What Damages Can you Include in Your Claim for Brain Injury?

Brain injury claims are some of the most complicated to file. That’s because the consequences of a brain injury may continue to be seen for weeks and months after the injury. It is important for you to evaluate the severity of your injury, the impact on your functioning, and other aspects before you decide on a settlement value.

It can help if you maintain all medical records of your treatment after the brain injury. Document all of your expenses, including hospital costs, medication expenses, and other expenses associated with the treatment of your injury. If you are advised rehabilitation therapy, make a note of that as well. Making a complete documentation of all expenses in this manner, will help you claim damages for the additional medical expenses that you may face in the future. For assistance filing a brain injury claim, speak to a Denver personal injury lawyer.

Apart from medical expenses, you may also be able to claim for lost income, days lost from work as a result of the injury, as well as diminished earning ability in the future. If your brain injury results in you being unable to return to work, then you must account for all of the lost income that you have suffered.
