Most people have suffered a painful injury, but it is an entirely different situation when one of the most important parts of the human body is compromised to an injury – the brain. Accidents of any kind, whether it be a car accident or a slip and fall, can cause a traumatic brain injury. A traumatic brain injury can have effects that range from mild to severe, some of which can last a lifetime. If left untreated, your traumatic brain injury can cause you significant pain and suffering for quite some time.
Fortunately, if you believe your traumatic brain injury was caused by the negligent behavior of another party, your pain and suffering can be a reason you are owed compensation. Legally, “pain and suffering” means you are going through or have gone through physical pain as a result of your accident, that may have needed medical treatment, and you are suffering from mental problems such as stress, anxiety, sleeping disorders, and more. If you have experienced any pain and suffering, you may want to consult with an experienced lawyer to see if you are eligible for damages caused by your accident.
