Concussions

Sustaining a head injury can have more devastating repercussions than just a bump on the noggin or a dull headache. Concussions occur when a person’s head comes into contact with a significant force. Although one concussion may not seriously affect your wellbeing; repeated concussions can have long term consequences.

If you or someone you know has suffered from a concussion because of another party’s negligence or recklessness, you may be eligible to receive compensation for your losses.

Symptoms

If you have sustained a head injury and are experiencing one or more of the following symptoms, you may be suffering from a concussion:

  • Loss of consciousness
  • Severe headache
  • Memory loss
  • Nausea/vomiting
  • Confusion
  • Unequally sized pupils

Treating a concussion depends on the severity. If you have sustained a serious head injury, however, it is recommended that you seek emergency medical care to evaluate your condition.

Multiple Concussions

Most people will sustain at least one concussion during their lifetime. Generally, one concussion will not have long-term consequences; however, the more concussions sustained, the more likely you are to suffering from more severe side-effects.
