Attorney For Concussion Victims
A concussion can occur when the head suffers a sharp blow or the head is violently shaken from side to side. Loss of consciousness sometimes follows, but it is possible for a person to suffer a concussion without loss of consciousness or even without knowing it.
If you have suffered a blow to the head or if you were in a rear end accident or side collision, you should seek medical care as soon as possible. You should also speak with a lawyer about your case. Without an experienced advocate on your side, you may not get the medical care and compensation you need.
At Bird & Van Dyke, we vigorously represent people who have suffered concussions and other types of brain injuries. We want to help you get the money that can pay for the medical care you need, plus full compensation for all other economic and noneconomic losses.

With proper treatment, many concussion victims can recover completely. However, there can be complications requiring follow-up medical care.
After a concussion, certain symptoms may appear, such as dizziness, headaches or emotional problems. The symptoms usually disappear after a few days or weeks, but they last for a year or longer. When the symptoms persist for an extended period, the accident victim can be diagnosed as suffering from post-concussion syndrome. This is a complex medical condition that can be treated with medications and psychotherapy, but first it must be properly diagnosed through a CT scan or MRI.
If you are suffering from the following symptoms following a blow to the head, you may be suffering from post-concussion syndrome:
- Inability to concentrate
- Memory loss
- Irritability, anxiety or depression
- Sensitivity to light and noise
At Bird & Van Dyke, we place a priority on helping accident victims obtain medical care and full compensation for their losses and suffering. Let us put our experience and advocacy skills to work for you.
