Over the past decade, there has been a considerable amount of attention paid to concussions. While the dangers associated with such injuries have always been widely known, many people – from athletes to construction workers – would brush them off as just a "knock on the head". Unfortunately, this has led to countless individuals suffering serious to life-altering damage that only surfaced long after the initial accident occurred. If you, or a loved one, have been involved in an accident and believe you have suffered a concussion as a result, time is most certainly of the essence. We highly recommend contacting the physician and trial lawyers at Cullan & Cullan LLC as soon as possible.

Whether your concussion resulted from a car collision, motorcycle accident, sports injury or work place incident, you will most likely experience symptoms almost immediately. While they can vary from person to person, most individuals experience one or more of the following symptoms:
- Extremely sensitive to light and certain frequencies of sound
- "Blacking out" or a complete loss of consciousness
- Nausea, dizziness, blurred vision and vertigo
- Confusion or short-term memory loss
- Uneven pupils and slurred speech
- Severe headaches or migraines
With that said, in many cases, individuals don’t experience any immediate symptoms at all. These people are left untreated, only to develop severe cognitive distortions and complications later on. Depending on the severity of the problem and degree of negligence involved with the initial accident, you could be eligible for considerable financial compensation. Quite often, concussion accidents are associated with a wide range of expenses such as:
- Transportation to a hospital via ambulance or helicopter
- Emergency medical procedures
- Mental and physical therapy
- Rehabilitative services
- Brain specialist care
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of wages
Concussions can quickly lead to a lifetime of complications and expenses.
