Did Your Accident Lead To A Brain Injury?

Unlike accident injuries involving broken bones or severe lacerations, brain injuries sometimes do not reveal themselves until much later. A hidden danger with brain injuries is that a victim will think he or she is feeling fine. But friends, family and others close to the victim may recognize symptoms and help the victim seek medical attention when something isn't right.

At Fitzpatrick, Skemp & Associates, we stay up-to-date with the findings of medical professionals as brain injuries, like concussions, become better understood. Over 100 years of experience handling personal injury, workers' compensation and Social Security Disability cases, we help individuals and families recover from debilitating concussions or other brain damaging injuries by pursuing compensation.

Recognizing Brain Trauma

Many people associate brain injuries with horrific car wrecks, surgical errors, sports injuries sustained by professional athletes or other high-impact incidents. The fact is a slip and fall, whiplash from a minor collision or a seemingly routine sports maneuver can result in a concussion. While the effects may differ from person to person, a concussion can disrupt your life and compromise your future health.

Our firm has helped numerous individuals and their families understand their options when filing a claim for compensation that can help ease recovery.

Symptoms can vary, but some common signs of a concussion or another TBI include the following:

  • Dizziness
  • Blurred vision
  • Nausea
  • Headaches
  • Loss of memory

If you are experiencing these symptoms or recognize them in a loved one, it may be in your best interests to contact a medical professional. Our skilled attorneys can work with your doctor while helping you understand your options when filing a claim.

Concussions Affecting Students, Workers And Young Children

The debilitating effects of concussions are not restricted to industrial workers and professional athletes. In La Crosse, college students can slip and fall on icy sidewalks while walking to class, or young children involved in school sports can suffer from concussions. For many parents and individuals, a personal injury claim is an afterthought. However, at our firm, our lawyers can explain why pursuing a claim can protect your family's well-being.
