When Tragedy Strikes

Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) often occur as the result of a motor vehicle accident. They can cause people to lapse into coma and suffer from functional or cognitive deficits and in some cases can be fatal.

  • Slurred speech

Expert Help in Dealing with Insurance Companies

Insurance companies will often try to settle cases involving serious motor vehicle accidents as quickly as possible. While it may appear that they’re doing this to help you and your family, you should know that they may have ulterior motives. Insurance companies are aware that a family may be in need of money quickly to help care for the injured person and pay medical expenses. But the reality is that, because a TBI may not be diagnosed until weeks or months after an accident, they are offering an expeditious settlement to protect themselves from compensating you for any problems which may arise in the future.

The Snow Law Firm doesn’t work for the insurance companies. They work for you and your family. Attorney Steven Snow recommends that you not accept an initial settlement offer until you know the full extent of your injuries. By going to follow-up appointments and undergoing appropriate diagnostic testing, your physician will be able to recognize and treat a TBI, and determine if you may suffer any lasting effects as a result of the accident.
