As we noted in the previous paragraph, you need to prove the other person was negligent, that you have medical proof and that based on your injuries- insurance companies should pay for the economic and non-economic loss.
Often, in traumatic brain injury cases, much of your damages are what is considered a non-economic loss. An economic loss is generally easy to calculate. You add your medical bills, lost wages, and a projection potential future wages if you can no longer work due to disability.
A non-economic loss is more complicated to calculate because there is no bill attached. You reimburse someone for their lifetime loss of short term memory. A court can calculate the lifetime cost of bus fare when you can no longer drive- but what about the loss of independence?
