Brain Injury Settlements

While no amount of money can erase the pain and trauma of a brain injury; a settlement, in many cases is not only fair, but necessary when considering the long-term costs associated with brain injury. Brain injury settlements can be used to cover or supplement the following financial and emotional burdens that victims or the family members of brain-injury victims might suffer:

  • Accumulated hospital bills
  • Long-term medical costs (current and future injuries relevant to the accident)
  • Physical therapy and rehabilitation costs
  • Lost wages (current and future wages lost due to injuries sustained)
  • Pain and suffering
  • Reduction of quality of life

Brain Injury Causes

Accidents involving motor vehicles are the leading cause of traumatic brain injury. In fact, fifty percent of all brain injuries are caused by automobile accidents. Beyond that, there are two different kinds of brain injury: an acquired brain injury and a traumatic brain injury.

Acquired Brain Injury

An acquired brain injury is any type of brain injury that has occurred after birth. Asphyxia is one of the leading causes of acquired brain injury. Asphyxia occurs when the body is deprived of oxygen due to choking, drowning or suffocation. This lack of oxygen causes brain cells to die, resulting in damage.

Other causes of acquired brain injury include excessive blood loss, injuries in which the chest has been crushed, certain illnesses and diseases, stroke and heart attack, electrical shock or lightening strike, and exposure to toxic materials.

Traumatic Brain Injury

A traumatic brain injury is caused by trauma to the brain. This can result from: the head striking an object, a blow to the head, an object penetrating the brain tissue, or damage to brain tissue related to an accident.

Accidents involving motor vehicles, ATVs, motorcycles, and bicycles are the leading cause of traumatic brain injury. Other causes include: falls, violence, and sports-related injuries (especially those associated with contact sports like football, hockey, rugby and lacrosse).
