Economic Losses from Traumatic Brain Injury
Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) affect many aspects of a victim’s life. One of the most prominent impacts is the economic losses an individual or family may suffer as a result of the brain injury’s side effects making it impossible to return to work.

Economic Losses And Brain Injuries
In a personal injury claim, economic losses will generally fall into the following two categories:
- Past, present and future medical bills
- Past, present and future lost wages and earning capacity
When victims suffer damage that prevents them from earning a living, they are entitled to compensation for their economic losses in addition to the compensation they receive for pain and suffering and similar distress.
