A traumatic brain injury (TBI) and a spinal cord injury can affect your entire life to the point where it is no longer possible to maintain employment and earn an income to support yourself. If you live in Western Michigan, there are other serious effects that you should be aware of when dealing with such injuries. When you suffer from these injuries, it’s important that you speak with a personal injury lawyer about what this means for your claim. Your mental capacity may be substantially limited which could ultimately lead to permanent disability. For instance, if someone loses his or her ability to communicate properly due to a TBI or spinal cord injury, they will probably need help to do simple daily tasks like brushing their teeth and getting dressed.
We will do whatever it takes to get you or a loved one justice for someone else’s negligent actions. To get the strong legal representation you deserve, contact our personal injury law firm as soon as possible.
Will I Recover More Compensation Because I Was Permanently Injured?
Another fact to consider when someone is permanently injured in a car accident is whether or not they will be able to make more money. Although this one factor might not determine your claim, it could affect how much compensation you receive if you need to replace your ability to earn an income or bring in as much as possible.
For instance, let’s say that the same individual with a TBI and spinal cord injury can now no longer work and needs help with daily tasks. This person likely needs financial help providing for their family without being able to work. The victim will have a stronger case, because of his or her permanent injuries, than someone who was only temporarily disabled by a car accident and has regained their previous abilities after a period of time. Every case is different so it is best to consult with an attorney to learn about the potential compensation you may be entitled to.
