Tampa Car Accident Concussion Lawyer

Safety features in vehicles such as headrests and airbags are all meant to protect your face, neck, and brain in the event of a car accident. Still, brain injuries such as concussions are one of the most common injuries seen after a car accident. Florida’s no-fault insurance laws pose a challenge for those that want to file a lawsuit against the negligent party after a crash. A Tampa car accident concussion attorney can advise you of your rights, and help you claim the full settlement you deserve.

Our Tampa Car Accident Concussion Attorney Explains the Symptoms of a Concussion

The symptoms of a concussion do not always appear right away and even when they do, they are often very subtle. As such, it is crucial to know the signs and symptoms of a concussion to make sure you receive the proper medical treatment. If a paramedic is at the scene, it is important to get checked out by them and to follow any recommendations they provide, even if it means going to the hospital. Concussions are a form of traumatic brain injury, which must be treated with the utmost care.

Dizziness, tiredness, and nausea are just some of the symptoms you may experience after suffering a concussion in a car accident. You may even lose consciousness and if that is the case, you may not even remember it and have to rely on eyewitness statements.

If you have trouble remembering, thinking, or concentrating after the crash, your injury may be more severe. A severe concussion may have long-term effects such as issues with walking, memory, cognition, and mood swings. A severe concussion could result in ongoing medical care and months, or even years, of rehabilitation.

A Tampa Car Accident Concussion Attorney Can Help You File a Lawsuit

Florida’s no-fault auto insurance laws generally limit a person’s ability to sue negligent parties after a crash. However, if your injuries and other losses exceed $10,000 in value, you can file a lawsuit against the negligent party. This is often more beneficial than recovering compensation through personal injury protection (PIP), as you can claim damages such as pain and suffering, which are not available through PIP coverage.

Even if your injury and other losses do not exceed $10,000, you may still be able to file a lawsuit if you can show that your injury is permanent. For example, if your concussion results in long-term cognitive problems, you may still be able to file a lawsuit against the liable party. Also, if surgery or excessive bleeding caused scarring or disfigurement, you can also file a lawsuit to claim damages.

Our Tampa Car Accident Concussion Attorney Can Advise on Your Case

Concussions are not minor head injuries, and they should not be treated as such. If you have been hurt in a crash, our Tampa car accident concussion attorney at The Matassini Law Firm, P.A. can advise on the options available in your case, and help you claim the maximum damages you deserve.

The resources to provide quality representation for the length of your case

Whether your case involves medical malpractice, an auto accident or a wrongful death, your attorney must be prepared to take the case all the way through trial to verdict. Many personal injury attorneys advance the cost of litigation, so they can only last so long before financial pressures start to mount. As a client, you have to wonder whether an attorney's advice to settle your case reflects the quality of the offer or your attorneys need to get paid. Fortunately, The Matassini Law Firm has the resources to pursue civil verdicts and settlements that reflect the actual value of your case.
