Mild Concussions: Advice from an Irvine Personal Injury Attorney

If you have received a mild concussion as a result of being in an accident or being involved in some type of sporting incident, your life may be changed for quite some time. Mild, moderate and severe brain injuries can all be the result, and can linger for days, months, or even years. Sometimes, the effects are permanent.

Part of the life change you can expect is to not feel like yourself. Maybe you just feel a little “off”, or you may have an ongoing, tremendous headache. Symptoms from a mild concussion can range from practically non-existent to quite severe. Most concussions clear up within about 6 months, but what about what happens during those 6 months?

In a current case being handled by our office, our client was travelling south on I-5 and was hit from behind by a heavy duty pickup truck. Lucky just to be alive, our client suffered from internal injuries, which cleared up soon, overall pain and stiffness, extreme exhaustion and a severe concussion. Migraine headaches are now part of his daily life, as is 3 times a week physical therapy sessions, and frequent Dr. appointments.

As a business owner, this client can’t miss out on work, even though it was advised to rest at home for a few weeks. When you own the business, you can’t call in sick. Now, instead of meeting with clients, he spends his time with medical specialists, diagnosing and treating his injuries. Does he have the right to be compensated for his injuries, pain and suffering and lost wages? Of course he does. That is what our office is here to help him with. Is a fast settlement with the insurance company our goal? Not al all.

It has been 2 months since our client was involved in this accident. Luckily, he contacted our office early on and we were able to assist him in obtaining the very best medical care.
