Recovering Compensation for Your Head Injury
After your head injury, you may wonder what kind of damages qualify for compensation through a settlement. The truth is, all of them do so long as they’re a direct result of your head injury or from your accident.
Medical Treatment Expenses
Medical expenses are by far the most common damage we help head injury victims recover compensation for. An injury to the head is costly to treat, especially if there is extensive damage to the face or skull. You could look at upwards of thousands of dollars depending on the severity.
You shouldn’t have to make the hard choice between being financially stable or receiving proper care. We don’t want you to end up paying for injuries that weren’t even your fault to begin with. Our head injury lawyers will account for all of your medical bills and ensure they get put into your settlement total.
Lost Wages and Reduced Earning Capability
Your head injury will more than likely put you out of work for several days. If it doesn’t, you may end up having to work at a reduced capacity. Both scenarios end the same, with you losing out on wages you otherwise would have earned had it not been for the at-fault party that caused your head injury.
Our attorneys will calculate all of the days you missed work and figure out how much the at-fault party owes you in lost wages.
Disfigurement and Disability
Head injuries have a high risk of disfigurement or disability. You could end up with vision impairment, cognitive impairment, and much more. In addition, injuries to your face or head can leave you with scars and other lasting impacts that lead to disfigurement.
Disfigurement and disability fall under the category of non-economic damages. While these damages typically don’t have a set value, our lawyers use various formulas and other factors to accurately assess how much you should receive in compensation. We hope that the money you receive will allow you to reclaim your life and move forward in the best way possible towards recovery.

Head Injuries Can Also Include Traumatic Brain Injury
Remember, head injuries affect more than just the skull or the face. You can also end up hurting your brain as well. In this instance, your head injury also includes traumatic brain injury, which can end up causing a host of medical issues down the line.
Johns Hopkins states that traumatic brain injuries cost the U.S. more than $56 billion per year. Many people who suffer a traumatic brain injury can have negative impacts that last throughout their life. Those living with the effects of this type of injury have issues that require chronic treatment and assistance to do basic things throughout daily life.
If your head injury also caused injury to your brain, you need to seek medical treatment immediately and follow up right after with one of our attorneys. Our goal is to make certain that the insurance company and the at-fault party pay and cover your expenses.
When Should I File a Claim?
You need to file a claim when you have a strong case. Filing too early only works for the benefit of the insurance company. In fact, many insurance adjusters will contact you right after an accident in an attempt to get you to settle early.
They do this because they know that any future damages you incur will no longer be their obligations once you settle early. We can help you understand all of the aspects of your case so that this doesn’t happen. While you do have only two years to file your claim, rest assured that our attorneys will do everything to build a strong case and file at the right time.
