There is no average settlement for a head injury. Several factors can impact a settlement for this type of injury. The severity of the damage caused by the accident that led to the injury is often considered a primary area of concern. In addition to this, settlement amounts are often impacted by the role of a liable party and their insurance policy. Settlements require detailed investigations and negotiations between parties in most cases.
If you or a loved one suffered a head injury in a car accident or a similar incident, a lawyer from our firm who focuses on these types of cases can defend you. Not only will your lawyer assess your eligibility for a settlement, but they will also negotiate to obtain any amounts you may be owed.

Pursuing Potential Financial Compensation for a Head Injury
As information from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality points out, adults and children who suffer a traumatic brain injury are at risk for a wide range of health complications. Among them, behavioral changes, depression, anxiety, and impaired neurologic function all take their toll on a victim’s health and well-being.
When a victim suffers a traumatic brain injury from the reckless actions of another party, they often take on large medical expenses for their treatment. Surgeries, X-rays, and other medical procedures can quickly add up in cost. However, if another party’s actions were responsible for a head injury, the victim should not be stuck paying for their medical treatments.
Recoverable Damages in a Head Injury Case
You may be eligible to collect monetary compensation when you suffer a head injury in an accident caused by another party. Some potential forms of compensation that you may qualify for include coverage of the following expenses and losses:
- Pain and suffering
- Lost income and wages
- Diminished earning capacity
- Surgeries and procedures
- Physical therapy
- Rehabilitation services
- Prescription medication
- Emotional and psychological suffering
- Property damage
Working with One of Our Lawyers on Your Case
As the statute of limitations detailed in Florida Statutes §95.11(3)(a) shows, when you experience a personal injury in an accident in the State of Florida, you have the right to take legal action as a victim. However, you must be aware of the fact that you can only do so within a limited amount of time under state law. You generally have four years to file a personal injury lawsuit.
To avoid potential pitfalls from laws and statutes such as these, it is best to get in touch with a legal team right away after you are involved in an accident in Florida.
We Need Plenty of Time to Build a Strong Case
When one of our lawyers is on your side, they begin by investigating the incident in detail. As part of their investigation, your lawyer will collect various pieces of evidence to create a more detailed picture of the incident. Your lawyer will also assess the relevance of any local, federal, and state laws that may impact your case.
If you suffered head injuries or other losses, your lawyer will also take these into account as they communicate with other parties and establish liability. Your lawyer will then negotiate with other drivers, insurance agents, and anyone else connected to your circumstances. You may be owed compensation, and your attorney will fight to collect it. Along the way, they will provide you with updates.
