Our Michigan motorcycle accident lawyers represent bikers who have suffered serious injuries in an accident. Unfortunately, a common injury suffered by a biker in a motorcycle accident is a traumatic brain injury, or closed head injury. This type of brain injury is often life altering and forever changes the way of life for not only the accident victim, but also for the entire family and support team.
Our Michigan brain injury lawyers understand that changes caused by a brain injury not only affect a person’s ability to care for themselves, but also that changes in personality can affect marriages, families, and friendships. Traumatic brain injury patients are often unable to return to work and suffer a significant impairment of earnings and earning potential.
Motorcycle Brain Injuries: Damages & Compensation
Damages in traumatic brain injury cases from a motorcycle accident are often substantial because they seek to compensate the injured person for the tremendous cost for their care and rehabilitation as well as, quite often, a lifetime of decreased earnings. Accident victims who have suffered traumatic brain injuries generally can collect the following damages:
- Medical expenses including all hospital and doctor bills
- Attendant care services and replacement care services
- Pain and suffering, including future pain and suffering & disability
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Reasonable value for loss of time and earning capacity
- Poor health or disability caused by the traumatic brain injury
- Aggravation of a pre-existing injury caused by the traumatic brain injury
