Every case is different. The amount of damages that you are able to recover in a brain injury settlement or lawsuit will depend on numerous factors, including:
- Your unique injuries. Damages will be based on the specific side effects of your brain injury and how they impact your life.
- The expenses you’ve incurred as a result of the accident. Your loss of income, medical expenses, and other costs may be recovered.
- Who was at fault for your accident. If you bear any responsibility for the accident or your injuries, then your recovery may be reduced.
- How you pursue your recovery. In most cases, people who are represented by experienced attorneys recover more in settlements or lawsuits than those who chose to represent themselves.
While the amount of damages will differ, the types of damages that you might be able to recover in a brain injury lawsuit are similar.
