The Lingering Symptoms Of Post-Concussion Disorder

Though still not completely understood, post-concussion syndrome has gained wide recognition as a diagnostic label for a wide range of symptoms that occur after concussions. Any impact to the head resulting from a fall, a car accident or a sports injury can result in a concussion or mild traumatic brain injury.

For many patients, the symptoms clear up within a few days or a week. For other patients, they can last for weeks or months. For a few patients, they can last for years. If you or a loved one is experiencing signs of post-concussion disorder, you may be able to file a traumatic brain injury lawsuit against the person or entity responsible. A firm like ours, Shea & Shea - A Professional Law Corporation, may be able to help. Call our San Jose office today at (408) 292-2434.

Recognizing The Signs Of A Potential Problem

Immediately following an accident, a victim may suffer some of the following symptoms:

  • Brief loss of consciousness
  • Severe headache
  • Nausea
  • Sleeplessness
  • Hearing loss
  • Change in taste
  • Change in smell
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Emotional stability
  • Loss of memory

Our team works closely with outstanding neuropsychologists and other forensic experts in order to identify, document and present your damages claims associated with minor head injuries. In many cases, proof of the symptoms of post-concussion syndrome and relating them to a particular cause for which a defendant can be held accountable to you in court can be expensive, due to the extensive testing and involvement of professional specialists who are necessary to support your claim.
