BRAIN INJURY LAWYER MINNEAPOLIS-CONCUSSIONS ARE BRAIN INJURIES.
A concussion is a brain injury!!! That is a fact, respected almost unanimously by professionals in the field.
Many concussions heal and recover. Many don’t.
Even the concussions that heal often leave a permanent residual problem. People who have experienced a prior concussion are at greater risk for having another concussion.
A concussion injury that doesn’t heal develops into a Post Concussion Syndrome (PCS). PCS is a condition where the symptoms of the concussion persist and become chronic. Symptoms of headache, irritability, poor cognition (memory, comprehension, concentration), personality changes, vision disorders can persist in the Post Concussion Syndrome.
Sadly, a large majority of the medical community does not respect the severity of a concussion injury. The medical community overlooked the huge problem with professional football players who developed Chronic Encephalopathy. It is said that medical doctors were generally among to last to accept the pathological findings which proved the brain damage to the professional football players.
It is super important that the victims of concussion injuries find a lawyer that understands concussion injuries and mild traumatic brain injuries.
