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.

 

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.
