What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Jacksonville Contusion Attorney

A brain contusion is a serious injury that can be caused by a high force blow to the head. It is essentially a bruise that forms when blood vessels in the brain leak small amounts of blood. Its symptoms can resemble a concussion, but it is considered a more serious injury because it involves actual damage to the structure of the brain.

Jacksonville brain injury lawyer Don Guthrie is dedicated to helping victims of brain contusions win the compensation they deserve. Contact us today at 904-296-1088.

Symptoms of a Brain Contusion

Traumatic brain injuries involving structural damage often cause victims to lose consciousness immediately after the accident. Upon waking up, they may experience agitation, confusion, or exhaustion. If they have suffered a contusion, they may also experience:

  • Memory loss
  • Difficulty concentration
  • Loss of motor coordination
  • Difficulty speaking or understanding speech
  • Poor emotional regulation

Brain Contusion Prognosis

Like other kinds of brain injury, contusions are unpredictable. This is because we still know very little about how the brain works. The symptoms of a brain contusion usually fade over time, but it is difficult for doctors to estimate how long this will take.

People with brain contusions usually need to spend a few days in a hospital for monitoring. After returning home, they may be unable to meet their regular obligations while they recover. Many patients need temporary assistance from friends or family while they return to a normal level of functioning.
