How to Determine the Value of Your Brain Injury Claim

BrainHave you or a loved one suffered a traumatic brain injury in Boston, MA? If so, you may not know what steps to take next. The medical bills are probably piling up, which may only be compounded by the fact that you are no longer able to work or earn a living.

Fortunately, you are not without options. If your injury is the result of someone else’s careless, reckless or otherwise negligent actions, you could be entitled to damages. With the help of a personal injury attorney from Abraham & Associates, P.C., you can pursue the level of financial compensation that you need to get your life back on track.

How much is my brain injury claim worth?

Like any lawyer will tell you, there is no way to know how much your injury claim will be worth until a final verdict or settlement has been reached; however, there are ways to determine what types of damages you may be entitled to and how much you may be eligible to recover.

Damages you may be eligible to recover include compensation for:

  • Past and future loss of income
  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Diminished earning capacity
  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress and anguish
  • Ongoing physical therapy
  • Loss of consortium / enjoyment

Economic vs. Non-Economic Damages

When determining the value of your brain injury claim, you will need to assess all of the economic and non-economic damages that you have suffered. Economic damages refer to the monetary losses that your injury has caused (i.e. cost of medical treatment), while non-economic damages refer to factors like pain and suffering and mental anguish. This means that the value of your claim will be determined by the impact that your injury has had on your life.

When the victim of a preventable accident suffers an injury that is catastrophic, or permanent, in nature—as is true in brain injury cases—the resulting damages are usually significant. Catastrophic injuries prevent the victim from ever returning to the quality of life that they had before the accident, which is something that the other party, or a jury, will have to take into consideration. Discuss your brain injury case with Abraham & Associates, P.C. to learn more.

Should I accept an offer from the insurance company?

Statistics show that more than 90% of personal injury cases are settled before trial. Nobody wants to spend months or years dealing with a drawn-out legal battle, but that does not mean that you should accept the first settlement that the insurance party offers. Insurance companies are only interested in one thing: protecting their bottom line. For this reason, you can’t trust them to look out for your best interests. The only person you should trust is your lawyer.

When you work with our firm, we will do whatever it takes to secure a favorable resolution on your behalf – be it a verdict or settlement. Contact our office now to discuss your options!
