Question:

What expenses could I recover in Idaho in a Traumatic Brain Injury lawsuit?

Answer:

TBI Recoverable Damages What damages can be recovered in a traumatic brain injury case in Idaho? The answer to that question is it’s largely the same as most other injury cases. Although, usually with a traumatic brain injury case, in our experiences with clients, there’s a form of disability or a lost wage in the future that can factor in. The reason for that is because, frequently, our clients who have traumatic brain injuries are fatigued every day. They’re exhausted. They can’t do the same processing they could in the past.

We had a client who had a chiropractic manipulation. His vertebral artery was severed, and he stroked¬– a type of traumatic brain injury. He was someone who worked with his hands. He went back to his profession and it was incredibly difficult. What we learned was he was not going to be able to be a foreman in that position anymore, and he didn’t really have that capacity. He had a significant claim for lost earning capacity, the amount he’d be able to earn the rest of his life, and he was a fairly young guy.

Lost earning capacity is one thing you’re able to recover, as well as any medical bills associated with the brain injury. Then, of course, there’s the general damages, which are the emotional and physical pain and suffering that you have been through. All of those things will be considered when determining what is recoverable in a traumatic brain injury case. If you have any questions at all about this information, please feel free to give us a call because we’re happy to talk to people about it.
