Attorneys For Victims Of Post-Concussion Syndrome
Long after a person has recovered from a concussion injury, the symptoms of concussion can persist. Physical symptoms can include headaches and neck pain, dizziness, sensitivity to light, nausea and motion sickness. Patients may experience memory problems and difficulty in concentration. They may also suffer emotional problems such as depression, anxiety and irritability.
The persistence of concussion symptoms after brain recovery indicates a related but distinct type of brain injury called post-concussion syndrome (PCS). Medical science is still unraveling the mysteries of PCS and much about the syndrome remains to be learned. But PCS is real and it can dramatically affect the physical, cognitive and emotional state of people who suffer from this condition.

How We Can Help
Insurance companies may balk at paying medical costs for treatment of post-concussion syndrome, arguing that the evidence shows that the accident victim has physically recovered. Wyatt Law Firm aggressively litigates such cases, seeking full compensation for medical costs and other damages.
At Wyatt Law Firm, our first priority is always protecting the interests of our clients and helping them get access to needed medical care. Our team of personal injury lawyers works closely with brain injury specialists across the nation to determine the exact nature and extent of the injuries affecting our clients. Because of the difficulties in diagnosing post-concussive syndrome, this is essential.
We then seek the funds to pay for the medical care and services our clients need. In a PCS case, this could include funds for pain medication, antidepressants and, if necessary, treatment by a psychiatrist or neurologist. In addition to medical costs, we seek full compensation for all other economic and noneconomic losses.
