Annapolis Concussion Brain Injury Attorneys

Brain injuries are not always readily apparent, especially when accident victims have suffered broken bones, lacerations, burns or other acute injuries. Mild brain damage may go undiagnosed for days, weeks or even months, but in the long term it may be life-changing and debilitating.

Mild Brain Injury And Concussion Syndrome

Mild traumatic brain injury (TBI) can result from direct trauma, such as hitting the head in a falling accident or striking the interior of the vehicle in a car accident or truck accident. Brain injuries can also occur indirectly, as from the violent whiplash action of a rear-end collision.

Unlike a fractured skull or broken neck, there may be no outward indication of brain trauma from a closed head injury. Meanwhile, the delicate tissues of the brain may be bruised and disrupted and the damage can become worse or permanent if not treated in timely fashion. Concussion symptoms, for example, may go away within days or linger on for a year or more.

Diagnosis commonly results after family members notice symptoms of brain injury:

  • Headaches or vertigo
  • Vision impairment
  • Inability to concentrate
  • Slurred speech or dazed expression
  • Forgetfulness or memory loss
  • Problems with balance or coordination
  • Fatigue or lethargy
  • Depression or mood swings
  • Personality change

Compensation For The Lasting Effects Of Brain Injury

The cumulative symptoms of mild brain injury may prevent the person from returning to his or her job or sustaining any type of employment. The symptoms may come and go, and the person may recover over time or never improve. We work with neurologists, physical therapists, vocational experts, psychologists and many professionals to understand our client's needs and to portray the full impact of the injury to the insurance adjusters or a jury.

We know that even a mild traumatic brain injury can be quite disabling and have a profound impact on the victim and the whole family. Our brain injury lawyers are committed to holding the negligent parties accountable for ongoing care, lost income and the pain and suffering of the brain injury victim.
