What Damages Might Be Recoverable After a Brain Injury?

If your brain injury was caused by someone else’s negligent or intentional actions, you have the right to bring a claim against the liable party for your compensatory damages. These include objectively verifiable losses (economic damages) and intangible losses (non-economic damages).

Because brain injury victims often require extensive and long-term medical care, compensatory damages awards can be quite substantial in these cases. You can bring a claim for all of your medical expenses including doctor’s appointments, physical therapy, diagnostic imaging, psychiatric support, and speech therapy. Your claim can also include compensation for lost wages, loss of future earning capacity, home modifications, and non-medical needs such as cooking and driving.

Non-economic damages include pain and suffering, loss of consortium, injury to reputation, humiliation, loss of companionship and society, and emotional distress. You may be entitled to compensation for non-economic damages if:

  • You endured severe pain due to your injuries;
  • You endured mental anguish, grief, shame, or shock;
  • Your brain injury caused permanent and disabling effects such as blindness or paralysis; or
  • Your brain injury has affected your ability to be intimate or provide moral support to your registered domestic partner or spouse.

Several factors will influence whether your injury claim will be successful and the total amount of compensation you may be able to recover. Those factors include:

  • The cost of your past and future medical treatment;
  • The amount of income you lost while recovering from your injury;
  • Whether your brain injury affected your future earning capacity;
  • The permanence and severity of your injury;
  • How the injury affected your relationship with your spouse or registered domestic partner;
  • Whether the defendant acted with malice, oppression, or fraud; and
  • The cost of any home care you will need.

What Evidence Will My Brain Injury Attorney Use to Prove Damages?

The cost of medical bills and lost wages can be exorbitant after suffering a brain injury. Ultimately, the success of your case will hinge on the strength of your evidence. Even if it seems obvious that the defendant caused your injuries, you will need strong evidence to prove liability and the value of your damages.

Common evidence used to prove damages in brain injury cases includes:

  • CT scans, X-rays, and other diagnostic imaging;
  • Medical documentation;
  • Proof of lost benefits;
  • Photos and videos of your injuries and the accident that caused them;
  • The police report, if applicable; and
  • Receipts and invoices for home care, home modifications, and other expenses related to your injury.
