  • a mechanic who worked on your car and installed faulty parts that  caused the accident, which led to your concussion. 
With the help of a personal injury attorney, you may be able to collect compensation for your: 
  • medical bills;
  • pain and suffering;
  • loss of income; and
  • property damage. 
Signs and Symptoms of a Concussion

It's common to develop any of the following symptoms if you have a concussion:
 
  • headache;
  • extreme drowsiness;
  • confusion;
  • memory loss;
  • unconsciousness; and
  • the appearance of flashing lights.  
In more severe cases, these symptoms may develop: 
  • coma;
  • seizures;
  • uneven pupils;
  • difficulty walking;
  • muscle weakness;
  • paralysis;
  • persistent vomiting; and
  • extreme confusion.  
Do not hesitate to seek medical treatment if you or a loved one is suffering from any of the above symptoms. Your doctor and personal injury attorney will explain to you that a concussion can greatly affect your cognitive capabilities.

Besides cognitive difficulties you may also experience heightened anxiety and irritability. If you suffer from any of these difficulties, you should share this with your personal injury attorney, who will use this information when placing a fair value on your claim.
