Concussion and Traumatic Brain Injury Attorney in West Virginia
Brain injury is a subject that has been in the news lately. Many people may recognize when a sports figure is injured on the field or in an accident, but may not see how the same type of brain injury can happen due to a simple fall or other “minor” accident. Whether at home or on the job, people can suffer a head injury that causes a concussion or other type of traumatic brain injury (TBI).
Attorney James Fox and his staff at Fox Law Office, PLLC want you to be aware of the types of symptoms we may expect to see in someone who has had a brain injury:
- Difficulty Concentrating
- Loss of Cognitive Function
- Memory Loss
- Mood Swings
- Severe Headaches
A brain-related injury is something we cannot see, can be complicated, and sometimes may go undiagnosed. A serious accident or “simple” slip and fall may cause someone to bang their head. This impact can cause internal damages that have lingering effects, such as subtle seizures, blocks of lost memory, or severe mood swings. There may need to be testing done by a specialist to determine the severity of a TBI, and therapies that can help people who have lingering or chronic effects.
If you or a loved one has experienced a traumatic brain injury, be sure to consult with Fox Law Office to protect your rights!
