At Carlson & Dumeer, LLC, we are proud to represent injury victims and their families in their personal injury claims. We understand the impact that a devastating injury can have on all aspects of a person's personal and professional life, and we are continuously fighting for just compensation as insurance companies regularly engage in vigorous attempts to devalue claims.
In a recent personal injury case, our client was injured in a slip and fall on ice outside of a drycleaner. She principally suffered a concussion, which resulted in a traumatic brain injury that caused her to suffer confusion, vertigo, and other cognitive impairments.
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) occurs when an external mechanical force causes brain dysfunction. TBIs typically result from a violent blow to the head, or a sudden jolt to the body. A TBI can cause a wide range of symptoms, including memory problems, confusion, difficulty concentrating, and vertigo among others.
The head injury caused our client to suffer from vertigo, which is a sensation of spinning. Vertigo is usually caused by an inner ear problem and is often associated with a traumatic brain injury.
People with vertigo often feel as if they are spinning, swaying, or being pulled to one direction. Other symptoms include nausea, abnormal jerking of the eye (nystagmus), and ringing in the ears.
Our client was a banker who received a large portion of her compensation in the form of bonuses. We were able to creatively argue that even though she didn't lose any income, she needed to be compensated for her lost bonus revenue due to the traumatic brain injury.
The insurance company disputed both liability and benefits, however, the case ultimately settled for $195,000 on the eve of the trial.
