Have You Suffered A Concussion In An Accident?
Victims of car accidents, truck accidents and motorcycle accidents, as well as other types of accidents, are often left with a concussion. Concussions are the most common type of traumatic brain injury (TBI). They may be the result of the head colliding with an external object such as a windshield or steering wheel. They can also be the result of the brain colliding with the inside of the skull, common in accidents that involve sudden acceleration or stopping.
Concussions are typically treated with rest, avoiding both physical and mental stress. With proper treatment, a concussion may go away in a matter of weeks. However, in some cases, symptoms may continue for much longer or complications may arise. If a concussion was the result of someone else’s negligence, you may have the right to seek compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages and other costs. An experienced attorney can help you ensure that you get everything you are entitled to.
What To Do
While concussions may be accompanied by loss of consciousness, that is not always the case. The most common symptom of a concussion injury is headache. Dizziness, blurry vision, nausea and vomiting are also physical symptoms of concussions. Cognitive symptoms include disorientation and confusion. These symptoms may not be immediately obvious. If you or a loved one has been in an accident and suffered any of these symptoms or any similar symptoms, the most important thing is immediate medical attention.
