What Compensation is Available for Brain Injury Victims and Their Families?
Organ damage caused by an illness or injury can lead to far-reaching effects inside a victim’s body. Heart and lung damage can result in weakness, shortness of breath, and reduced mobility, while kidney and liver damage can result in dizziness, nausea, and pain.
All organ damage can be disruptive and even life-threatening, but brain damage—including concussions and other mild brain injuries—can lead to severe and lasting effects. Whether caused by auto accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, or even work injuries, people who suffer brain injuries may experience dramatic changes in personality, cognitive function, and even their ability to live independently.
At Rainwater, Holt & Sexton, our Arkansas brain injury lawyers know how devastating even seemingly minor brain injuries can be for victims and their families. It’s our goal to help them get compensation for:
- Medical bills – Brain injury victims may be hospitalized for weeks, months, or even years. When they’re released, they may need frequent or constant care, but treatments are often more expensive than victims and their families can afford.
- Lost wages – Brain injury victims may lose the ability to perform their jobs or work in any capacity. Without their regular income, they may be unable to pay for their medical expenses or support their families.
Even concussions and other milder forms of brain injuries can have severe consequences for many victims and their families. If you or a loved one suffered a brain injury, we want to help. It’s our goal to make sure the insurance company knows how your family is suffering and to help you get maximum compensation. Call today for a free consultation.
