What Is a Traumatic Brain Injury?

According to the CDC, a traumatic brain injury is a disruption in normal brain function. A blow, a bump, or a jolt to your head can cause it. Penetrating head injuries can also cause trauma to the brain. The severity of the damage can range from mild to severe.

 

Mild brain injuries involve a temporary change in your mental state or consciousness. In the case of severe injuries, there is an extended period of unconsciousness. Patients can also suffer from memory loss and other lasting disabilities.

 

 Traumatic brain injury is a leading cause of disability and death in the United States. 

Some of the most side-effects of a traumatic brain injury include:

 

  • Cognitive: These include disruption in memory functions, experiencing difficulties in cognitive reasoning and planning.

  • Sensation: These include spatial disorientation and lack of balance.

  • Emotion: These include experiencing personality changes, depression, aggression, anxiety, and behaving in a socially inappropriate manner.

  • Language: These include trouble in communicating, understanding, and expressing.

  • Physical: These include physical side-effects such as speech impairment, vision impairment, seizures, headaches, loss of hearing, taste, smell, and partial or complete body paralysis.

 

Individuals involved in a traumatic brain injury will exhibit varying symptoms. These depend on the accident type, the areas of the brain impacted, and the force of the impact.

 

The extent of your injuries also determines the losses you can claim. Get in touch with a Rocklin traumatic brain injury lawyer at McCrary Law Firm to learn more about this.

How Much Compensation Can You Receive?

Traumatic brain injuries can have a severe impact on your life. They can cause permanent harm and compromise a victim’s cognitive capabilities, personality, and physical capacities. California personal injury law acknowledges the far-reaching effects of such injuries. It has established three compensation categories for brain injury victims. These include:

 

Economic damages

 

Economic damages consist of the financial losses you suffer due to a traumatic brain injury. They also account for future expenses due to the injury. These include:

  • Lost earnings

  • Medical bills

  • In-home care

  • Home modifications

  • Therapy and rehabilitation

  • Residence in a nursing facility

  • Medical devices and assistive equipment

  • Property damage

  • Loss of earning capacity

  • Long-term care expenses

  • Household services the victim can no longer provide

Non-Economic Damages

 

Brain injuries also result in non-financial repercussions. These are non-economic damages, which include:

  • Pain and suffering

  • Diminished quality of life

  • Emotional distress

  • Physical impairments and disability  

  • Loss of consortium and intimate relations

  • Loss of ability to have children

  • Loss of financial support the victim can no longer provide

There is no cap on the compensation you can receive for these losses.

Punitive Damages

California State Law also awards punitive damages to brain injury victims. The court awards these damages if it finds the liable party guilty of intentional misconduct, fraud, or oppression.

The purpose of punitive damages is to punish the defendant and prevent a recurrence of the incident.

The jury also considers the defendant’s financial position and any benefits derived from their conduct toward the victim. It awards these damages on top of the economic and non-economic damages you receive.

Are There Any Limitations?

Under the California statute of limitations, you have two years to file a claim against the responsible party and get compensation for your losses. Once the statute of limitations expires, a judge may not hear your case. However, there are exceptions to this rule.

You can get in touch with our attorneys at McCrary Law Firm for more information regarding this. We   can review the details of your claim and negotiate aggressively on your behalf to maximize your recovery.
