The brain is one of the most important organs in the body. It plays a role in mood, thought processes, motor skills, and other bodily functions. Unfortunately, when a person suffers a brain injury, any or all of these functions can be affected.
Traumatic brain injuries are especially damaging. A brain injury earns this classification when its effects are considered life altering. At Saunders Law Group, our brain injury attorney understands the unique circumstances of a brain injury and is prepared to fight for the rights of our clients to ensure they are fully compensated for the wide range of damages that can stem from such an injury. Damages in brain injury cases are often severe, because this type of injury requires extensive medical treatment and rehabilitation. Our attorneys take all of these factors into consideration when seeking financial compensation for our brain injury clients.

Brain Injury Damages
Like any other bodily injury, a brain injury will be unique to each individual. As stated above, a brain injury may affect a person in a multitude of ways, including personality changes, loss of control of bodily functions, impaired cognitive skills, impaired motor skills, or all of the above.
When seeking compensation for these damages, it is of the utmost importance to work with an experienced brain injury attorney who is prepared to calculate the ultimate damages of such an injury. Brain injury cases are unique from other personal injury cases and an attorney who has experience in these types of cases will be able to ensure that all avenues of loss are accounted for when seeking compensation.
Our brain injury attorney can help clients collect compensation for the following types of brain injury damages:
- Loss of earning capacity: Any injury is likely to result in lost wages due to time away from work, but a brain injury is unique in that it often affects the type of work a person can perform. Many brain injury victims must give up working altogether, or drastically alter their line of work. Our attorney works alongside experts to calculate each of our client's loss of earning capacity, including the possible loss of retirement benefits, to ensure they are fully compensated for these losses.
- Medical care costs: A brain injury will require extensive medical treatment. In most cases, this medical treatment will be required throughout the person's lifetime. It can be difficult to prove exactly how much a lifetime of medical care will cost. However, our attorneys work with experts and consider costs such as prescriptions, rehabilitation, medical equipment, and attendant care costs to maximize compensation for medical and rehabilitation expenses.
- Pain and suffering: In a brain injury case, our attorneys will fight for compensation for pain and suffering. This includes not only physical pain, but also emotional pain, and a general loss of enjoyment of life. While these losses do not have a price tag, they can be traumatic for the injury victim and family members. Our attorneys will fight to ensure that these losses are not minimized when compensation is calculated.
If you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury due to the reckless or negligent actions of another person or party, you deserve to be compensated for your damages. Contact us at your earliest convenience to set up a consultation with our experienced brain injury attorney.
