Head Injuries in Adults | Romanucci & Blandin
Adults can sustain a head injury in a variety of sports, and the most common type of head injury for adults is a concussion. A concussion can cause blurred vision, memory loss, nausea and confusion. There are many sports and recreational activities in which you can sustain a head injury, but the most common are:
- Baseball or Softball
- Horseback Riding
- Water Sports
If you or a loved one has suffered a sports-related head injury, our skilled Chicago attorneys can help you seek the compensation you deserve.
Our Chicago personal injury attorneys have experience handling sports injury cases for our clients, including head injuries in adults. If an adult sustains multiple concussions, there can be serious neurological effects. If they have suffered a concussion and return to their game before they have fully recovered, they are at risk for developing second impact syndrome (SIS). Second impact syndrome occurs if the brain has swelled rapidly after a player has suffered a second concussion before their initial concussion has fully healed.
Any adult who has suffered from multiple concussions or SIS may be put at an increased risk of developing learning difficulties, including memory loss, lack of concentration, difficulties processing new information and they may also experience behavioral changes.
Head injuries can have very serious consequences and may require extensive medical attention. Our experienced personal injury attorneys are here to ensure that you are not weighed down with financial burden during your difficult time.
