$50K Settlement for Concussion Injury (Traumatic Brain Injury)
Last updated Tuesday, May 9th, 2023
You know you generally feel pretty safe when you’re in a big pickup truck, traveling down a country road in Douglas County and Ronnie felt safe on the morning.
He was going to work, with no traffic on the road.
But when a teenage kid came out of a convenience store and t-boned him on the driver’s side, there wasn’t a thing Ronnie could do to protect himself.
Fortunately, Ronnie had his seatbelt on but the unfortunate thing was his head hit the window on the driver’s side. When he went to the emergency room the doctor said he had a concussion. After that, Ronnie try to get on with his life, he saw the chiropractor and had some adjustments, he was generally feeling ok in his neck and back, but the problem was, his headaches didn’t seem to want to go away.
Ronnie didn’t want to talk to a lawyer, but as the statute of limitations started to approach he came in to see me. We were able to file suit, and fortunately, Ronnie got to see a neurologist that was able to treat him and determine that the headaches he was experiencing were migraine headaches that were related to the car accident.
Before Ronnie had seen the neurologist, the insurance company was offering a very small amount of money on his case and it didn’t make sense for Ronnie to settle.
It took almost four years for Ronnie to document the injuries and to fully understand what was happening to him. We settled the case for close to fifty thousand dollars.
I can’t guarantee a result like this in your case, but if you come to see me before you settle with the insurance company, I could give you advice about what may be the best course to take.
