Clarksburg Concussion Injury Lawyers
Concussions are the mildest – and the most common – form of traumatic brain injury. They occur when a person suffers a blow to the head, or when the head is moved back and forth violently enough to cause the brain to collide with the interior of the skull. Although concussions are not as severe as other brain injuries, they can still cause serious repercussions for their victims.
There are over one million cases of concussion in the US every year, most of them preventable. If you or a loved one has experienced a head injury caused by another person’s reckless actions, the Clarksburg concussion attorneys of the Law Offices of David W. Frame can help you fight back.

Symptoms of a Concussion
The symptoms that concussion patients experience will vary somewhat depending on the severity of their injuries. A person may be suffering from a concussion if he or she experiences any of the following after a blow to the head:
- Dizziness or disorientation
- Inability to remember how the injury occurred
- Nausea and/or vomiting
- Feeling tired or sleepy
- Changes in vision
It is important to note that more severe forms of brain damage can also cause these symptoms at first. That is why you need to be evaluated by a medical professional right away if you are experiencing the symptoms of a concussion. You will likely need to undergo medical tests to determine the extent of your injury.
Unfortunately, these medical tests can be expensive. In addition, you may need to miss work – and wages – while you recover. If you are not to blame for your injury, these consequences are simply not fair. An experienced Clarksburg concussion injury attorney from our firm can help you seek repayment.
