Let Us help You Get Fair Compensation for Your Suffering
Depending on the severity of your concussion and how it affects your life going forward, you may stand to receive various damages that can cover your economic and non-economic losses.
Potential forms of compensation may include:
- Pain and suffering
- Current and future medical bills, including the cost of hospital stays, surgeries, and long-term therapy
- Lost wages if you missed work while healing from your injuries
- Reduced earning capacity if a permanent disability prevents you from working in the future
- Loss of quality of life
- Home modifications that are required for coping with your injuries
An injury lawyer with our firm can calculate your damages and gather the necessary evidence to pursue a fair recovery. If you lost a loved one due to a head injury in New York, we can also file a wrongful death lawsuit to seek funeral costs, the medical bills your loved one incurred, and other losses.
Making a Claim for a Concussion Injury
If you have been involved in an accident that resulted in a concussion, you may be able to claim compensation for your injury and the resulting pain. However, you will have to prove that someone else was responsible for the accident. You will also need medical evidence to support your claim.
A Doctor’s Testimony
As part of your concussion injury claim, a doctor’s testimony should show:
- That you have suffered a concussion
- Whether or not you have post-concussion syndrome
- That your concussion was the result of an accident
- The symptoms you have testified to have come from your injury
Your testimony on the effects of your injury. The jury will want to hear directly from you about:
- Your symptoms and complaints
- How long your symptoms have lasted
- How disabling your symptoms are
- How your symptoms have generally affected your life
A lawyer with our firm can help prepare your pain and suffering testimony for the jury.
How a Lawyer from Our Firm Can Help You Build a Strong Case
You deserve to rest and recuperate after suffering from a concussion. We can handle the legal process from beginning to end.
Prove Your Injuries Resulted from Negligence
Like other diagnoses, if you have a concussion injury, you may claim damages for that injury as part of your personal injury case, and only if your doctor says that it is as a result of the accident.
We can gather evidence that proves that the injuries you suffered as a result of the accident were caused by the negligent party.
Negotiate with Insurers
When it comes to settling a claim, insurers prefer losses to be obvious, like having a broken arm. However, post-concussion syndrome is not clear, and that means insurers don’t always make a reasonable offer. We can negotiate for fair compensation and prevent you from accepting a settlement that does not address your current and future injury-related losses.
Represent You at a Trial
If negotiations with insurers do not yield a fair offer, we can take your case to court. We can argue your case before a judge or jury. We will present the evidence of your injuries, show how the other party was negligent and that their negligence caused your injuries.
