Long-Term Effects of a Brain Injury

When the brain suffers a blow or laceration, it can permanently damage the brain tissue. Because your brain is the information center for the body, this can have long-lasting effects. Depending on what part of the brain was injured, you may lose motor control, sight, memories, or even essential functions like breathing.

Even a mild concussion can cause severe consequences. You may have brain fog, trouble focusing, or memory loss that impacts your ability to function as you once did. Worse, brain injuries can compound, meaning that if you have already suffered a brain injury, even a mild one may cause serious problems.

Recovering from a brain injury can be expensive as well. You may need specialist treatment, which can be costly. You may also need rehabilitation services to help you relearn how to do specific tasks. Depending on the severity of your injuries, you may even lose your independence, leaving you needing around-the-clock care.

Who Is Responsible for Your Brain Injury?

Because a brain injury can be devastating, you need to know who is responsible for your accident to take legal action and get compensated for your suffering. But who is liable when you suffer head trauma?

The answer depends on the type of accident that you suffered. For example, if you were hurt in a car accident, you may have grounds to sue the other driver, seek compensation through their insurance company, or even sue the company they work for if they were on the job.

However, you may have suffered head trauma after a slip-and-fall accident or other premises liability accident. When this happens, it is typically the responsibility of the property owner to cover the costs of your injuries.

Reach out for help from an attorney who can guide you through getting compensated after a devastating loss.

You May Be Due Compensation for Your Brain Trauma

Once you have determined who’s at fault for your injuries, you may then start calculating what your claim is worth. Your compensation comprises economic and non-economic damages, which can be challenging to calculate.

If you have suffered brain trauma because someone else was negligent with your safety, talk to our Evansville personal injury attorneys about the following damages and what your claim is worth:

  • Current and future medical bills
  • Rehabilitation services
  • Property damage
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life

Statute of Limitations for Evansville Brain Injury Claims

When you have suffered a traumatic brain injury, acting as soon as possible is best. You only have a limited time to file a claim or lawsuit, and if you do not do so within that time period, you may lose your chance to get compensated.

You only have two years to file a personal injury lawsuit in Indiana, with a few exceptions. If you do not act within these time limits, your claim may be dismissed, leaving you paying out of pocket for your suffering. Talk to your lawyer about your options for acting as soon as possible.
