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 Fayette County brain injury lawyer at the Law Office of Shane Smith can pursue a Georgia personal injury claim.
Researchers studying TBIs in soldiers met in Georgia for a 2012 symposium on brain injuries.
According to a former Army vice chief of staff, advances in soldiers' TBI treatment are not keeping pace with the number of soldiers who have suffered such injuries.
In addition to soldiers over 1.7 million civilians are treated annually for brain damage. A patient may suffer from a concussion, memory loss, dizziness and blurry vision.
Headaches and dizziness, the most common post-concussion syndrome symptoms, may not develop for up to 10 days after an automobile accident, slip and fall or jostling accident. The victim's symptoms will often disappear within a few months but it is possible for discomfort or cognitive effects to be felt for over a year. In severe post-concussion syndrome diagnoses a victim had mild to severe headaches, attention deficit problems, behavioral changes and short- and long-term memory loss.
The Law Offices of Shane Smith will aggressively pursue a brain injury case to get fair compensation for the victim. Call Fayette County brain injury lawyer Shane Smith for a free consultation.
