    Default Late Discovery of Permanent Brain Damage from Concussion Injuries

    If you suffer concussions, and the concussions are later determined to have caused permanent brain damage, can you avoid the statute of limitations for personal injury cases based upon the discovery rule, in Pennsylvania?

    Default Re: Late Discovery of Permanent Brain Damage from Concussion Injuries

    As is explained in this article, Pennsylvania's discovery rule is complex, and if a plaintiff wants to try to avoid application of the discovery rule based on their late discovery of an injury they had best discuss the details of their case with a lawyer. See, e.g., Crouse v. Cyclops Indus., 745 A.2d 606, 610 (Pa. 2000). If the concussions occurred when the person was a child, the statute of limitations does not begin to run until he or she reaches the age of 18.
