Nashville Concussion Attorneys
Of the 1.7 million traumatic brain injury victims every year across the United States, roughly three out of four suffer a concussion. These injuries occur as a result of a blow to the head that violently jars the brain as it strikes the skull. Concussions can be very serious and can cause a number of symptoms and effects that range in severity from a headache to loss of consciousness.
If you or someone you love has suffered a traumatic brain injury due to the negligence of another party, it is important to seek immediate medical attention. Once you have obtained proper care, it may be in your best interest to consider taking legal action against the responsible party. Contact the Nashville concussion lawyers of Pohl & Berk, LLP, at 615-277-2765 to learn more about your options.
Signs of a Concussion
Concussions can be hard to immediately diagnose because of the lack of outward symptoms or signs. Unlike a bruise or a cut, there is not visible bruising or bleeding. And while every concussion case is different, some common effects include the following:
- Loss of consciousness
- Loss of short-term memory (especially about the accident)
- General feeling of fatigue
- Ringing in ears and sensitivity to light or sound
You may have a concussion even if you experience just one of the above signs, and it is important to note that the effects can linger long after an injurious accident.
Do not delay seeking legal counsel and representation when you have suffered a concussion as a consequence of another party’s actions. Contact the Nashville brain injury attorneys of Pohl & Berk, LLP, by calling 615-277-2765 today.
