Brain Injury Compensation

Brain Injury Association of America - Preferred Attorney

One of the key concerns for brain injury victims is the amount of compensation they can expect to receive. While it's impossible to determine an exact figure without assessing the specific details of your case, certain factors can influence the value of your brain injury claim.

Factors That Determine the Value of Your Injury

Several factors come into play when determining the value of a brain injury claim. These include:

  • The severity of the injury: Brain injuries range in severity, though you should take all degrees of TBIs seriously. The more severe the injury, the higher the potential award might be due to lasting effects and more extensive medical treatment.
  • Medical expenses: The cost of medical treatment, including hospital stays, surgeries, medications, rehabilitation, and ongoing care, is a significant factor in determining the value of your claim.
  • Lost income: If your brain injury has caused you to miss work, you may be entitled to damages for lost income. This includes both past and future income losses.
  • Pain and suffering: Brain injuries often result in physical pain, emotional distress, and a reduced quality of life. Compensation for pain and suffering takes these intangible damages into account.
  • Future care costs: Severe brain injuries may require ongoing medical treatment, therapy, and support services. The anticipated costs of future care should factor into the value of your claim.

While these factors provide a general overview, it's important to consult an experienced brain injury lawyer and Dolman Law Group to assess your case's unique circumstances and determine the potential value of your claim.

Common Causes of Brain Injuries

Brain injuries can occur in various situations, and it's essential to understand the common causes to protect yourself and your loved ones. Some of the most common causes of brain injuries include:

  • Motor vehicle accidents: Car, motorcycle, bicycle, and pedestrian accidents are a leading cause of brain injuries. The force of impact, even at relatively low speeds, can result in head trauma.
  • Falls: Slip and fall accidents, particularly among older adults, are a significant cause of brain injuries. Uneven surfaces, slippery floors, and hazards in public spaces can all contribute to a fall that leads to head trauma.
  • Workplace accidents: Certain industries, such as construction and manufacturing, pose a higher risk of accidents that can cause brain injuries. Falls from heights, being struck by objects, and being involved in transportation accidents can all result in head trauma.
  • Sports injuries: Contact sports like football, hockey, and soccer can lead to brain injuries, particularly if proper safety protocols are not followed. Even non-contact sports like horseback riding or skiing can result in head trauma.
  • Assaults: Intentional acts of violence, such as physical assaults, can cause severe brain injuries. These cases often require the assistance of law enforcement in addition to legal representation.
  • Medical malpractice: Errors during surgery, anesthesia, or childbirth can result in brain injuries. Medical malpractice cases require a high level of experience and in-depth knowledge.

If you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury due to any of these causes or another form of negligence, seek legal guidance from a qualified brain injury attorney at our firm.

Types of Brain Injuries

Brain injuries can vary in severity and symptoms. Understanding the different types of brain injuries can help you better grasp your situation and the potential legal implications. Here are some of the most common types of brain injuries:


Concussions are traumatic brain injuries that often occur due to a blow to the head or a sudden jolt, leading to the brain hitting against the skull. Symptoms may include headaches, dizziness, confusion, memory problems, and temporary loss of consciousness.

Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs)

TBIs cover a broad range of injuries resulting from a severe blow or jolt to the head. These injuries can have long-lasting effects on the individual's physical and cognitive functions. TBIs may result in memory loss, difficulty concentrating, mood swings, and impaired motor skills.

Penetrating Injuries

Penetrating brain injuries occur when an object pierces the skull and directly damages brain tissue. These injuries are often severe and can result from gunshot wounds, stabbings, or other violent incidents.

Anoxic Brain Injuries

Anoxic brain injuries occur when the brain is deprived of oxygen for an extended period. This can happen in situations such as near-drowning incidents or when the brain is starved of oxygen during surgery.

Hypoxic Brain Injuries

Hypoxic brain injuries occur when there is a partial deprivation of oxygen to the brain. This can result in various symptoms, including cognitive impairments, memory loss, and difficulties with concentration.

No matter the type of brain injury you or your loved one has suffered, it's crucial to consult one of our experienced brain injury attorneys, who can seek compensation and hold the responsible parties accountable.
