Fresno Concussion Injury Lawyers
When Only Complete Compensation Will Do
A concussion is caused when the brain rocks enough to hit the inner wall of the skull. Although concussion injuries are represented as something to “rest off” in media, the truth is that a concussion is a form of mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI), and all brain injuries have the potential to cause significant health complications and long-lasting problems.
If you have suffered a concussion that was not your fault, then you might be able to file a claim for compensation against the party that hurt you. Fowler | Helsel | Vogt would like to help.

Symptoms of a Concussion
Concussions can be highly problematic because they are not always immediately noticeable. Many people who suffer a concussion just think they are sore or need some rest, unaware that their brain has been injured. The longer a concussion goes undiagnosed and untreated, the greater potential it has to worsen into an even more serious brain injury.
If you were recently in an accident, and you hit your head or were rocked around, then you should see a doctor as soon as possible for a diagnosis. You could have an undiagnosed concussion, especially if you have been experiencing concerning symptoms.
Concussion symptoms typically include:
- Headache or migraine
- Blurry vision
- Mind fog or general confusion
- Balance issues
- Nausea and vomiting
- Temporary memory loss
- Tinnitus or ringing ears
- Sharp pain when moving the neck
Please arrange to be taken to a medical clinic as soon as possible if you have any of these symptoms. If you are experiencing severe symptoms or lapses of unconsciousness, then you should call 911.
Concussion Treatments & Costs
Some concussions can be treated with in-home self-care, like bed rest and removal of stimuli like movies and smartphone use. Others might require short-term hospitalization for monitoring and specialized care techniques when the concussion is severe. Concussions can also last for months, meaning you could be dealing with concussion symptoms long after your accident. For long-lasting concussions, unique forms of rehabilitative therapy can help.
For cases other than those that require only in-home self-care, concussion injury treatments can get expensive. Lengthy rehabilitative therapy, in particular, can easily exceed an average health insurance cap. Will you have to pay for your care out of pocket? What happens to all the wages you have lost because you can’t work with a concussion? Financial damages like these are why it is so important to work with an experienced concussion injury attorney from the beginning of your case to its conclusion.
