Understanding Concussion Injuries
Concussion injuries are a type of brain injury where the head meets with heavy impact. In addition to striking an external object, a concussion can result from the brain hitting against the interior of the skull itself. The result of such an injury can range from minor, short-term effects such as dizziness and vomiting, to trouble with speaking or the inability to concentrate, to more serious consequences such as permanent loss of memory.

Whether caused by a collision involving a car, motorcycle, ATV or bicycle, we possess the experience to effectively negotiate a settlement that will benefit you.
The Reality Of A Concussion Claim
Concussion injuries are challenging to diagnose and treat, and their long-term consequences difficult to predict. Often, they can be diagnosed only symptomatically, rather than by objective evidence from medical tests. Further, treatment and evaluation of such injuries can be expensive and on-going. These challenges can increase the difficulties of prosecuting a claim for concussion injury.
