If you’ve been injured in an auto accident or have had another injury in which you’ve developed a concussion, and your doctor believes that the accident caused the concussion, you may be able to receive compensation for this as part of a personal injury lawsuit. A concussion is a mild brain injury that is caused by trauma, usually some kind of blow to the head. The soft tissue of the brain can get bruised in such an injury, causing damage to the nerves and blood vessels. Usually, it’s not serious, but if you develop post-concussion syndrome, symptoms can go on for a long time and interfere with your life. A concussion attorney in Seattle, Washington can help your personal injury case by evaluating the case’s merits and presenting them before a judge or jury.
Compensation for Concussion Injury
It is possible to receive compensation for a concussion injury. For this to happen, your doctor must be able to testify that the concussion was caused by the injury related to the accident. When that causal link is made, you will need to carefully outline your symptoms and how they have interfered with your life so that a jury can understand. Insurance companies often deny compensation for concussion injuries because the symptoms may be vague and the causal link difficult to prove. But it’s still possible to receive compensation for pain and suffering if you’ve missed work due to your ongoing symptoms. A concussion personal injury lawyer from a firm like Gosanko, O’Halloran, Lepore PLLC has the expertise and knowledge to be your advocate in this type of case in Seattle, Washington.
