How Much Is a Traumatic Brain Injury Worth?
A traumatic brain injury settlement or verdict award could repay you for all past and future losses associated with your injury. The value of your case will depend on the severity of the TBI. If you or a loved one will have permanent symptoms, the courts will generally award you a sizable amount to pay for lifelong medical care, lost wages, emotional distress, pain and suffering, medical treatments and more. A minor brain injury, on the other hand, will not be worth as much in damages. If the defendant was grossly negligent in causing your TBI, he or she may also owe punitive damages.
