Providing Compassionate Counsel and Skillful Representation
A concussion can continue to affect a person's reasoning and cognitive
abilities long after the impact that caused the injury. A concussion victim
may suffer other adverse effects such as headaches, vertigo and irritability.
Fortunately for concussion victims, the San Francisco Bay Area has some
of the world's leading brain specialists and rehabilitation hospitals.
However, without conclusive medical evidence insurance companies often
dispute the need for medical care in cases involving concussions.

What Is Post-Concussive Syndrome?
Post-concussive syndrome is a form of mild
traumatic brain injury that can persist for months after an impact to the head. Victims can suffer
a variety of symptoms, including headaches, memory loss, impaired reasoning
abilities and emotional problems. The older the victim, the more difficult
it is to recover.
To obtain insurance compensation for post-concussive syndrome, it is necessary
to show conclusive evidence of the injury. Computed tomography (CT) imaging
is most often used to detect brain abnormalities, though it does not always
accurately predict who does or does not exhibit symptoms of post-concussive syndrome.
Walker, Hamilton, Koenig & Burbidge has handled a large number of cases
involving post-concussive syndrome. We work with neuropsychologists and
other medical experts to obtain medical evidence to support our clients'
claims. When our law firm represents you, we will work diligently to build
