A Brain Injury Can Change Your Life and Your Family’s Lives
Treating and recovering from a brain injury can take months, years, or a lifetime. Per Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) research, a brain injury can vary in severity and can include mild, moderate, and severe concussion and traumatic brain injury (TBI).
Symptoms can include:
- Cognitive confusion
- Difficulty speaking
- Light sensitivity
- Loss of consciousness
- Memory loss
- Personality changes
- Visual disturbances
These symptoms can make a recovery period lengthy and costly. At the same time, they can prevent you from returning to school and prevent you from returning to work to support yourself and your family. Our brain injury attorneys will document the toll your injury takes on you and your family and build a strong case for financial compensation.
The Potentially Lifelong Costs of Treating a Brain Injury
The cost of recovering from a brain injury will vary on severity and duration. In some cases, your medical costs can include emergency, follow-up, and short-term treatment throughout your recovery.
In other cases, your treatment protocol can be more extensive and life-long and can include:
- Pain management and control
- Monitoring and supervision
- Anti-seizure medications
- Coma-inducing drugs
- Surgical intervention
- Physical therapy and rehabilitation
- Occupational and behavior therapy
- Speech and language therapy
Catastrophic brain injuries like TBIs can change your physical appearance and reduce your quality of life. Our law firm will help you recover these costs from the party whose negligence led to your accident and injuries.
Compensation We Can Seek for Brain Injury Victims
In addition to medical, therapeutic, and rehabilitative care, our law firm also helps you recover the costs of any assistive medical devices or specialized medical equipment you need. Additional recoverable economic damages may include:
- Current and future income loss
- Loss of future earning capacity
- Treatment-related travel expenses
- Property damage or destruction
- Diminished property value
You can also recover a range of non-economic damages. These are intangible and can be more difficult to prove on your own. We will explain the documents and evidence we obtain that prove the value of non-economic damages, including:
- Physical disabilities
- Disfiguring injuries
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Emotional distress
- Diminished quality of life
While you concentrate on your physical and emotional recovery, we get to work building your case. Our goal is to obtain the best possible compensation for you and to ensure your case is filed on time.
How the Statute of Limitations Affects Your Brain Injury Case
Where your accident occurred will determine the amount of time you have to file a personal injury lawsuit if a settlement agreement cannot be reached. In North Carolina, G.S. § 1-52 generally entitles you to three years to file your lawsuit. Similarly, S.C. Ann § 15-3-530 generally entitles you to three years to file.
Understanding the filing deadline in your state is crucial since an expired deadline can mean you have no legal avenue that compels the at-fault party to compensate you. With sufficient notice from you, our brain injury lawyer will not let this happen.
We will ensure the statute of limitations is accurately interpreted, too, since it can fluctuate based on certain circumstances of your accident. It is never too soon to get us involved in your case. The sooner you contact us, the more time we have to meet the requirements of your state.
