FAQ: How to determine brain injury settlements in Illinois (IL)

Calculating damages for Brain Injury Settlements 

Every case is unique and depends on a wide variety of factors.  Below are a few factors we look at in evaluating a brain injury case prior to settlement: 
  • Severity of your brain injury (hospitilization, surgery, rehabilitation, disability)
  • amount of pain and suffering
  • amount of medical treatment and treatment
  • lost income or time from work
  • Reduced quality of life
  • Facts of the case
  • Witness statements, depositions
  • Past medical history
  • Determination of liability
Past and future lost income and medical expenses, round the clock care, multiple surgeries, extensive hospitilization, rehabilitation, typically generate the higher awards, as past and future medical treatment and lost wages for a brain injury can be very expensive. However, ever case is different. Accident victims suffering damage to the brain could require surgery, caregivers, round the clock care for many years or for 6-months. As such, depending on the particular facts of your brain injury case, it can be a multi-million dollar case.

Insurance company auto claims adjusters
After an auto accident, adjusters will begin calling you. They will often encourage you or your family to settle on a fixed amount of damages prematurely, before the true extent of the trauma injuries are known or understood. In order to detemine the extent of your damages, it is crucial that you consult an experienced brain injury attorney who will fight for the highest possible award or settlement.
