Brain and Spinal Cord Injury

We at West & Associates, P.C. in Pennsylvania are dedicated to educating clients on their options for seeking compensation for the losses they have suffered and discuss the ways in which we can pursue a resolution to the matter.

Symptoms of a brain injury can be subtle. Some to watch for are:

  • Vision loss
  • Memory loss
  • Difficulties with speech
  • Headaches
  • Behavioral changes

A serious injury can be caused by a minor accident.

Do not dismiss any of the above just because the accident or incident seemed too minor to have done any damage. Many injuries may start out as simple aches and pains, such as a headache. Unfortunately, they may progress very rapidly to other, more severe symptoms that could have been prevented by seeking medical attention immediately following your accident. Your head does not have to actually hit anything for you to have sustained an injury, such as a concussion.

  • Spinal cord injuries may not reveal themselves immediately either. A broken vertebra, which may not be discovered for some time following an accident, can damage your spinal cord, leading to partial or total paralysis.
  • Seek medical care without delay after an accident or incident and do not be afraid to be aggressive with your doctor. Your health and future may hang in the balance.
