Concussions and Insurance Law
Cary N. Schneider, Partner, Schneider Law Firm

A concussion is the most common type of mild traumatic brain injury and often has serious consequences that are frequently not managed properly. Unfortunately, concussions are hard to diagnose, difficult to appreciate, and not well understood.

In the accident benefits world, a properly diagnosed concussion takes a claimant outside of the minor injury guidelines. In the tort regime, the existence of post-concussive symptoms have been influential in finding that a claimant has suffered a threshold injury and entitlement to damages.
