Auto Accident Claims Should Be Revised When TBIs Are Diagnosed
After an auto accident, it’s important to know exactly how much money you’re owed for your or your loved one’s medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. However, you may not know the extent of your injuries right away. It’s not uncommon for victims and their lawyers to begin preparing compensation claims based on injuries that aren’t known yet, especially if they require brain or body scans to detect.
When victims are diagnosed with more severe injuries than they initially thought they suffered, they and their lawyers need to go back to the drawing board when it comes to negotiating with the insurance company. Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) in particular require significant revisions in demand letters, as people who suffered often face a lifetime of disability and impairment. That means big medical bills and lost wages.
At Skolrood Law Firm, our Roanoke brain injury lawyers work hard to help our clients get full compensation. We also know that initial estimates for much money our clients need aren’t always accurate, especially as their injuries progress and symptoms begin to show up. And because of the ever-changing nature of some injuries, we’re ready to keep our clients’ claims up to date based on their latest medical info and diagnoses.
Don’t settle for less money than you’re owed, especially if your future now looks like it will be even more difficult due to a recent crash-related diagnosis. Contact us today for a free consultation.
