Can whiplash cause a concussion?

Whiplash can cause a concussion. Usually, you're talking about it with respect to injuries of the head and neck, but it also affects the brain, which is inside the skull. When a person is sitting in a car, they're sitting upright. If they come to a sudden stop, their body continues forward and their head continues forward. The brain continues forward, but then is whipped back and the brain sheers against the inside of the skull.

This movement of the brain inside the skull causes stretching, breaking, shearing, twisting and swelling of the brain tissue and this is the mechanism of injury. It's important for a brain injury attorney to understand the causes of brain injury, how it affects the brain and how it affects you as a human being. How it affects your functioning, why you are no longer able to do what you once were able to do prior to the accident and the complete ramifications to your life.

How do I file a personal injury claim?

A lawsuit is started by filing a complaint, allegations of negligence against the people who committed the acts that you are complaining of that you say caused your injury. After the complaint is filed with the court, it gets served on the defendants usually by a process server. After the initial discovery proceedings, the defendants will ask for information about your medical condition. They will request copies of your medical records, your hospital records. After that, both parties submit to oral questioning called depositions.

They ask you how the accident happened, the nature of the accident, the nature of your injuries and how it's affected your life. The court orders a date to be set for trial at which point the attorneys for both sides prepare their cases for trial. If you’ve had an accident either with a car, or a truck or a bus, it is important for you to contact an attorney right away because there are time limits within which you can bring a lawsuit.

What do I do after a car accident?

What should you do after a car accident depends on whether you're at the scene of the accident or things that you could do later on. At the scene of the accident, obviously, you must stop, you must try to report it to the police as soon as possible and exchange information with the other driver. It's important if you can do it, to take pictures at the scene of damage to your car, damage to the other vehicle. It's important that if you are seriously injured, that you ask the police at the scene to obtain medical assistance for you.

If you leave the scene of an accident and you are not feeling well, then, again, it's important that you obtain medical care as soon as possible. It's also important that you report this accident to your own insurance company as soon as possible to activate necessary benefits that you might have such as no-fault benefits that will pay for your care. I say your insurance company for a very important reason.

It's also important that you not speak to the other people's insurance company. That you don't speak to investigators that might knock on your door and ask you for information or might call you on the telephone. It's important that you consult an attorney without delay to tell you what your legal rights are and to protect those rights. Call us today for a free no obligation consultation. Let us help you navigate your road to recovery following one of these collisions.

What is premises liability?

What is premises liability?

Premises liability is a legal term surrounding a legal obligations of a property owner to a person who is on their property. It involves the injuries that take place when a property owner doesn't properly maintain their premises or their property. In every one of these situations, a property owner is obligated to maintain that building in a reasonably safe condition. That means taking necessary steps to repair problems and also taking those steps necessary to do proper inspections.

We see in these cases, for instance, in apartment building, stairs that are not properly maintained. In office buildings, we see lobbies that are unsafe, doors that are not hinged properly and construction sites, we see unsafe and dangerous equipment.

There are laws to protect the public. In New York state, we have something called the multiple dwelling law that protects tenants in buildings. On construction sites, we have labor laws that provide the general contractor, the owner and any other subcontractors on the premises are obligated to maintain a safe place for construction. If you are injured in a building or a structure outside because of an unsafe condition, we offer free no obligation consultations and we're here to assist you in any way we can.
