How are Damages Assessed in a Brain Injury Case?

Posted by: Personal Injury Attorney

How are Damages Assessed in a Brain Injury CaseBrain injuries are among the most dramatic and life-changing consequences of an accident. When the injury occurs as the result of the negligence of another, the court assesses the impact of these injuries on the victim's life to come up with an appropriate financial award.

The court leans on medical records and the testimony of physicians as well as the victim, when possible, to determine the extent and nature of the brain injuries. Factors such as the total cost of the medical bills, the person's ability to continue earning a paycheck in their chosen profession, pain and suffering, the possibility of future medical bills and the necessity for more treatments, and the loss of the ability to enjoy life are all taken into account by the judge.

Because medical bills and the testimony of physicians are instrumental in helping to determine the amount of the financial award, it is important to seek medical attention as soon as possible, even if the victim of the accident does not appear to be injured immediately after the accident. Some brain injuries cause impairments that do not manifest until weeks, or even months have passed. Others have immediate and traumatic effects on the person's ability to function.
