If you were involved in a car accident and are nowexperiencing memory loss, you may have suffered a concussion. A concussion is a type of brain injury and is usually caused by a blow or jolt to the head, which often happens in vehicle accidents. In addition, when the head or body experiences any sudden movement (i.e. whiplash) this can cause a concussion. Symptoms include headaches, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, and temporary or ongoing memory loss.

What to Do if You Are Experiencing Memory Loss After an Accident

Concussion-induced memory loss can prevent you from recalling the events during and leading up to an accident. While this can complicate your case, you are still entitled to seek compensation, and an experienced concussion injury attorney can help you determine if and how negligence caused the accident.

Since memory loss and other concussion symptoms may not appear immediately, it is important to seek medical treatment after a head injury as soon as possible, even if you feel fine. Next, contact an attorney who can help you file a claim and receive the compensation you deserve.

How an Experienced Personal Injury Attorney Can Help

Even if you are unable to recall all the details of your accident, your attorney can conduct an investigation and advocate on your behalf. Together you can consult medical reports, police reports, security footage, witness accounts, and other evidence to figure out exactly what happened.
