Post-concussion syndrome, a mild traumatic brain injury (TBI) caused by an impact to the head, may not be identified without expert medical attention following an accident. A Clayton County brain injury lawyer at the Law Office of Shane Smith can pursue a Georgia personal injury claim.  

Most TBI claims are concussion-related; such injuries can range from mild to severe. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately 1.4 million people sustain a concussion each year. Over 5.3 million people need lifelong or long-term help with daily activities due to TBI.

Severe TBI may cause dramatic daily living changes for the victim and the victim's family. Memory loss may limit the victim. Motor skills may diminish limiting the victim's ability to complete certain tasks. In some severe cases, victims may require long-term care in a facility that specializes in TBI. The victim's family members may deal with the dilemma of living their own lives (including maintaining employment) or caring for the TBI victim. A full-time caregiver may be an option if funds are available.

Mild TBI symptoms can include:

  • Headaches
  • Depression, anger or personality alterations
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Short-term memory loss, forgetfulness and/or attention deficits
  • Impaired sight
  • Impaired judgment
  • Speech and/or communication problems
  • Memory loss
  • Difficulty swallowing or chewing
  • Sleep disorders

The Law Offices of Shane Smith will aggressively pursue a brain injury case to get the victim fair compensation. Call Clayton County brain injury lawyer Shane Smith for a free consultation.
