Traumatic Brain Injury FAQs
How Can I Tell The Difference Between Traumatic Brain Injury And Concussion?
Firstly, traumatic brain injury is abbreviated as TBI whereas concussion is often abbreviated as mTBI (mild traumatic brain injury). In order to tell the difference between traumatic brain injury and concussion, you need to carefully review the symptoms. Major traumatic brain injury symptoms include agitation and irritability; coma; convulsions or seizures; damaged coordination; slurred speech, and trouble concentrating. On the other hand, major concussion symptoms include depression; fatigue; headaches; light and noise sensitivity; nausea, and trouble concentrating.
What Traumatic Brain Injury Symptoms Exist?
As previously mentioned, major traumatic brain injury symptoms include agitation and irritability; coma; convulsions or seizures; damaged coordination; slurred speech, and trouble concentrating. Signs and symptoms of traumatic brain injury typically reveal themselves right after a serious accident takes place. Nevertheless, some symptoms are delayed and can show up in the hours and days following an accident. In the aftermath of a serious personal injury, it’s important that family members and your immediate support network provide care and keep a running log of your symptoms. This way, they can be accurately escalated to both a doctor and a team of personal injury lawyers like De Rose.
In What Circumstances Can I Submit A Traumatic Brain Injury Claim?
It’s important to recognize the circumstances in which you can submit a traumatic brain injury claim. Ultimately, your traumatic brain injury must’ve been caused either in part or completely due to another individual’s negligence. The most common causes of traumatic brain injury include distracted and impaired driving; poor municipality road maintenance; inadequate safeguards and procedures, and failure to meet Occupiers’ Liability standards.
After Brain Injuries From Car Accidents, What Timelines Should I Be Aware Of?
There are some important timelines to be aware of when it comes to brain injuries from car accidents. Firstly, you have two years from the date of your injury to file a traumatic brain injury lawsuit. On the other hand, if your traumatic brain injury was the fault of a municipality, a municipality must be notified of your lawsuit within 10 days of the accident date. In regards to the latter, this short deadline makes it even more important to liaise with a traumatic brain injury lawyer immediately.
Elsewhere, for car accidents, you have 60 days to provide written notice of your claim and 7 days to inform your accident benefits insurance company. When you receive an accident benefits application from your insurance company, you have 30 days to complete and submit it. Lastly, when your insurance company submits a request for information, you have 10 days to provide the information they’re looking for. If you delay, your insurance company can suspend or block your benefits.
Why Should I Hire A Brain Injury Lawyer?
The path to compensation can be long and complex. In Ontario, you must bring a lawsuit within two years of the date of the accident. The statutory accident benefit care insurer is to be notified within 7 days of the date of the accident. Limitation dates are exceptionally complicated. If not met, you can be precluded from either contract or tort compensation. In addition, the legal process is exceptionally complicated. It’s important that your brain injury lawyer has the experience and the financial resources to protect your family’s legal rights and remedies.
