Concussions & Traumatic Brain Injuries
A concussion happens when a blow or jolt to the head causes the brain to bounce or twist around inside the skull. This can cause damage to the brain cells and chemical changes in the brain. These injuries can happen during car accidents that may not seem serious. While signs of a head injury may be experienced immediately after the accident, some symptoms may take hours or even days to appear. You should consult a doctor right away, if you have any of the signs of a concussion.
Severe brain injuries may affect:
- Hearing or vision
- Coordination and balance
After a concussion, your doctor will recommend rest to allow the brain to heal. This means you may be unable to work, study, read, or use a computer or other device.
When your injury was caused by another’s actions or negligence, our personal injury attorneys can help you pursue compensation. Your medical records and information from your doctor can be used to support your personal injury claim for lost income and medical expenses.
Some people with concussions will develop post-concussion syndrome with symptoms lasting for weeks or months after the injury. This is most common in people with a prior history of concussions. If you have suffered a concussion, post-concussion syndrome, or a traumatic brain injury, discuss your injury, the circumstances of your accident, and the possibility of pursuing compensation with an experienced attorney. Our Wichita concussion and traumatic brain injury lawyers help victims recover compensation for their injuries.
