Studies around concussions and brain injuries have been on the rise for the past 10 years, but many unknowns remain when it comes to treating them. Insurance companies have a tendency to delay, devalue and deny claims to protect their profit margin, so claims with “gray area” in terms of what treatments are needed can be hard to settle. Symptoms that are common in the days, weeks and even months after a concussion include:
In addition to getting medical visits approved, concussions can cause additional trouble in terms of filing a claim with the insurance company because the treatments for concussions typically consist of pain medication and activity modifications. Meaning, there’s a lot of “stay out of direct light” and “lay down in a dark room” suggestions that a doctor will make that are not possible for people who are at work. That means that to treat your head injury or concussion, you will likely need additional compensation for missed time at work.
Our experienced injury lawyers can help you deal with the insurance companies, protect your legal rights and ensure that you get the compensation you are entitled to. Part of what an injury lawyer does for you is help measure or quantify your injury. Concussions are very difficult to measure, which makes getting the recovery you deserve difficult as well.
