When to Hire A Concussion Lawyer

A concussion is considered a type of traumatic brain injury, and depending on the severity can lead to long-term, serious health consequences. If your life has been impacted by a concussion or other traumatic brain injury that was caused by someone else's negligence (for instance, a car accident caused by a drunk driver), you may have grounds for a lawsuit.Traumatic brain injury can have long-term consequences

A concussion lawsuit can help you to recover damages to help pay for your medical bills, ongoing medical care, prescriptions, pain, and suffering. Call Findlay Personal Injury Lawyers at 905-522-9799 today to schedule your free consultation.

Should You Call A TBI Lawyer?

If your head injury was minor and has not resulted in major medical bills or impacted your life negatively, you probably do not need a lawyer. However, if any of the following are true, you should at least give us a call for a consultation.

  • Your injury resulted in long-term memory loss, personality changes, or headaches
  • You and your family have been emotionally impacted by the injury
  • You are now considered disabled because of your injury
  • You now require live-in assistance due to your injury
  • You cannot work (or your ability to perform your job adequately was compromised) because of your injury
  • Your injury required surgery and/or an extensive hospital stay
  • Your injury required extensive physical therapy

In addition to the above, think about how your accident happened. Who was at fault? Sometimes it is hard to determine fault, as there could have been multiple factors that led to you being injured. A good personal injury lawyer will be able to investigate your accident thoroughly in order to determine all parties at fault.

Common examples of negligence that could lead to concussion include:

  • Drunk or distracted drivers
  • Coaches putting a player back into the game too soon after an initial concussion
  • Unsafe conditions in a store or on someone's property
  • Icy sidewalks that were not cleared in a reasonable amount of time

Why Call A TBI Lawyer?

Our personal injury lawyers will treat you with care and compassion, and will help you not only obtain justice against the at-fault party in your accident but will also help you get the compensation you deserve. Traumatic brain injury can derail your entire life, and while monetary compensation cannot bring back the quality of life you had before your accident, it can help to make your current life more comfortable.

Insurance companies may offer you a settlement, but it will likely be far less than what you actually deserve. If you are the main provider for your family, you need to think about how your injuries will affect your loved ones far into the future. Will the settlement provided by insurance alone keep your family afloat if you are no longer able to work steadily?
