Sustaining any type of injury in a car crash can be difficult to handle, especially as financial obligations begin to mount. Dealing with an injury can be exponentially harder if that injury is a concussion. While many Americans know that concussions frequently happen amongst athletes, especially football players, not many understand the severity of a concussion. Professional athletes have the benefit of world-class health care and rehabilitation programs to overcome their concussions. However, as a “normal” person, a concussion can have serious and possibly deadly repercussions. A concussion is considered a traumatic brain injury because it directly affects your brain from a rough impact. Concussions can be tricky to diagnose and dangerous if left untreated. Having a concussion can create serious problems for your health that can eventually affect multiple areas of your life. If you’ve been in an accident and you believe you’ve sustained a concussion, be sure to seek medical attention immediately and then contact our law firm to see how we can get you money to cover any expenses you have or will incur because of your concussion.
What are the Most Common Accidents that Cause a Concussion?
Concussions can happen in nearly any type of accident. However, blunt force traumatic accidents such as car accidents, truck accidents, and motorcycle accidents can often produce concussions on impact. Other accidents such as pedestrian accidents, bicycle accidents, and premises liability accidents can also cause concussions due to the vulnerability of your head. If you’ve sustained a concussion in any of those accidents or others, be sure to reach out to our law firm to see how we can fight for the compensation you rightfully deserve.
How Can I Tell If I Had or Have a Concussion?
Symptoms for a concussion can vary from person to person. However, it is important to note that even if you are experiencing mild symptoms of a concussion, you still may be vulnerable for an extended period of time. Symptoms of headache, nausea, blurriness, confusion, and even hearing loss can occur from a concussion. Severe cases of concussion can lead to other mental health complications that can put your life as you know it, in jeopardy. If you have experienced any of these symptoms, call your doctor immediately, then reach out to our law firm as soon as possible so we can begin planning to get you the compensation you deserve and treatments you may need to fully recover.
