Brain Injury: Evaluating the Losses

Motor vehicle accidents continue to be one of the leading causes of traumatic brain injury. Car accident victims who have suffered a traumatic brain injury, often live with physical, emotional, psychological and cognitive functions that are lost or forever changed as a result of the initial injury.

Effects of s traumatic brain injury

Traumatic brain injuries, create life long losses that can affect every aspect of a persons life.

  • Past and future medical care
  • Property loss and out of pocket expenses caused by the accident
  • Housekeeping and care of the home
  • Pain and suffering
  • Past and future loss of income
  • Losses to the family
  • Loss of Self

Evaluating the Losses

Because the brain has so many responsibilities, the type of loss and disability varies, depending on what part of the brain has been injured.Types of brain injuries that are commonly associated with car accident include:

  • Concussion
  • Post concussion syndrome
  • Injury to the frontal lobe
  • Diffuse axonal injury
  • Coup-Contrecoup Injury
  • Contusion
  • Second Impact Syndrome
  • Open Head Injury
  • Closed head injury

In all cases of brain injury, physical damage to the brain is only the beginning of the domino of effects it will have on the lives of the victim and their loved ones.

It is easier to understand the things we can see.  If the brain is so damaged that it cannot send or receive signals, the body will die.  When only certain parts of the brain are damaged, the body can survive. From the outside we might look exactly the same while inside, we are a completely different person emotionally, mentally and socially than before the accident. Each of these changes represents a loss of self that affects not only the victim but also the entire family.  Although these losses are massive and heartbreaking to those involved, claims for damages must fit certain criteria to be covered in a personal injury lawsuit.
