We will work hard to make sure all evidence in your case is compiled and presented in an effective manner. This will put in the best possible position to receive maximum compensation.
A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury. While it is usually described as a “mild” brain injury, some people do experience severe symptoms and end up suffering long-term consequences. This is why it is important to work with a Los Angeles brain injury lawyer who has successfully handled concussion injury cases. At the Vaziri Law Group, we not only have experience, but also valuable access to medical experts who can testify on your behalf and help explain your injuries. These experts will also be able to tell a jury about how these injuries could affect you in the long term, affect your ability to work and enjoy your life.
How Can I Get Compensation for My Concussion Injury?
In order to receive compensation for your concussion injury, you may have to file a civil personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault or negligent party. This means that as the plaintiff in this injury case, the burden of proof to prove negligence (on the part of the defendant) is on you, the plaintiff.
For example, if your concussion injury was the result of an accident triggered by a drunk driver, you may be able to seek compensation through that driver's auto insurance company. Now, if the at-fault driver was on the job at the time of the car accident, you may be able to seek compensation from his or her employer as well.
An experienced attorney can handle the compensation process for you, gathering the evidence needed and handling all negotiations with the insurance company. If the insurance company is not willing to settle for an amount you are happy with, our attorneys can fight them at trial to help get you the money you need and deservee.
Signs and Symptoms of a Concussion
If you or a loved one has been injured in a Los Angeles car accident, here are some of the signs or symptoms you should watch out for so you secure medical attention right away:
- Loss of memory of the event before or after the crash
- Appearing dazed or confused
- Trouble walking
- Slow to answer questions

Our advice is to get medical attention if you suffer a head injury, regardless of whether you experience these symptoms or not. Often times, the symptoms of concussions don't appear right away. It could take hours or even weeks for some people to begin noticing symptoms. You need to get prompt medical attention so your doctor can perform the necessary tests to help diagnose you correctly.
Causes of Concussions in a Car Accident
A concussion during a car accident could be caused by a strike, blow or jolt to the head. Sometimes, concussions occur even when you don't hit your head against anything. During a car accident, it could even be caused by the extreme force of the crash, which might cause your head to whip back and forth. This is particularly common in rear-end collisions.
Concussions can cause the brain to become damaged. Sometimes, this could cause bleeding in and around the brain. Such conditions, when left untreated, could result in lifelong disabilities and irreversible damage to the brain. Regardless of how your concussion occurred, it is imperative that you get prompt medical attention.
