As a general rule, what we’re looking for at Colson Hicks Eidson is determining not just the income loss or income earning capacity that’s lost, but making a jury understand how a client with a traumatic brain injury faces their day-to-day life: what they have to deal with that’s different from everyone else, and how they deal with it. The noneconomic damages, which are the intangible damages that a client’s entitled to, are monies that the courts allow the plaintiffs to be awarded for their pain and suffering. And that’s not just physical pain and suffering, but it’s mental and emotional pain and suffering.

There are special experts we work with to help communicate that to a jury, and there are special people who can come in and talk about the day-to-day life of a traumatic brain injured plaintiff. We bring those people in front of a jury to help maximize the recovery to our clients.
