What is a Concussion?
A concussion is a common and less severe type of traumatic brain injury that is common in sports and motor-vehicle accidents. Concussions happen when a blow to the head causes your brain to bounce around in your skull. This can cause the brain to be jarred within the skull and can lead to bruising, damage to blood vessels, and damage to the nerves in your brain.
Concussions have different levels of severity. A Grade 1 concussion lasts for only a few minutes, while a Grade 3 concussion can knock a person unconscious. Regardless of the severity of the concussion, you should always seek medical attention.
Concussions can come with several recognizable symptoms. These include:
- Nausea, dizziness, and balancing problems
- Memory loss
- Difficulty concentrating
- Sensitivity to light and noise
If you have suffered a blow to the head recently, watch out for these symptoms. If you spot them, you should go to a doctor and get treatment as soon as possible to prevent the concussion from getting worse. Then, contact Sampson Law Firm as soon as possible so that you can hold the party responsible for your injury accountable.
A concussion can be very costly. A 2015 study by the Harborview Injury Prevention & Research Center at the University of Washington showed that mild traumatic brain injuries like concussions have a median cost of about $1,000, but some may require more extensive treatment and may have lasting effects on a person’s life. In these severe cases, it might be necessary to take legal action to make sure that your rights are protected and that you get the rightful compensation that you are due.
