5 Myths About Concussions by Cincinnati Lawyer

Sunday, October 24th, 2010

There has been more news about concussion in the media. There is more information coming out about how damaging this head injury can be. Here are 5 Myths or Misconceptions about concussions. Educate yourself so you can not only protect yourself if you suffer after a concussion, but also your child, as sports injuries and car accidents are two of the biggest causes of concussions.

1. There must me a blow to the head to cause a concusion. It is not necessary to have a direct blow to the head. The brain can still contact the boney skull even if there is no direct blow to the head.

2. A concussion requires a loss of consciousness. This is totally false. Many cases of concussion can occur even without loss of consciousness.

3. If there is no evidence on MRI or CT a srerious brain injury did not occur. This again is false. You can have a serious brain injury even without such evidence

4. After a concusion you should wait 7 days before returning to sports. At a minimum you must wait 7 days until all the symptoms have cleared. And make sure you get a doctor’s clearance.

5. The symptoms of a concusion will show up immediatley. Although sometimes theis is true some symptoms may take a period of time to show up.

Also when I woke up this morning the Cincinnati Enquirer had a similar article in the paper. Here is the link to their article.

What is Your Back Injury Case Worth -Cincinnati Lawyer

Sunday, October 10th, 2010

If you have a serious back injury caused in a car accident by the fault of another you may wonder what your case is worth. There is no hard and fast answer to that. Let me illustrate by just a few cases I looked up.

1 Hernated disc in back with no surgery and $7000 in medical bills settled for $40,000.00

2 Herniated disc in back with surgery and permanent pain medical bills were $36,000.00 and losr wages $150,000.00 settlement $338,000

3. Herniated disc $10,000.00 in medical bills surgery settlement $63,000.00

4 hernated disc jury verdict $116,000.00

5. herniated disc 4457 in medical bills and $1200 loss wages, settlement $61,000

There are so many variables. All these cases assume that the car accident was the other person’s fault. What you do not know is was there prior injury, was there gaps in treatment, was the car damage significant, were the symptoms consistent and immediate, was there significant pain, was there limitation of activity, did the defennse doctor agree or disagree, was the person injured someone that worked hurt or was a constant complainer that would put off the jury, was the defendant a big company.

All of these facts get taken into account and many more. Each case is different. How does the layperson get a clue as to what their case is worth and whether a settlement is worthwhile. You really can not count on the insurance company to tell you . Why should they. They are your adversary. You really need to find a competent experienced personal injury attorney and place your trust in them.

Here is a video I made on the two biggest mistakes that injury victims make in their evaluation.
