Brain concussions are now recognized to have potentially serious consequences. Trauma to the head, either directly or indirectly, can result in a serious, traumatic brain injury. That brain injury could be the result of an accident, such as a bus, pedestrian, semi-truck or motorcycle accident. It could also be the result of medical malpractice or medical negligence.
Concussion symptoms include headache, amnesia and confusion. Usually the person suffering from concussion symptoms does not remember the impact that caused the concussion. Other concussion symptoms include:
- Loss of consciousness
- Ringing in the ears
- Nausea or vomiting
- Slurred speech
Long-term concussion symptoms include listlessness, lack of interest, irritability, disturbed eating or sleeping patterns, and loss of balance. These symptoms could indicate a brain injury that may require ongoing medical care and expenses you did not anticipate. If a concussion was the result of medical malpractice or a motor vehicle accident, you might be entitled to compensation. Hiring a talented, experienced brain injury lawyer is the key to recovery.
