The Brain is the Most Vital Organ
The human brain is magnificent. The brain controls your thoughts, memories, speech, movement, and breathing. A major injury to such a vital organ can literally damage every part of your functioning and your life. Even a seemingly minor brain injury can cause lasting harm.
Brain injuries are extremely serious and will always require immediate medical attention. Even a minor concussion can lead to permanent cognitive and behavioral issues. The most serious brain injuries can result in permanent physical disability, paralysis, and even death. Unlike most organs, the brain cannot heal itself by regenerating new cells.
Many victims of brain injuries are never the same. In extreme situations, brain death is a possibility. It goes without saying that a brain injury can be physically, emotionally, and financially devastating.
Legal Recovery for Brain Injuries
A brain injury victim may be entitled to compensatory damages for:
- Emotional distress;
- Lost wages; and
- Medical bills.
When someone else’s negligence or wrongful conduct results in an injury to your brain, the law may entitle you to compensation to pay for medical bills, lost wages, and support to help you live as normally as possible. Depending on the circumstances in which you were injured, you may also recover compensation for your physical or mental suffering or other non-economic damages.
