Utah Concussion Lawyers
Information posted on the Mayo Clinic's Web site is clear and succinct: "... every concussion, no matter how mild, injures your brain." In recent years, understanding of the potential long-term impact of concussions has increased, but it remains essential to take any head injury seriously when you feel or observe symptoms such as confusion, amnesia, severe headache or vomiting.
After an accident with multiple injuries, the treating doctor does not always recognize and diagnose concussion. In some cases, medical providers miss an even more serious traumatic brain injury. Symptoms may worsen in the days and weeks after the injury, and monitoring the injured person is important. If you, your child or another loved one has suffered a concussion or other brain injury due to someone's negligence, contact our lawyers today.
Concussions And Post-Concussion Syndrome Can Have Serious Consequences
Recognition of the seriousness and duration of post-concussion syndrome is also on the rise — and it is now commonly accepted that repeated head injuries can have an exponential effect on victims' brains and lives. It is crucial to seek medical attention for anyone experiencing post-traumatic amnesia, personality changes, severe or persistent headaches or certain other troubling symptoms consistent with post concussion syndrome.
If you believe your condition was caused by someone else's mistake or careless behavior, it is also important to seek skilled, trustworthy legal counsel. At Elegal, we have a track record of success in personal injury cases arising from a wide range of events including:
