$750K Settlement for “Mild” Traumatic Brain Injury

head x-ray showing potential for brain injury

Anyone who has experienced the symptoms of a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) can tell you that it feels pretty serious even when it’s considered “mild.” When it comes to head injuries from car accidents, the question is “how long will the symptoms last?” and there’s no easy way to tell. Symptoms like headaches, dizziness, neck pain, mental confusion, fatigue and memory loss can heal within a month, or take up to a year to show significant improvement. (Severe brain injuries can cause lifelong impairment and even death.)

That’s the situation our client was in after a motor vehicle collision that resulted in soft tissue injuries and a mild traumatic brain injury. He was a young professional having headaches, neck pain and back pain, unsure of how long the symptoms would affect his career. 

What makes a head injury case like this difficult is that it can be tricky to prove that the symptoms were a direct result of the injury, and that there are no other possible causes. Headaches, for example, can be a symptom of any number of ailments. A medical specialist must investigate the exact nature and cause of the pain and recommend the best treatment options.

In this particular case, we were able to prove that the car collision affected his current job and prospects for future promotion, securing $750,000.00 in personal injury compensation.

The Center for Disease Control reports that “falls and motor vehicle crashes were the first and second leading causes of all TBI-related hospitalizations (52% and 20%, respectively).” If you or someone you love sustained a head injury in either a car accident or slip and fall accident as the result of someone else’s negligence, contact a personal injury lawyer right away. The attorneys on our team have the experience to get the case settlement you deserve, and we offer a free consultation.
