How Does a Concussion Affect the Value of My Case?

When determining the value of your personal injury case, many things will come into play. Economic costs of your injury along with your pain and suffering will be considered. Certain injuries, like concussions, are hard to account for during a personal injury case because it is not always clear how the injury to your brain will affect you.

Concussions, a form of traumatic brain injury, or TBI, occur when the brain moves inside the skull during a trauma such as an accident or impact. The effects of a concussion can last for days or months, in some cases. You could meet with several complications when recovering from a concussion and depending on your circumstance, having a concussion can put you a greater risk in the future should you suffer another TBI. Because of these reasons, concussions can have a minor or potentially major effect on your health. Also, if you have certain pre-existing medical conditions, a concussion can complicate those as well. For these reasons, a concussion has the potential to greatly affect the value of your claim but will not do so in every case. Each case is unique so you will want to consult with an attorney to get a better idea of how a concussion will affect the value of your specific case.

In a personal injury case, a concussion could raise the value of your claim if it required medical treatment, it was particularly severe or if you had lasting concussion symptoms. Most concussions will require some medical treatment or evaluation, but not all will produce severe or lasting symptoms. How your concussion will change the value of your case is hard to say. Speak to an experienced personal injury attorney if you want to get an idea of how you will be compensated for your concussion. A skilled attorney will be able to evaluate your case facts and advise you on what kind of case outcome you should expect. Keep in mind that a jury could be deciding upon your pain and suffering damages, meaning it is ultimately up to them what a fair amount is. If you have suffered a concussion and are now involved in a personal injury claim, it is important you make sure you are compensated for the full extent of your injuries.

Chris Smith

Tom did an excellent job setting up my LLC for my new business recently. I was in a situation where I needed the LLC formed quickly and Tom and his team were able to work on a very short deadline. Highly recommended!

GAAW Wright

Tom has been our attorney for many years. He has been with us through thick and thin. He has successfully handled all our queries and cases with patience and understanding. We highly recommend Tom!

Corey Rennolds

At all times for the duration of my case, Tom demonstrated professionalism, confidence, and honesty. At no point was I pressured to make any one decision over another, but Tom did his best to inform me about the consequences and benefits of all of my options. If he did not know some specific detail regarding my case, he made the effort to find out. Tom instantly exudes trustworthiness and was always in steady contact. I would recommend his services to anyone.

Justina Allen

I met Tom over 10 years ago after settling in Roswell with my family. I have learned over the years that Tom is a man of high integrity, genuine and extremely knowledgeable in his field. Along with being honest, he is a straight shooter and will let you know where you stand. He will provide you with personal attention you don’t get at bigger firms and will go the extra mile. As legal matters can be frightening to deal with, Tom will guide you through the process and get you the results you need.
