What Are Concussions?
Concussions – traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) that result from trauma such as a blow or jolt to the head – can cause serious damage and impact how the brain functions. They are the most common type of injury that affects the brain. Most experts believe that concussions often involve shearing or stretching of the brain, which results in micro-hemorrhaging and concussive symptoms.
Many times, concussions result from falls or accidents where the head is rapidly moved in one direction and then another such as a car crash. However, physical impact is not necessary for a concussion to result, as rapid movement of the brain inside the skull can cause brain injury itself.
Concussions often appear deceptively mild shortly after they occur. However, any damage to the brain should be taken very seriously, and should be addressed as soon as possible. Acting immediately gives you the best chance at receiving appropriate medical care and laying the groundwork for a personal injury case.
Symptoms Of Concussions
Although every concussion varies based on the cause of the injury and the individual involved, common symptoms of concussions include:
- Chronic fatigue
- Need for increased rest and sleep
- Feeling disturbed by loud noises or bright lights
- Subtle changes in personality
- Intolerance of others
Even in situations where overt symptoms are not present and radiographic scans do not show the presence of a concussion, our insightful team of litigators may be able to help. Any time you or a loved one has sustained a head or brain injury of any kind, contact us to ensure that your interests are protected.
