A concussion was previously thought not to be serious but is now recognized as a very serious injury.  A concussion is an injury caused by a violent shaking of the head and brain.

The injured person may not even be aware of having been violently shaken, or having received a concussion, or may think that it was no big deal.  However, it is now known to be a very big deal.

Concussion Is a Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (MTBI)

If you had a concussion or if you were unconscious at the time of the accident, you have a mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI).

For detailed information about concussions and mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI), see our website at

Symptoms of a Concussion

The symptoms of a concussion are extremely serious and are permanent. There is no cure but treatment can be attempted to train the brain to use different pathways to perform functions that can no longer be performed, such as loss of memory and the ability to recall names or daily activities.

You should pay particular attention to the symptoms caused by this injury because it is often noted in the hospital and then overlooked by the hospital.

Signs of a Concussion

Concussion Even with Bleeding in the Brain Is Often Forgotten by the Hospital

When brought to the hospital emergency room, the doctors are usually concerned with life-threatening injuries. A CT scan may show a small drop of blood on or in your brain but when the doctors are convinced that it is not life-threatening, it is forgotten and left untreated.

What Is a Concussion Worth?

$1.25 Million Settlement

We obtained a $1.25 million settlement for a concussion with symptoms that did not present until a month after the accident. The client did not have bleeding on the brain.

$1 Million Trial Verdict

Our client had a concussion with a small amount of bleeding in the brain from a motorcycle accident. The insurance company offered $150,000 to settle. At a trial in New York State Supreme Court in Queens, a jury awarded $1 million.
