Post-Concussion Syndrome Settlement Value

Any brain injury can be devastating, and more evidence has been discovered that even a mild concussion can lead to long-term effects, especially if someone suffers several concussions close together. A concussion can occur in a car accident, assault, in a sporting event, or on the job. No matter how you suffered a concussion, it is important to understand post-concussion syndrome settlement value in Ontario.

How is Post-Concussion Settlement Value Defined in the Legal Sphere?

Concussions are the most common brain injury in the world, affecting more than 42 million people each year. Although most are considered mild, they can still cause damage that may exist even years down the road. Post-concussion syndrome disorder is when symptoms from a concussion exist longer than the expected time for recovery. This can lead to disability if the symptoms are severe. A lawyer will use the severity of the symptoms to determine what is an equitable settlement for your post-concussion symptoms that continue longer than they should.

Legal Process to Sue for Damages

It is possible to sue for damages if you are suffering from post-concussion symptoms. The first step in filing a lawsuit is to speak to a lawyer who understands the ramifications of this syndrome. Even if you have no other injuries, it is possible to sue for your continued symptoms. Keep in mind that the process can be more difficult as a concussion often leaves no scars or visible signs in the brain. You will want to speak to your doctor about any symptoms you have so that they can be part of your medical record.

Symptoms may include:

  • Dizziness
  • Headaches
  • Inability to perform common tasks
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Loss of memory
  • Nausea
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Unusual fatigue

Provide your lawyer with any medical records your doctor has documented. Your lawyer will then take the steps necessary to begin filing a lawsuit on your behalf. Who is charged in the lawsuit will depend on how you were injured. If it is a car accident, they may file a suit against the other driver or the manufacturer of your car. In a sporting event, it may be the school or organization that put on the event. You will need to prove that your injury was someone else’s fault and that the other person’s negligence caused your injury as part of the post-concussion syndrome settlement value.

What Rules, Laws, Etc. Concern Post-Concussion Syndrome and How Does it Affect a Case?

As with a physical injury case, the courts will look at whether there was any negligence on the part of the person who caused the accident. They will then determine if that negligence led to your injury and whether you were at all at fault for the concussion you suffered. Your case will be more difficult if you don’t follow your doctor’s orders or if you don’t seek medical attention immediately after the accident. Documenting your injury and symptoms will also be necessary since it can be difficult to prove you are suffering from the lingering effects of a concussion.

Typical Settlement Amounts

Settlement amounts can vary widely. The post-concussion syndrome settlement value will likely be determined by how severe your injuries are and whether it is possible you are permanently disabled. The average post-concussion syndrome settlement value in Ontario ranges between $20,000 and $80,000, although there have been settlements that are much higher. In cases where a concussion was determined to be moderate to severe, settlements could be upwards of $125,000. A business owner in
his 40s received a $1.1 million settlement after a car accident while a man accidentally shot outside a bar received $250,000.

Why You Need a Lawyer

Proving that you are suffering from post-concussion syndrome disorder can be difficult. Although you may have significant documentation from a doctor, only a lawyer can help you navigate through the legal system and fight for your rights under the law. A head injury lawyer can advise you on what steps to take to prove your case, help you find the right medical attention, and will fight to be sure you get the compensation you deserve under the law.

I'm so happy I chose David as my lawyer. I spoke to a few lawyers before finding David and I noticed majority of them spoke to me in a way that felt demeaning or that my case wasn't big enough or important enough to take. One phone call with David and my opinion on lawyers changed. He spoke to me as an equal and made me feel as if my case was definitely important and that I deserved to be fairly compensated. The whole process was wonderful. From dealing with David's law clerk Ingrid whom is an amazing and kind woman to his legal assistant Melissa whom is another amazing kind and talented young woman. I was so stressed about this case but from day 1 they helped ease that stress and always answered all my questions promptly and respectfully. I couldn't believe David got me to mediation within 6 months of being cut off my LTD and got me a settlement way beyond my expectations. I can't say enough good things about this law firm but I guarantee you that if you need a lawyer to fight for you David is your guy! . Believe me when I say this is the law firm for anyone dealing with personal injuries especially LTD denial claims. Thank you so much to David, Ingrid and Melissa you truly don't know how much I appreciate all you did for me and how this will help me get back on track with my life. Keep helping others you guys are doing amazing work! I wish you all the best!

I sustained a relatively painful injury, affecting me long term.I wouldn't otherwise had pursued it, as it involved a relatively large corporation, but felt it necessary to do so. However, many lawyers were daunted, with one, who actually referred me to HIMPRO.I was connected with Dan Holland, who reviewed the case, provided with me realistic expectations, sound advice and had a willingness to move forward and represent me.His calm and professional demeanor, brought me to a place of reassurance. His ease in addressing all facets of this process, clearly demonstrated a wealth of experience. There was never any hesitation, when being challenged, and felt my best interest was always in the forefront.This case has since been resolved, to my complete satisfaction.Without reservation, HIMPRO (and Dan Holland, in particular), would be the only firm I would recommend for these type of cases.
