Brain damage under Tort Law
The trend in the world of personal injury litigation is such that even a slight brush with someone is a cause for a claim against that person. No matter how unreasonable a claim might be, the courts have to listen to anyone, who wishes to exercise his/her right to bring a claim under tort.
However this trend is becoming quite weary for both the courts and the potential defendants, either big multinational companies or a person with little or no means of compensating whatsoever (if your lawyer does recommend you to bring a claim against this poor man then we feel quite deeply for you for wasting your time and money on him), point being that with this problem of annoying bloodthirsty claimants there has come a point in time where the courts and even the legislature keep in mind the case load and validity of a claim when deciding upon a matter and when legislating, respectively.
That being said, what then become’s important is the types of injuries that cannot and are not ignored. Mainly that includes the severity of the injury, and brain damage is on top of that list of those severe injuries that the courts under no circumstances take lightly. The reason for that is the importance of this organ to the anatomy not in the physical sense, but absolutely anything and everything.
The importance is such that it’s the reason we are able to even ask this question. The brain in the human body controls your movements, personality, heart rate, thoughts, emotions, knowledge, your 5 senses, and absolutely anything and everything that comes to mind. It is the thing that makes you who you are and keeps you alive.
Without a brain, you will not function at all. The Human Brain is an absolute necessity and there would be no life without it.
This very brief explanation of the functions of the brain is only provided so as to understand and relate to what entails when one talk or takes brain injury into account. Not only the courts, also the opposing parties i.e. the defendants are more willing to settle with the aggrieved party if brain injury is involved due to the fact that it can be dramatized and rightly so in order to achieve maximum sympathy and thus maximum compensation as well.
Even though the offender might not be at fault still there in court is a high risk of compensation being awarded to the victim due to the condition that the court and the society see’s him to be in.
