Workplace Traumatic Brain Injury
TBI is often caused by a fall, trip, automobile accident, or coma from a heavy impact to the head. It is not always easy to spot traumatic brain injury. Many people suffer from mild traumatic brain injury, which can be just as deadly as other injuries that are easier to identify, like a fractured skull.
Left untreated, TBI can become unmanageable. Today, traumatic brain injury is the leading cause of injury-related death in the United States. Although mild TBI may not be life-threatening, it can have significant effects on your cognitive, physical, and emotional well-being.
Elements of a Brain Injury Lawsuit
Another party’s negligence must be the cause of the victim’s injury in order to file a workers’ compensation lawsuit. In this type of case, the injured party must prove the following:
- Duty of Care
- Breach of Duty
Compensation for Traumatic Brain Injury
Because of the complexity and long-lasting effects of traumatic brain injuries, you may be able to recover compensation for medical costs and more. Other areas of compensation include:
The victim may file a claim for bills related to medical care for their injury in a brain injury lawsuit. For instance, expenses for therapy, rehab, hospitalizations, and doctor’s visits may all be covered.
Pain and Suffering
The physical and emotional toll of a traumatic brain injury can be significant. You may be able to seek monetary awards for lasting pain and suffering.
Loss of Life’s Enjoyment
A brain injury can put limitations on what you can do mentally and physically for the rest of your life. Plaintiffs may be entitled to compensation if they are unable to perform activities they once enjoyed.
Missed time from work is an unfortunate reality of these types of injuries. Those who file claim lawsuits may be able to recover lost wages that were a result of the injury. Compensation for lost future wages is also possible.
When traumatic brain injuries are fatal, the heirs of the victim can file what is called a wrongful death lawsuit. In the case of wrongful death, the family may be entitled to financial damages from expenses like funeral costs or lost wages.
