One of the worst and often most permanent symptoms following a brain injury involves short- or long-term memory loss. When memory loss occurs, it can be difficult for a victim to complete even the simplest household tasks. Oftentimes, the loss of memory is caused by a force blow to the head or from acquired brain injury such as exposure to a toxic substance.In many cases, memory loss, short or long, is not always apparent immediately after an accident occurs. In fact, it can take weeks or months before you or a family member notices the symptoms of short- or long-term memory loss. For this reason, it is crucial that brain injury victims seek a medical evaluation and legal representation right away. At Shea & Shea – A Professional Law Corporation, we can provide you with a free consultation regarding your case. Call (408) 292-2434 today to schedule your appointment.
