Given the small size and open design of a motorcycle, the injuries suffered in a crash can be severe. Severe brain and head injuries are by far some of the worst to experience and are even possible if you were wearing a helmet.
Your wellbeing and your finances will both be negatively affected by this type of injury, but brain damage also affects your family and relationships. In many cases, clients require special medical treatment and long-term care, making life even more difficult for you and those around you.
If you or a loved one has been involved in a motorcycle wreck that resulted in a traumatic brain injury (TBI), contact a Baton Rouge motorcycle accident brain injury lawyer from Spencer Calahan Injury Lawyers.
A Traumatic Brain Injury Can Change Your Life
In order to successfully resolve your motorcycle accident claim, the full impact to your life needs to be assessed. A brain injury is likely to have a drastic impact on both your personal and professional lives.
Even a minor concussion can develop into severe problems, especially if it isn’t treated properly after the wreck. Any brain injury can lead to the development of memory problems, mood swings, or trouble processing information. Tasks that you once did without thinking might suddenly be problematic and need to be relearned in a different way.
It’s not uncommon for victims of serious traumatic brain injuries to find their marriage and personal relationships strained, as their loved ones begin to treat them differently due to the changes in their behavior and personality. You might not be able to continue in your current job, either, leading to severely hampered income and earning ability.
Compensation for a Motorcycle Crash Brain Injury
Brain damage is difficult to recover from, and even a minor concussion can leave you more susceptible to reinjury later. Because of this, it’s essential that you get fully compensated so that you don’t wind up paying out of pocket for additional expenses later.
The amount of compensation you are eligible to claim for your crash and TBI will vary based on a variety of factors, but you should receive compensation for all of the financial expenses and lost quality of life you experience:
Medical bills, including current and future expenses
Home renovations made necessary by the head injury
Lost wages and reduced earning potential
Personal property damage, including damage done to your motorcycle
Pain and suffering
Lost enjoyment of life
