Brain trauma can range from mild cases that will have you back on your feet in no time, all the way to hospitalization for weeks or even months. The severity and duration of the injury usually determines the amount of money that can be recovered.
Can You Return to Work?
You may be entitled to compensation for all of the wages that you lose due to your recovery period. For example, if your injury keeps you out of the office for two weeks, and you make $2,000 dollars weekly, you may be entitled to $4,000 dollars in lost wages.
Furthermore, you may be entitled to wages you will lose in the future. This means that if your brain injury is permanent and prevents you from doing your normal job duties, you may be able to recover those losses. You can also be rewarded additional compensation if your injury forces you to work fewer hours in a day or take a lower-salaried position.
Other Aspects of Brain Injuries
Many only consider the financial consequences of brain injuries. However, a brain injury can affect many areas of your life, including communications, emotions, and behavior. Both the physical and emotional suffering endured may be compensated for.
