There are many different ways that you might accidentally suffer a brain injury, but regardless of the manner in which you suffered it, such a brain injury could have lifelong effects on your life. There is a reason that bicyclists and motorcyclists wear helmets, and why construction workers where hardhats. It is because the head and brain are extremely sensitive parts of the body, where even a seemingly minor injury could cause catastrophic damage.
Even though any kind of brain injury could cause significant damage, the way in which you suffer a brain injury is still very important, especially from a legal perspective. There are times when people slip and fall simply due to a natural accident, and while they may suffer a devastating brain injury, there is not much legal recourse. However, if you slip and fall on someone else's property, you could recover compensation for any medical expenses and damages that result.
The same is true of motor vehicle accidents and even construction accidents. If your brain injury was the result of someone else's behavior, and that behavior was negligent or reckless to the point that the person should have known that their behavior could cause you significant harm, then they could be held responsible for your injuries.
Because brain injuries often have long-lasting effects, it can sometimes be difficult to determine just how much compensation you deserve for your brain injury.
