When you or another family member suffers injuries due to someone else’s negligence or carelessness, it can be confusing trying to wade through filing an injury claim. It becomes even murkier if you are trying to deal with a traumatic brain injury (TBI) while going through the filing process.
Fortunately, our Hopkinsville traumatic brain injury lawyers are knowledgeable about personal injury and TBIs. Attorney Darryl Isaacs is a TBI survivor. Since his return to work in the legal field, he has earned the nickname “The Hammer.” Our firm proudly serves the citizens of Kentucky, fighting to get you compensation for your injuries.
Our Team Will Estimate Your TBI Case’s Value and Fight for Compensation
There are too many variables to reliably and responsibly tell you a dollar amount for your losses until after we have evaluated your case. Every accident and injury has a unique set of circumstances, so our personal injury team must evaluate each individually.
However, we will work to include every possible compensation opportunity in your claim. The final settlement will be consistent with your actual expenses and losses.
We expect to receive recoverable damages from the defendant on your behalf. These include compensation for economic damages and non-economic damages. Some of the reimbursable compensation is based on your medical expenditures, including current and future expected costs.
Economic compensation is directly related to your expenditures for medical care and other costs directly associated with your accident-related injuries. These may include:
- Medical costs for all care from the accident, including emergency care, doctors, hospitals, ambulances, medical supplies, prosthetics, pharmaceuticals, physical and occupational therapy, specialists, surgery, and medical equipment such as braces, and wheelchairs, crutches, and special beds
- Expected future medical costs cover follow-up care, scheduled procedures, continuing therapy, and medications.
- Lost wages include all current and future salaries, expected promotions, accrued vacation time, bonuses, commissions, and lost business opportunities as they apply to your circumstances.
Non-economic compensation covers the things that money cannot buy as they pertain to your quality of life. Areas of compensation under this category may include:
- Pain and suffering compensates you for continuing pain from your injuries and a lower quality of life due to the pain. Injuries, such as whiplash and TBI, might keep you from returning to many of your favorite activities.
- Emotional and mental anguish compensation is not a replacement for what you may miss after your injury. Still, it allows you to move forward in a different direction with your limited physical capacity.
- Loss of enjoyment/loss of consortium is compensation for things you formerly enjoyed but can no longer do, such as coaching a baseball team. Loss of consortium deals with the strain of maintaining relationships following a catastrophic injury such as a TBI.

Personal Injury Lawsuits Have Timelines Limiting Them
The statute of limitations varies depending on the type of case you face. Per Ky. Rev. Stat. § 304.39-230, you have two years after the date of a vehicle accident to file a lawsuit. Suppose you received an insurance payment. In that case, the two-year time limit begins on the date of your last payment.
For accidents not involving motor vehicles, per Ky. Rev. Stat. § 413.140(1), the statute of limitations is only one year from the date of the accident or injury. This shortened time frame means it might benefit you to promptly discuss your case with a TBI lawyer rather than waiting.

How Long Will It Take To Secure TBI Accident Compensation?
This answer has too many variables to offer a definitive time frame. Some of the factors that serve to shorten or lengthen the time frame include:
- Your injuries and the treatment schedule for your recovery
- Whether liability is contested
- The amount of insurance you will collect
- How in-depth the evidence gathering phase is
- Whether you need specialists for accident reconstruction or expert testimony
- Whether an out-of-court settlement is agreed upon
- The court’s schedule
A case may resolve via out-of-court resolutions within a couple of months with those considerations. Lawsuits that make it to trial can take longer to resolve.
