Common Effects of Concussions

steering wheel, a curbside, and a falling tool, these things have one point in common: they cause thousands of concussions every year. Although all concussions impact the brain, the symptoms of a suffered concussion can manifest themselves in a variety of ways. As a result, being able to identify the signs of a concussion could be crucial to someone’s recovery after an accident.

Diagnosing a Concussion

In some situations, a concussion is identifiable immediately after an accident. Loss of memory, loss of consciousness, and an acute headache are all telltale signs that someone suffered a concussion in the heat of an accident. However, not every concussion results in extreme symptoms, and therefore, identifying common symptoms is crucial in the determination of the necessity of medical treatment.

Lesser known concussion symptoms that can show after an accident include:

  • headaches or migraines
  • general confusion or “fogginess”
  • dizziness
  • ear ringing
  • nausea
  • tiredness and fatigue

Concussion symptoms that could be delayed until hours or days after the accident:

  • Forgetfulness
  • Irritability
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Trouble Sleeping
  • Psychological complications
  • Taste or smell complications

Concussions & Financial Recovery

When an accident is caused by someone else’s negligence, the injured may be able to financially recover through a personal injury lawsuit. However, in most personal injury cases, a physical injury is a prerequisite to obtaining a recovery. Therefore, a concussion diagnosis can be a life-altering happenstance should you or a loved one suffer an accident.
