How long will my TBI case take to complete?
The question often comes up involving concussions or traumatic brain injuries, how long is it going to take to resolve my claim or my loved one’s claim? Just the other day one of our attorneys was discussing that with a potential client who asked that very question. The attorney explained and said the very first thing is getting the proper diagnosis. That’s where most doctors miss it. The statistics show that more than 50% of all concussions are missed at the emergency room. Even some of the most sophisticated tests out there will miss many concussions because the best we have available is not 100% foolproof. There are so many times that concussions are missed.
Even when they’re diagnosed, most doctors have no treatment. They say what’s the point of diagnosing it if you can’t offer any treatment? You just make the patient depressed. The most important thing, as the attorney explained, is to get the proper diagnosis done by the top experts. Then it switches over to what’s the most effective treatment.
That’s an area that our attorneys, because we understand this area so well, can tell you that there’s not one silver bullet, not one magic answer for everybody. If there was, we would just give it to you right now. We’re aware of the options. We’re aware of what’s worked best for our clients in the past in this situation, when there’s a different diagnosis than this one. Quite frankly, we work with our clients and have them try everything that’s been proven to help.
Sometimes it might be hyperbaric oxygen therapy. That’s where you get in a tank and you have oxygen that’s pressurized. Another one, which is related to that, is exercise with oxygen therapy. They hook you up to a big bag of oxygen, you’ve got a mask on, and they put you on a treadmill or an exercise bike and you do that for 20 minutes.
There are all kinds of stress testing where they stress the brain. It’s kind of like exercising an arm, increase the blood flow. Then it promotes healing. People, of course, have heard of other things like biofeedback. They do a good job, but they don’t do a great job. They can diagnose and give a few treatments. Then they say you’re done. No, they’re not done. They’re just starting.
What’s the most important if you’ve suffered a concussion or a traumatic brain injury? Is it get a check for $10,000 tomorrow and live a life of hell for the rest of your life or get the best treatment available, which ends up getting you a lot more money than trying to just grab a check and run and suffer the rest of your life? We focus on getting you better with the best treatments available. We’re talking about cutting edge interventions. Then after that we get you the most money that you deserve.
