When Do You Need a Lawyer?
When you have been injured by someone else’s negligence, the at-fault party will almost always try to evade accountability. This may mean wrongfully blaming you for what happened, which is very upsetting to hear when you are trying to get back on your feet. Fortunately, a lawyer will fight against the at-fault party’s false claims to recover the compensation you deserve. A great one can truly make the difference between winning and losing your case.
At Brown & Barron, LLC, our experienced attorneys will work to maximize your compensation. We remain available to our clients 24/7, as we guide them through every step of the legal process:
- Case preparation: Our team will help you prepare your case from the ground up, setting down a strong foundation. We will investigate the accident/incident, assess damages, and make sure legal deadlines are met.
- Settlement negotiations: We will represent you in settlement negotiations with the liable party, working to obtain a favorable settlement for you.
- Litigation: If the liable party refuses to pay you what you deserve, we are equipped to take the case to trial.
How a Concussion Can Impact Your Life
The symptoms of a concussion can make day-to-day life difficult, as they include but are not limited to:
- Brain fog
- Trouble communicating
- Light and sound sensitivity
- Ringing in your ears/tinnitus
- Nausea and vomiting
- Blurred vision
Many people who have concussions must take time off work or school, or at the very least, have accommodations until they have healed. In such a fast-paced culture, it is easy to feel as though you are falling behind—the extra cost of medical care and lost wages may also make it impossible to keep up with your monthly bills. This can be particularly frustrating when another’s negligence caused the concussion.
Negligence in Concussion Injury Cases
A person can sustain a concussion in a wide variety of accidents and incidents. A few common scenarios for which a negligent party may be to blame include:
- Auto and truck accidents
- Bicycling accidents
- Workplace accidents
- Slips, trips, and falls
- Playing sports or during other recreational activities
Concussions Are Often Misdiagnosed
According to a study in the American Journal of Emergency Medicine, about 16% of concussions are misdiagnosed in the emergency room. Patients with concussions were more likely to be misdiagnosed if they were involved in a motor vehicle collision, one of the most common causes of concussions. Per the study, a concussion misdiagnosis was more common among patients who had a long stay in the ER or sought treatment at a non-academic ER.
Concussion misdiagnosis is a major problem. As mentioned, the longer a concussion goes untreated, the worse it may get. If you have reason to believe you have been misdiagnosed, do not wait to get a second opinion from a qualified doctor.
