Q
What is a car accident case worth that involved a traumatic brain injury?

A

All injuries that result from another’s negligence in a Georgia car accident should be compensated accordingly. So it goes without saying that claims for traumatic brain injuries are typically worth more than claims for broken bones. This is because a traumatic brain injury is often more severe, leading to lifetime of behavioral, emotional, and physical problems.

TBI victims should receive the maximum compensation, especially when permanent loss of function occurs. Some of the expenses a victim should be compensated for include:

  • Ambulance ride
  • Emergency room visit
  • Hospital bills
  • X-ray, MRI, and other tests
  • Surgical costs
  • Ongoing medical care
  • Physical therapy
  • Occupational therapy
  • Speech therapy
  • Counseling therapy
  • Loss of future income
  • Personal care costs
  • Pain and suffering

Every personal injury claim in Georgia will be worth different amounts depending on the severity of the injury and the prognosis. If a doctor says that a patient will never speak or walk again, that person should be compensated more than a person who didn’t suffer a permanent disability. For this reason, an injury lawyer shouldn’t provide anyone with an approximate case worth without reviewing the diagnosis and medical records.

At the Law Offices of Shane Smith, we fight hard for patients with brain injuries because we know that most people with a TBI will have to suffer the long-term effects such as cognitive, behavioral, and emotional difficulties that the accident caused. Although no amount of money will take away a brain injury, a skilled Peachtree City injury lawyer can help brain injury victims get the amount they deserve.
