A catastrophic injury, in which the client cannot speak or take care of himself or herself at all, can be simple to determine. Mild and closed head injuries can be more subtle and require more work by experts to determine exactly what has happened, and how much it will affect your life.
There are a number of problems involved in figuring out the appropriate compensation for a traumatic brain injury. Often you need both neuropsychological assessments and someone to spend hours with your friends and family trying to figure out the changes you have suffered — the changes in personality, lack of ability to deal with anger or stress, and other subtle differences that may be hard to explain or quantify.
Because the brain is complex, it can also take a long time to determine just how much damage has been done and how much recovery will be possible. It can take a lot of work to determine how much your injury will affect the rest of your life.
