The Help You Need When It's More Than 'Just A Bump On The Head'
Concussions have gotten a great deal of attention in the media recently, as the NFL and other sports organizations have been forced to address the growing evidence that these injuries can have permanent effects on victims. Recent research has made it clear that concussions, especially repeated concussions, cause long-term health problems that include loss of brain function, memory issues and difficulty concentrating.
If you have suffered a concussion due to another party's negligence, you are probably concerned about how the injury will affect you in the long term. At Vititoe Law Group, in Southern California, we can help ensure your injuries receive the full medical attention they require.
Our lawyers have extensive experience with concussion cases. We not only recognize the symptoms, we know how to assess the total impact of the damage over your lifetime. We use this information to pursue compensation for your medical bills, ongoing care concerns and emotional losses.
If you have sustained a concussion in an accident caused by negligence, you have the right to hold the person or entity responsible for that accident accountable.
Causes And Symptoms Of A Concussion
While most concussions are caused by an impact, they can also occur when the head is shaken violently, for instance, in a car accident. Concussions are associated with a loss of consciousness but this doesn't always occur, which means that you may have sustained a concussion in an accident but not know it.
Many people with concussions notice the symptoms long before they realize they have been concussed. Speak to a doctor if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms:
- Neck pain
- Ringing in the ears
- Feeling dazed or not yourself
- Trouble walking or sleeping
- Slurred speech
Our attorneys will work with medical experts to determine how this injury will affect you and your family now and in the future. We assemble a team tailored to your situation, including accident reconstruction experts to prove fault on the part of the person or organization that caused your accident. We may work with other law firms to ensure that you have the best representation possible. Our goal is to help you to have a good quality of life after your accident.
