After a car accident involving a brain injury, victims and their families will suddenly find themselves learning a whole new vocabulary and various facts surrounding this type of injury. Most people are not familiar with the extent to which a brain injury impacts daily life until they experience it firsthand. For many victims, pursuing a legal claim against the parties responsible for the accident is necessary in order to help offset the significant financial toll that this type of injury often causes. Determining the appropriate amount of compensation often requires various tests and evaluations done by experienced medical professionals.

Areas Doctors Assess to Evaluate Frontal Lobe Damage

To evaluate the extent of the damage that you may have suffered as a result of the frontal lobe brain injury caused by a car accident, your physician will likely conduct a complete neuropsychological evaluation. He or she will measure the following:

  1. Speech
  2. Motor skills
  3. Social behavior
  4. Spontaneity
  5. Impulse control
  6. Memory
  7. Problem solving
  8. Language

These measurements will provide your medical team with a better understanding of the extent of the damage and help them to recommend a treatment plan to provide you with the best possible recovery from your injuries.

After the extent of the damage you have suffered is better understood, your attorney can assist you in pursuing a claim for compensation.
