Athens Head, Brain, and Concussion Injury Attorneys
Head, brain, and concussion injuries are a serious result of many Athens accidents
One of the most common injuries our clients suffer after an Athens accident is a head or brain injury. The violence of any physical force can impact the brain, causing a wide range of injuries that can result in permanent disability, seizures, memory loss, headaches, loss of taste or smell, double vision, speech impairments, anxiety, and depression. The leading causes of head and brain injury include motor-vehicle accidents.
Common types of traumatic head and brain injuries from Athens accidents:
- A concussion is caused when the brain receives trauma from an impact or a sudden momentum or movement change. The blood vessels in the brain may stretch and cranial nerves may be damaged.
- A contusion is a bruise (bleeding) on the brain.
- A coup-contrecoup injury occurs when the force impacting the head is not only great enough to cause a contusion at the site of impact, but also moves the brain and causes it to slam into the opposite side of the skull, which causes the additional contusion.
- Penetrating injury to the brain occurs from the impact of a sharp object that forces hair, skin, bones and fragments from the object into the brain.
After an injury accident in Athens, it is crucial to get appropriate medical treatment, regardless of the financial cost
