Our brain injury lawyers know that our client's traumatic brain injury case is not over once we prove our client has suffered a traumatic brain injury. Proving the extent of the damages our clients have suffered is a vital element in any traumatic brain injury case.
The brain injury lawyers at Buckfire and Buckfire, P.C. have won substantial amounts for our clients from both jury verdicts and settlements. Traumatic brain injury cases present some of the most difficult and complicated damages, because the brain is itself a complex organ that is not fully understood. The full extent of damages might be slow in developing, and yet, there are often immediately noticeable changes in personality and mood.
Our Michigan brain injury lawyers understand that these changes in personality 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.
Damages in traumatic brain injury cases 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 traumatic brain injury damages:
- Medical expenses including all hospital and doctors' bills
- Pain and suffering, including future pain and suffering
- 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
There are many excellent support groups for traumatic brain injury patients in their families throughout the United States that promote treatment, prevention, and education. Most states have strong local chapters of the national associations, including a Michigan chapter.
