But, I Seemed Okay Right After the Accident

Posted on Nov 14, 2012 By Mark Leeds

One of the most frustrating things for Portland residents who have suffered a brain injury is for an insurance company to question or doubt the extent of the damage that has been done and the impact that it has had on the patient’s life. The best way to combat that kind of frustration and to get the financial compensation that justice demands is to retain the services of an accomplished lawyer with a successful history of winning brain injury cases.

A brain injury often presents particular issues for insurance examiners because it is not uncommon for a moderate to mildly severe brain injury to initially go misdiagnosed or under-diagnosed, especially if the person first received care in the ER. Such failure on the part of the emergency room medical team is understandable when one considers the fact that often, accident victims present with seemingly more urgent needs, such as broken bones or deep lacerations. Another factor that makes brain injury diagnosis so difficult is the fact that in many cases, symptoms from a brain injury are not present at the outset and do not become apparent until swelling in the brain increases in the days following the accident.

When you are suffering the results of an accident, however, the reasons behind not getting the compensation you deserve do not make the frustration any less stressful. Portland brain injury lawyer Mark J. Leeds will work assiduously to ease that frustration. Mark knows how to advocate on your behalf and to work with your doctors so that the insurance companies can understand the seriousness of your injury and the costs associated with your recovery.
