Damages in Norwalk Brain Injury Cases
Brain injury victims may be entitled to compensation for any economic and non-economic damages they’ve already incurred, as well as the damages they’re reasonably certain to incur in the future.
Depending on the circumstances, you may be able to include the following types of damage in the settlement calculations:
- Medical Bills:Any past and future healthcare costs related to the brain injury may be rolled into your claim for damages. These may encompass items like emergency care, surgeries, medical monitoring, and rehabilitation.
- Lost Wages:It’s not uncommon for brain injury victims to take several weeks or even months off work to heal and recover. As such, any income you lost during that time may be included in your claim.
- Loss of Future Earnings:If you’re not expected to make a full recovery or if it’s going to take a considerable amount of time for you to return to work, you may be entitled to compensation for loss of future earnings.
- Other Economic Damages:Other kinds of economic damages that might be recoverable include domestic help, transportation, childcare, and home and vehicle modifications.
- Pain and Suffering:TBI is often accompanied by chronic headaches, incontinence, and other symptoms that cause intense, lasting pain and suffering. These types of intangible losses can be included in your claim.
- Hedonic Damages:If the injury has affected your quality of life, for example, by preventing you from enjoying your favorite hobbies or social activities, you might be entitled to something called “hedonic damages” to compensate for that loss in enjoyment.
Depending on the cause of your brain injury, you may also be entitled to punitive damages. These damages are only available if the defendant acted with malice, oppression, or fraud. Examples of cases when punitive damages might be warranted include drunk driving accidents and violent attacks. It may also be possible for your spouse or registered domestic partner to bring a claim for loss of consortium, which is the loss of moral support, intimacy, protection, care, comfort, companionship, and affection within your relationship.
