Legal Representation for Victims of Concussions
The most prominent myth about concussions is that people lose consciousness when they get them. In reality, many people who suffer a concussion remain conscious, feeling dazed. The symptoms of the concussion may not appear immediately. When symptoms do appear, they may linger for a significant period of time in the form of post-concussion syndrome.
If you or a loved one has suffered a blow to the head in an auto accident or any other type of accident, it is important to consult a doctor as soon as possible. Early intervention can make a big difference. Early legal intervention can also make a big difference, if the concussion was the result of an act of negligence.

When Concussion Symptoms Linger or Worsen
Some concussion victims are lucky in that their brain heals and their symptoms go away in a matter of weeks. They do not have to pursue legal action. Unfortunately, there are those whose symptoms linger or even get worse. In some cases, a blood clot may form in the brain, which could lead to wrongful death. Our concussion injury attorneys represent individuals and families who have sustained lasting damage because of an accident-related concussion.
Working With Experts in Concussion Cases
The fact that concussions do not always show up on brain scans presents an interesting challenge. The opposition will not want to pay for an injury they cannot see. We must bring in experts to make it clear just how serious the injury is. We want you to get the proper treatment and full compensation to cover that treatment and more.
