TBI or Concussion Personal Injury

Why is it critical to be correctly diagnosed and treated for a concussion?

A leading cause of traumatic brain injuries (TBI) and concussions is auto accident collisions, causing moderate to severe property damage. Unfortunately, traumatic brain injuries are often overlooked by ER physicians, primary care doctors, and orthopedists. Without treatment, concussion symptoms can continue for months or years, causing a traumatic disruption in the life of the concussion victim.

Are traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) and concussions often overlooked by doctors?

Yes. A recent study by Emory University Hospital found that concussions were not diagnosed in the ER about 62% of the time. If these brain injuries are not diagnosed, patients are not getting the treatment needed to recover correctly from these life-altering injuries. Concussion studies have further revealed that someone is at a 2.5 times greater risk of developing dementia in their lifetime if they have suffered a concussion. Concussions also significantly increase the risk of stroke and often begin a long degenerative decline in the cognitive abilities of the concussion victim.

Is it essential to hire an experienced TBI lawyer?

Yes. Many attorneys do not know how to handle personal injury cases involving concussions and TBIs. The good news is that the TBI and concussion lawyers at the Griffin Law Firm have a track record of significant settlements for clients suffering from brain injuries. It is not uncommon for concussion injury claims to settle for the policy limits, often of $25,000 to $500,000.
