I got a concussion from an auto accident – is that considered a serious injury for claim purposes?
A concussion is considered a mild traumatic brain injury. Any traumatic brain injury is serious enough to file a personal injury claim. If you are suffering from pain sustained from an accident and the injury has caused an interference with work losing income, you have a serious enough injury to pursue a claim. It’s possible for the victim of a concussion to sustain serious cognitive issues preventing the injured person from working or even from having the capacity to live on one’s own. Thus, if you or a loved one has sustained a concussion due to an auto accident, it is in the individual’s best interest to contact a personal injury attorney to discuss further legal options.
