“You may feel fine after a car accident or a fall that results in a concussion. Nevertheless, you should obtain medical attention as soon as possible and consult with a lawyer concerning your rights.” —Michael Applebaum
The full effects of a concussion injury may not become apparent for up to a year after the injury occurs. That is why it is so important to obtain an accurate diagnosis and appropriate medical care.
In your case, we will work with one or more medical experts (such as a neuropsychologist) to determine the extent of the injury. Our brain injury attorney will then work diligently to help you obtain care and services you need to recover to the fullest extent possible.
