How Do Head and Concussion Injuries Typically Occur?
Although you can experience a concussion or serious head injury in any number of ways, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that traumatic brain injuries occur most frequently due to falls, strikes from falling objects, and motor vehicle accidents.
Concussions occur when a blow or sudden jolt causes the brain to move or shake inside the skull.
Concussions frequently happen due to sports-related injuries and recreational activities. In fact, the Brain Injury Research Institute (BIRI) reports that sports and recreation activities cause as many as 3.8 million concussions occur each year in the United States. Often, these injuries can occur due to defects in protective gear or faulty fitness equipment. Dangerous recreational vehicles, such as ATVs, go-karts, and dirt bikes, can also cause concussions.
If you or a loved one experienced a head injury that occurred due to a defective product or someone’s negligence, you potentially have a claim for compensation. To pursue that claim, we must prove liability for your injuries.
How Does a Lawyer Establish Liability for a Head or Concussion Injury?
Because you can sustain a serious head injury in a variety of settings, the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine approaches each case based on its unique facts.
If you sustained a concussion or head injury in a car accident, for example, establishing liability for the accident will also establish fault for your injuries. Likewise, establishing liability for injuries sustained in a truck accident, motorcycle accident, or premises liability incident requires proving the cause of the injury.
To accomplish this, our legal team will build your claim around the Florida negligence standards. This means we will establish that the at-fault party owed a duty of care to you, they breached their duty, and you sustained a serious head injury as a result.
We will employ our network of resources, including investigators, accident reconstruction specialists, and medical experts, to document the facts of your case and demonstrate who has liability for your injuries.
What Kind of Settlement Can I Expect for My Concussion or Head Injury Claim?
The dollar amount of your head injury or concussion claim will depend on the type of injuries you experienced and the extent of the damage the at-fault party caused.
Typically, we will include all your expenses and damages to date along with projected expenses for the future. This may include the following items:
- Expenses related to medical treatment and care;
- Doctor and hospital bills;
- Medication and medical equipment costs;
- Projected future medical care costs;
- Rehabilitation and physical therapy;
- Mental health treatment;
- Lost wages to date;
- Projected lost income;
- Projected loss of earning capability;
- Pain and suffering; and
- Lost life enjoyment.
Head and concussion injuries can affect your life in a variety of significant ways. Victims may have trouble with cognitive tasks and memory. They may experience headaches, blurry vision, dizziness, and problems with balance. Anxiety, nervousness, and emotional disruption can also result from a head injury. In the most serious head injuries, victims can undergo permanent personality changes, lose their ability to have close personal relationships, and even lose their ability to hold a job.
When our legal team calculates your head injury claim, we will also include a dollar value for any long-term or permanent disability you sustained.
Why Do I Need a Lawyer?
Building a claim for compensation is challenging, and engaging in negotiations with the at-fault party’s insurance company can be difficult for victims to handle themselves. Our attorneys can handle these processes for you while you recover.
Insurance companies often seek to pay out the lowest possible settlement. The insurer in your case might make a lowball offer early in the negotiations, with the goal of getting you to sign away your rights to further compensation in exchange for a quick payout. We have also seen insurers challenge the validity of these claims, since some types of head injuries are harder to substantiate than others.
At the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine, we specialize in helping personal injury victims get the compensation they need to put their lives back on track. We protect your legal rights and represent you in all interactions and negotiations with the insurance company to ensure you receive fair treatment.
If we need to file a lawsuit to win you compensation, our legal team will build a persuasive and well-documented case.
