A person who slips on the ice or snow this winter might fall in a way that they hit their head on the ground. This might lead to a brain injury that can be minor, such as a concussion, or more serious, such as global brain damage. These cases must be handled properly because there are many unknowns about a brain injury.
There is a chance that you won’t know that you suffered a brain injury at the time of the fall. You might feel fine right then but start having symptoms of this problem in the next few days or weeks. If this happens, resist the temptation to ignore them. Any signs of a problem, such as a persistent headache or dizziness, should be evaluated by a medical professional right away.
The care you need might be involved and long-term. This can be costly, but we are here to help you seek compensation from the party that is liable for the fall. By seeking compensation, you are working to reduce the financial impact you have to deal with due to the incident. We realize that you might not feel up for this process, but we are here to help you exercise and protect your rights.
One thing to remember about these accidents is that the victim shouldn’t be left with the financial responsibilities. Some entities will have insurance that covers the damage related to your brain injury, and others might have to dig deep into their pockets to compensate you. Even if you need money quickly, try not to accept a lowball offer. These will usually end with you having to cover many expenses yourself. Instead, let us work on your behalf to get a settlement that adequately covers the losses you have from the incident.
