many clients dealing with brain injuries and other catastrophic injuries. We fight tirelessly for the rights of those who have suffered these life changing injuries. Whether you were the one who was physically impacted, or you are the loved one of a person who lost their life due to a brain injury, you can contact The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker at 800-333-0000 to learn more about the three main types of compensation you could be eligible for.
- Medical Costs
- Lost Wages
- Pain and Suffering
It is all too common for a person who has suffered a brain injury to assume that medical costs only covers the bills they have received and paid. This is false. While it does cover past medical costs, it also covers future anticipated medical costs associated with the injury. Will you need future surgeries? Ongoing rehab? Do you need ongoing medical care or supervision? If so, that should be covered.
Likewise, if you need modifications to your home due to your medical condition, then that should be covered. If you need a new vehicle that can handle a wheelchair, that can be covered. If you need to install a ramp at your home, that should be covered as well.
Traumatic brain injuries can affect a person’s ability to work in several ways. They can lead to cognitive issues that make it hard to handle any type of mental workload. Second, TBIs can affect a person’s fine motor skills, which can prevent them from being able to perform routine tasks at any job. If you have suffered from either of these issues, your TBI has left you unable to work for an unrelated reason, then you may be able to collect compensation for lost wages and lost earning capacity.
There is no question about it, TBIs can change the way a person lives their life and make every day difficult. If you are in constant pain, can no longer take part in what you used to love, and your enjoyment of life is impacted, then you may be eligible for compensation for these damages. If you are limited in the way you can spend time with loved ones, especially on a physical level, there may be compensation available for you.
