Brain Injury

Columbia Brain Injury Attorneys

Seeking Justice for Individuals with Traumatic Brain Injuries

The brain is the most important organ in the human body, and when it is injured, a person’s life can be terribly disrupted. If you or a loved one has suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI) due to another’s negligence, you could file a legal claim to hold them accountable, settle any debts, and afford treatment.

Types of Brain Injuries

Injuries to the brain may be sustained from many different accidents. They may come in the form of a closed head injury, such as a blow to the head, or a penetrating head injury, which is when an object fractures the skull and stabs the brain. There are several subcategories into which these two types of brain injuries may be classified, including but not limited to:

  • Contusions: bruises to the brain tissue
  • Concussions: mild TBIs or mTBIs
  • Coup-contrecoup injuries: when severe force causes the brain to slam into the skull
  • Diffuse axonal injuries (DAIs): when a rotational or shaking force tears the brain tissue
  • Anoxic events: when brain damage occurs due to a lack of oxygen, such as from drowning

Brain Injury Symptoms

Most types of brain injuries tend to require long-term treatment to heal or, if a full recovery is not possible, to adjust to living with. As such, you are likely to be stuck with countless bills and expenses in addition to having to cope with the distress and trauma of sustaining a life-changing injury.

Unfortunately, you may find that you can no longer engage in the activities you used to enjoy or carry out the day-to-day tasks you would previously do on your own, such as bathing, traveling to work, preparing food, and getting around your house. This is because the symptoms of TBIs and their associated conditions can be very severe and may include:

  • Coma

  • Paralysis

  • Seizures

  • Cognitive issues

  • Persistent headaches

  • Vision problems

  • Hearing problems

  • Insomnia or other sleep problems

  • Personality and mood changes

  • Sensitivity to noise and/or light

What Is the Average Payout for a Head Injury?

While the average head injury payout is tens of thousands of dollars, it is not helpful to put a blanket estimate on all head and brain injury cases because they will each be worth a different amount based on the damages the plaintiff incurred.

Typically, injured individuals can recover compensation for medical expenses, disability accommodations, loss of earnings or earning capacity, pain and suffering, reduced quality of life, shock/mental anguish, emotional distress, and more.

Time Limits for Filing a Brain Injury Claim

Per the Revised Statutes of Missouri § 516.120, claims must be brought forth within five years from the date the brain injury was sustained, otherwise they will be considered invalid. When you are also healing from or adjusting to your injury, these five years can run out quickly. Don’t wait to consult a lawyer about your case. You do not want to accidentally submit a weak claim or let the statute of limitations expire because you waited too long to get started.
