If you have suffered any type of car accident, a recurring quesion by the insurance company and your medical team will be about whether or not you were unconscious at the accident scene. There are certainly many reasons from a medical standpoint why this is very important to know.
From a legal perspective, if you are unconscious at the accident scene, or in a period of time close to the accident, you may qualify for a higher level of accident benefits.
If you have a Glasgow Coma Scale of 9 or below that is documented by the paramedics or other medical professionals, your accident may be termed “catastrophic”. People who suffer catastrophic injuries are entitled to a higher level of accident benefits. Glasgow Coma Scale is also referred to as “GCS”.
For example, your medical / rehabilitation benefits increase from $50,000 to $1 Million. Plus, they don’t expire after 10 years. You will also be entitled to the services of a case manager to co-ordinate your rehabilitation.
