There are many types of brain injures

Brain injuries can be minor bumps on the head or they can be so serious that they cause permanent brain damage. Common types of brain injuries include concussions, brain contusions, coup contrecoup injuries, penetrating brain injuries, and second-impact injuries. In most cases, the more serious the brain injury is, the bigger any economic compensation will be.

Keep in mind that your final compensation will not be based just on the cost of medical treatment but will also be based on the impact the injury has on your life, the life of your family, and your future. As a result, any brain injury that results in long-term treatment, excessive pain, lingering symptoms, or permanent damage is likely to result in the maximum compensation.

The range in available compensation for traumatic brain injuries is wide

One thing you should know going into a brain injury lawsuit is that the range of compensation can be extreme. Take the case of Matthew Jensen v Jonathan Coburn. This case took place in San Diego Superior Court and involved a 20-year-old man who was on the emergency shoulder of the road when a car rear-ended him. The victim suffered from a concussion and a bulging disc. The defendant readily admitted fault and offered to pay $70,000 but the plaintiff took it to trial and was awarded $160,000.

Then consider another San Diego Superior Court case in which a 27-year-old man was third in a five-car line of cars that were stopped. A struck hit the back of the line and all the cars hit each other. The plaintiff in this case suffered from a permanent brain injury and was awarded more than $17 million by the jury.
