Signs of a concussion
A concussion is a common brain injury that usually causes temporary symptoms. However, repeat concussions can result in permanent brain damage and other complications. In many cases, concussions can cause immediate and serious symptoms. Some concussions don’t produce any symptoms at all. Concussions often cause:
- Poor concentration
- Loss of memory
- Issues with balance and coordination
- Blurred vision
- Slurred speech
- Delayed reactions
- Impaired judgment
- Problems with sleeping
Don’t wait to take action
After a motorcycle crash, you should seek immediate medical attention. Even if you don’t experience any concussion symptoms and feel like you can walk it off, don’t take a chance with your health. Worried about the medical expenses? Worry no more. If you were injured in a motorcycle accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation. But you must act fast. The longer you wait to seek medical attention, the less likely you’ll be able to build a strong claim.
Don’t expect insurance companies to look out for your needs. They only care about reducing their own overhead costs. They may downplay your injuries or pin the blame on you. If they’re generous enough, they may offer you a small settlement that only covers a fraction of your medical expenses, lost wages and suffering.
That’s why you need a law firm that puts your needs first. Our motorcycle accident attorneys have years of experience and legal knowledge helping injured motorcyclists recover, and we have the case results to prove it. We know how to negotiate with the insurance companies. And if they refuse to compensate you, we can take them to trial. We want to help you on the road to recovery.
