The sudden impact of a car accident can lead to devastating injuries, especially if your head strikes an object during the collision.
The speed at which accidents occur makes it impossible to consciously prevent these injuries.
As a result, many drivers and passengers suffer concussions from a crash.
If you received a head injury in a car accident, someone else might be liable for your injuries.
A personal injury claim can compensate you for your losses, especially if you have a serious head injury after an accident.
A post-concussion syndrome settlement will address the short-term and long-term impact of your injury.

Post-concussion syndrome (PCS) is a condition where your concussion-related symptoms persist for a while after your head injury.
Symptoms of post-concussion syndrome include:
- Persistent headache,

- Blurry vision
- Sensitivity to light,
