Get the Help You Need After a Closed Head Injury
A closed head injury is one in which the skull is not broken. This is little consolation to someone who has just suffered a closed head injury‚ however‚ as the brain can be just as severely damaged by a blow to the head‚ even if the skull is undamaged. The unpredictability of brain injuries can be very overwhelming. Not knowing how much damage the brain has experienced or how that damage will impact the rest of your life is enough to create undue emotional burdens for you and your family. To make matters worse‚ you may need ongoing medical care and/or rehabilitative services to relearn certain skills or attempt to repair the damage that has been done. This can create financial hardship that you and your family cannot afford. The circumstances of your accident may offer you a legal option‚ however.
Injury accidents are often caused by the recklessness or negligence of others and under these circumstances‚ an injured victim has the right to hold the at-fault party responsible for their losses. If you or a loved one has suffered a closed head injury under such circumstances‚ the knowledgeable personal injury legal team at Jurewitz Law Group Injury & Accident Lawyers can help. We can examine the details of your accident and determine whether you have a valid claim. To speak to one of our San Diego brain injury lawyers‚ contact us for a consultation today. Even if you are not sure whether you want to pursue legal action‚ we believe it is important to be well informed before making such a decision.
Common Closed Head Injuries Covered Under Personal Injury Claims
Most traumatic brain injuries are closed head injuries and so are the most common types of brain injury claimed in personal injury lawsuits. If a brain injury has resulted in damages‚ whether mild or severe‚ you have the right to pursue financial compensation by way of a personal injury claim (if the injury was the result of negligence or recklessness). The amount of compensation you pursue is determined by the severity of your injury and its consequences. In severe cases‚ brain damage may result in permanent disability‚ which would likely not only prevent you from ever working and earning income ever again‚ but can completely alter the course of your life. Life-long medical care and/or accommodations were not a part of your future plans before your accident.
Common closed head injuries included in San Diego personal injury claims include‚ but are not limited to:
- Subdural hematomas;
- Subarachnoid hemorrhages;
- Contusions; and
- Brain herniation.
Damages Covered by a Brain Injury Claim
If you are successful in your claim for compensation after a brain injury‚ you may recover money for medical bills; rehabilitative care; future medical and rehabilitative care; medications; disability accommodations; at-home care; loss of income; loss of future income; pain and suffering; loss of quality of life; and other damages. The effects of a brain injury can change your entire life and the person who caused that change should be held responsible for what they’ve done.
