Allentown Concussion Lawyer

Help for Concussion Victims in Easton, Bethlehem & the Lehigh Valley

A concussion is a serious type of traumatic brain injury (TBI) that occurs when a blow to the head or body causes the head to move back and forth rapidly and suddenly. The brain then moves within the skull in a bouncing or twisting motion. A concussion is characterized by a temporary loss of normal brain function, and a person who sustains a concussion may experience the following side effects:

  • Headache
  • Blurred vision
  • Nausea
  • Dizziness
  • Light sensitivity
  • Fatigue
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Short term memory loss
  • Irritability or anxiety

If you or someone you love sustained a concussion in an auto accident, construction site fall, workplace accident, or slip and fall accident, call an Allentown concussion lawyer at Knafo Law Offices. We help those who have been injured due to negligence and can advise you of your options. If someone else is to blame, we can work to hold them accountable and responsible for paying your medical bills and more.

Taking Legal Action After a Concussion

First and foremost, it is important to seek medical attention immediately after a blow to the head. If you believe your loved one has suffered a concussion, watch carefully for signs that may indicate the formation of a blood clot that could pose life-threatening danger, and seek emergency treatment:

  • Worsening headache
  • Repeated vomiting or nausea
  • Slurred speech
  • Decreased motor function
  • Numbness
  • Extreme drowsiness
  • One pupil that is dilated
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Convulsions or seizures

After you have sought medical care, talking to a lawyer about your legal options is an important step to take. You may be entitled to financial compensation to pay for medical treatment as well as emotional trauma, pain and suffering, and lost wages. An Allentown injury attorney can protect your rights and interests as you take legal action.
