Boston Concussions Attorney
Understanding the Long-term Effects of a Concussion
The long-term effects of a concussion can be quite significant: memory loss, cognitive impairment, chronic pain, loss of the sense of taste or smell, and equilibrium problems. Since concussions involve the severe bruising of the brain, the full-impact of a concussion may take months to appear. Of course, when a concussion is involved, insurance claims adjusters don't include costs associated with the long-term consequences of a concussion. In fact, an insurance company may try to justify the claim amount offered by arguing there is no reason to believe a concussion victim will suffer any long-term consequences. At the personal injury law office of Nicole D Sullivan , we consult neurologists and other medical experts as needed in order to determine the scope and nature of a concussion. We understand how a concussion can lead to other problems later and demand compensation proportional to our client's injuries.

Why Concussions Are Serious
A concussion - also known as a closed-head injury - typically results from a blow that suddenly or violently snaps the head forward or backward. Although the brain is encased in the skull, it is essentially surrounded by, and floating in, fluid. When the head is suddenly forced in one direction or another in an accident, the brain will violently move about in the skull, not unlike a fish when its bowel is slid along a table and suddenly brought to a stop. When this happens, brain cells all fire at once and bruising can occur when the brain slams up against the interior of the skull.
