Although it is not physically seen, the effects of brain injuries are far reaching. If you were injured in a car accident – or other type of accident — and believe that you may have sustained a brain injury, it’s important to maintain medical records and document the effects of the injury on your daily life in a journal. As with all areas of personal injury, you may be able to collect monetary compensation for costs of therapy and medical visits, loss of income, reduced quality of life, and the pain you have suffered.
People who experience brain injuries have to face a lasting impairment. Whether this results from an accident, fall, sports injury, acts of violence, or medical incompetence, the victim may be able to receive compensation for loss of income, medical costs, pain, suffering and other damages.
