·The costs related to short- and long-term home care not covered by local, provincial or federal government programs.
·Costs you’ve paid out-of-pocket for rehabilitation (again, not covered by insurance).
·Any provable financial losses you’ve incurred due to the TBI and car accident—both past and future.
·Limited losses related to pain and suffering, stress and psychological trauma.
·Your out-of-pocket expenses for home services you’ve been unable to perform, including home cleaning and repairs.
