Cedar Rapids Contusions Lawyers
The tendency of many people is to dismiss contusions as minor injuries simply because they associate them with bruising. While it is true that contusion is the technical term for a bruise, this leads to a misunderstanding of the severity of such an injury when it affects any part of the brain. Generally a bruise of the extremities or other tissues is relatively harmless and will heal quickly with only minor pain as an effect. But when a cerebral contusion develops as a result of blunt force trauma, one’s life hangs in the balance.

Effects of a Cerebral Contusion
There is no way to accurately determine whether you or your loved one has sustained a cerebral contusion, so it is always recommended that you seek medical attention if you receive a blow to the head. With a proper examination that may include the use of imaging technology, doctors can usually determine whether there is a contusion on the brain tissue, and timely treatment can quite literally save your life. Some symptoms of a cerebral contusion may include:
- Memory impairments or memory loss
- Compromised speech
- Unexplained drowsiness
The expense of medical care in this day and age is often astronomical, and when you are forced to seek treatment because of another’s negligence you should not have to pay for it on your own.
