Concussions are one of the most common head injuries, and unfortunately, they can cause short- or long-term effects that take a toll on an individual and their families. Concussions are usually caused by a traumatic blow or repetitive blows to the head, causing the brain to rattle inside the skull. This type of injury causes temporary loss of brain function, and symptoms may include headaches, confusion, amnesia, dizziness, nausea, loss of consciousness, and more. If you have suffered a concussion in the past, experiencing another comes with even greater risks.
If you or a loved one suffered a concussion due to someone else’s negligence, Cannella & O’Neal’s concussion attorneys can help you get the compensation you may need to recover. Whether the concussion was sustained in a car accident, in the workplace, or playing sports, our team of concussion lawyers in Virginia will work with you to ensure you are getting every dollar possible to help you during this stressful time.
Concussions – Most Common Causes
Due to their violent nature, vehicle accidents are a common cause of concussions. When you are suddenly hit by a car, motorcycle, or other vehicle, the impact often causes severe head injuries or whiplash which can result in a concussion. When the accident was not your fault, you may be able to pursue compensation from the at-fault driver by filing a personal injury claim.
Slip & Fall Accidents
If you fall down a set of stairs, slip on a wet surface, or get in any other kind of accident in a place of business, your head may take the impact, causing a concussion. When a business owner or landlord did not take the necessary measures to keep their space safe for customers and tenants, they may be the at-fault party in your slip and fall concussion case.
