Concussion Injury Lawyers in Charleston

Trust Our Charleston Personal Injury Attorneys

While it may not seem to be a serious injury to the everyday person, concussions can cause drastic, life-altering consequences. These injuries can easily be suffered during an automobile accident, a slip, trip, or fall, or even in a sporting accident. A concussion is generally defined as a brief period of unconsciousness after a blow to the head.

The effects and symptoms that occur after concussions are varied and unique to the individual. The concussion injury can result in damages that range anywhere from discomfort to death. At the time of the brain injury, it is also difficult to determine how long the symptoms may last, and they may even persist for months after the accident or may be permanent.

Symptoms of a concussion include:

  • Lost consciousness
  • Sensitivity to light and sound
  • Dizziness
  • Tinnitus (persistent ringing in the ears)
  • Slurred speech
  • Difficulty balancing or walking
  • Confusion
  • Loss of memory
  • Headaches
  • Depression
  • Epilepsy
  • Altered personality
  • Second-impact syndrome
  • Death

What to Do After a Concussion

It is vital that you do not take a concussion lightly. Seek medical attention as soon as possible and take care to follow the doctor's instructions very carefully. Though each case is different, it is usually best to not watch flashing or quick-moving images on a television screen, do any vigorous activity, or alter your medication dosage-even if you're feeling better. It is also recommended that you rest as much as possible following your serious accident and do not try to return to regular activities.

If you or a loved one suffered a concussion due to the negligence of another person or company, then it is possible that they could be held liable for what happened. With a strong case crafted by our team of Charleston personal injury lawyers, you may be able to recover compensation. This financial recovery could go toward making up for medical expenses, lost wages, and personal suffering. Our team has 95 years combined experience and can put our skills to work to pursue maximum financial recovery on your behalf.
