If you have suffered a traumatic brain injury through no fault of your own, a long road to recovery likely awaits. After many years of societal ignorance, serious brain injuries — including but not limited to concussions — and the consequences thereof are finally receiving the attention of the media and the medical community at-large that it deserves.

Though any accident can spiral out of control and lead to a traumatic brain injury, some situations are more likely to lead to such injuries. These include:
A brain injury — depending on the severity of the injury itself and depending on your pre-injury lifestyle — can have a range of adverse effects, both in the short-term and long-term. As such, potential damages include:
Traumatic brain injuries strike at the core of life, and for that reason, damages tend to be quite significant. A particularly severe brain injury can impose limitations on your ability to engage in recreational activities, to converse with others, to work and be productive, and more — as such, your claim for damages will have to consider the full extent of your losses in every aspect of your life that is adversely affected by the injury.
If you have suffered brain injuries due to the fault of another, you may be entitled to recover damages as compensation.
