A brain injury is damage to the brain, which can happen as a result of internal or external trauma. Brain injuries vary in severity and can impact a victim’s life in several ways. A brain injury can impact your ability to work and do normal daily activities that you could do before the injury.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that in 2020 there were approximately 176 traumatic brain injury-related deaths every day. Falls are responsible for nearly half of all traumatic brain injury-related hospitalizations. Falls are also the leading cause of brain injury-related deaths in adults aged 65 and over, as well as the leading cause of emergency department visits and hospitalizations in adults over age 45, and children 14 years and younger.

A brain injury can affect your life in different ways, depending on the part of your brain that is injured, and the severity of the injury. The impact may be temporary or permanent. Some of the common long-term consequences of a traumatic brain injury include:
These conditions may impact your ability to keep the same kind of employment you had before your injury. Your ability to contribute to family life may also be impacted. They may also require life-long medical care to manage your quality of life.
When you are suffering from a brain injury, whether it is permanent or not, the financial ramifications can be overwhelming. The cost of medical care, rehabilitation, and other expenses can quickly stack up to hundreds of thousands of dollars. If your injury is caused by another person’s negligence, you might be entitled to compensation for your economic losses, which include past and future medical expenses, and past and future lost wages. You may also be entitled to non-economic damages for pain and suffering.
