What Are Non-Economic Damages?

Traumatic brain injuries change the victim in the long-term. Depending on which regions of the brain are damaged, the victim may process emotions very differently after the accident. Families often say that traumatic brain injury victims are sometimes completely different people, which can strain a marriage or parent-child relation. When building a traumatic brain injury case, it is important to consider all of the ways that the accident has impacted your family’s overall wellbeing.

For example, a 15-year-old boy from Sandy, Utah fell 30 feet, breaking his femur and suffering a traumatic brain injury. After the victim fell into a coma, medical professionals told his parents that he would never wake. Thankfully, the boy beat the odds, woke from the coma and is now back in high school with the help of an aide. The family deserves to be compensated for the costly treatments and prolonged therapies that he needed to recover.

Furthermore, the victim’s family deserves to be compensated for all of the non-economic damages associated with the injury. Suffering that you cannot quantify is non-economic damage, such as the sleepless nights the parents stayed up worrying about their son, as well as depression or anxiety about the future. A traumatic brain injury changes a family financially and emotionally.
