If you were injured in a car accident or any other of the major TBI causes, and are experiencing any of the symptoms listed above, you may want to consider filing a personal injury claim. At this time, it is important that you keep track of your medical records, files, and notes that may support your case.
If you choose to seek out a lawyer you will need to communicate your possible negligence and make sure that a personal injury claim is the right course of action. If so then you will want to hire an injury attorney to properly calculate the damages. In this situation, you can gain compensation for medical bills, therapy bills, and potentially even for lost wages.
When you file a traumatic brain injury-related personal injury claim, you should have a proper understanding of possible damages in this sort of case. These include “special damages” and “general damages”. Special damages include economic factors such as: lost wages, cost of medical treatment, cost of therapy, potentially to repair damages (vehicle or other related objects), and funeral costs. General damages are non-economic losses such as loss of enjoyment in life, mental difficulties (anxiety/depression), emotional distress (irritable/mood swings). These damages are a lot harder to tag with a dollar amount because the value of each of these is not the same for everyone, however, if you’re looking for a more secure settlement, special damages are easier to give an exact numerical value.
