Head, Brain, and Concussion Injury Attorneys

People injured in Puget Sound accidents often suffer head, brain, and concussion injuries

One of the most common injuries people experience after an accident is a head or brain injury. The physical force of a collision can impact the brain, causing serious injuries that can leave people with traumatic brain injuries that result in permanent disabilities, and sometimes causes death. By far, the leading cause of head, brain, and concussion injuries is a motor-vehicle accident.

Common symptoms of head/brain, and concussion injuries range from mild to severe and can include:

  • loss of consciousness;
  • confusion or disorientation;
  • headache;
  • nausea or vomiting;
  • blurred vision;
  • memory or concentration problems;
  • convulsions or seizures;
  • slurred speech;
  • coma and other disorders of consciousness.
