Concussion Injuies

Denver Concussion Injury Attorneys | The Gold Law Firm

What is a concussion?

According to the CDC (Center for Disease Control) a concussion is a mild traumatic brain injury that results in a temporary loss of functioning. In general, mild concussions will not cause a loss of consciousness and most people will recover quickly from a mild concussion. A severe concussion, on the other hand, usually causes a loss of consciousness and more severe symptoms. In addition, a person suffering from a severe concussion may have lingering effects long after the initial injury.

If a concussion is recognized and diagnosed quickly, permanent brain damage may be prevented. Immediate recognition of a concussion is one of the most important ways you can improve your chances of a full recovery. While only a qualified medical professional can officially diagnose a concussion, it is important to recognize the symptoms and signs of a concussion.

Concussion Injury – Signs, Symptoms and Diagnosis

Concussions are one of the most common types of head injuries in the United States. In fact, each year an estimated 1.6 – 3.8 million concussions occur during automobile accidents, sporting accidents and falls. Even though concussions themselves are not usually life threatening, if left untreated, they can cause a lifetime of pain and disabilities.

The main sings and symptoms of a concussion are:

  • Confusion
  • Disorientation
  • Dizziness
  • Perseverating (repeating words or phrases)
  • Memory loss or confusion
  • Headaches
  • Vomiting
  • Changes in judgment
  • Changes in reflexes or balance
  • Vision changes
  • Loss of Consciousness

Amazingly, the majority of concussions occur without a loss of consciousness. After an accident, victims may not even realize that they sustained a concussion. As a result, many individuals put themselves at even greater risk and continue to engage in overly physical activity. This puts an increased strain on the brain and significantly impacts the body’s ability to recover after a concussion. Because of this, it is extremely important to seek immediate medical attention after you have sustained any trauma to the head—-even if you feel fine.

A concussion can have lifelong physical, cognitive, behavioral and emotional consequences that can affect nearly every aspect of a person’s life.  These problems can affect a person’s ability to perform daily activities and even return to work. As a result, financial compensation may be needed to help pay for medical bills, rehabilitation expenses and lost wages. A brain injury attorney can help you decide the legal pathway that is right for you.

The Gold Law Firm and Greg took on my unique case when no one else would. They were amazing through the whole process. Making sure we clearly understood everything. Always taking extra time to answer all our questions. In the end we got justice! I just learned that now they have a special victims unit, and it warms my heart to know that someone is there for those unique victims.

Janet Christensen -

Client

This is a top-notch law firm who puts their client first. Colleen Parsley walked me through all the steps of my lawsuit. She is the best lawyer you can partner with. Mike Rosenberg was the insurance specialist and has outstanding expertise. Between the two of them we were able to settle my claim with two different insurance companies who had no intention of settling with me directly. I received a recommendation to contact the Gold Law Firm after a year of providing evidence and expecting coverage of my home damage after a water heater failure. I finally realized my only option was to hire a lawyer. I am very grateful that I found the best!

Cannot speak highly enough about the Gold Law Firm. My case was turned over to them when the original firm and the insurance firm reached an impasse.
