A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury where the brain bounces around inside the skull because the patient has sustained a blow to the head or had been shaken violently. Concussions can cause damage to brain cells and chemical changes to the brain, but in Hallandale Beach, concussions are sometimes called “mild” forms of brain injury because patients are expected to recover.
The legal team at Flaxman Law Group has worked with many concussion patients who suffered debilitating and serious effects from their injury. Working with a Hallandale Beach concussion claims attorney helped these individuals pursue fair compensation so they could pay for lost wages, medical bills, support as they recovered, and other costs.

After Your Concussion
If you have hit your head or may have sustained a head injury, it is important to get emergency medical help. Even though concussions are not generally fatal, only a doctor can determine whether you have sustained a serious injury needing immediate attention or whether you have sustained a concussion you will likely recover from fully.
You may face many symptoms from your concussion, including headaches, dizziness, blurry vision, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, ringing in the ears, confusion, and other symptoms. Discuss all your symptoms with a health care professional and follow a doctor’s advice for recovery.
Recovery from a concussion may involve resting at home, being placed under medical observation, and getting pain management for headaches. It is important to follow all recommendations made by your doctor, and this may involve staying home from work and getting medical tests. Losing income and getting medical tests can be stressful, but if your injuries were caused by someone’s recklessness, you may have options for seeking compensation.
