SETTLEMENT VALUE OF HEAD INJURIES
Valuing Head Injuries in Accident Cases
Head injuries are very common in car accidents. The head and neck are the most vulnerable parts on the body in an accident. Head injuries in accidents have a very wide range of severity. At the lower end of the scale are minor injuries such as concussions (and headaches). On the opposite end of the head injury severity spectrum are traumatic brain injuries. The potential settlement value of a head injury depends almost entirely on what level of this spectrum the injury is on.
