concussion settlement amounts texas

Suffering a concussion in a car accident can be a traumatic experience, especially if you weren’t at fault.

To make matters worse, trying to determine a post-concussion syndrome settlement value on your own often compounds the stress and the symptoms accompanying your head injury.

That’s why consulting with a skilled personal injury attorney is essential. An experienced personal injury attorney can take the guesswork out of the equation.

Concussions from car accidents are very serious injuries. If you’ve suffered a head injury in a car accident, the Law Office of Aaron Herbert can help you determine your case’s value.

Instead of dealing with insurance companies who may not have your best interests in mind, our team can investigate your case, calculate your damages, and negotiate with insurance companies while you recuperate.  

What Is a Concussion?

A concussion is a mild traumatic brain injury (TBI) in which no obvious brain injury is found, but brain function is impaired.

During a car accident, a concussion can occur when your brain makes contact with the inside of your skull after a bump, blow, or jolt to the head or a hit to the body that causes the head and brain to move back and forth quickly.

This kind of sudden movement can result in the following:

  • Bouncing or twisting of the brain in the skull,
  • Chemical changes in the brain, and
  • The stretching and damaging of brain cells.

Concussions aren’t usually life-threatening but can be serious.

If you hit or torqued your head during a car accident and experienced symptoms such as severe headaches or disruptions in how you think, learn, feel, act, or sleep, seek medical care immediately.

Afterward, a personal injury attorney can help you understand your legal options. 

How Much Is My Concussion Claim Worth?

Every concussion victim’s case is unique. Some car crash victims experience mild concussions with few symptoms, while others suffer life-changing damage.

Because concussions vary so dramatically, it’s difficult to calculate the average settlement for concussions from car accidents.

Numerous factors will affect how much compensation you’re eligible to receive. However, the two main factors are an injury’s severity and the length of time required for it to heal.

Concussion warning signs and symptoms include:

  • Loss of consciousness,
  • Nausea and vomiting,
  • Vision changes,
  • Slurred speech,
  • Extreme drowsiness,
  • Feeling confused or disoriented,
  • Balance concerns and decreased coordination,
  • Seizures, and
  • Emotional and mental health changes.

These symptoms can linger and affect daily life, leading to expenses and damages like medical bills, loss of income from missed work, pain and suffering, and reduced quality of life.

The symptoms, their effect on a victim’s health, and how much a victim has spent and will need to spend on treatment also affect the value of a settlement.

A personal injury attorney will evaluate your symptoms and expenses and assess your prognosis to determine a fair post-concussion syndrome settlement value.
