Concussion

Concussions are a very common form of brain injury, but one that can often go unnoticed. While most people recover fully from a concussion, sometimes the long-term repercussions can be very serious.

A concussion occurs when your head suffers a blow that causes your brain to move rapidly back and forth inside your skull. The symptoms can be very subtle, and sometimes you may not even realise that you have a concussion.

Some of the symptoms may include:

  • Headache
  • Temporary loss of consciousness
  • Confusion
  • Amnesia
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Slurred speech
  • Fatigue

Given the serious nature of concussions, it is important to seek medical attention if you have any of the above symptoms, or if you have more serious effects such as continued vomiting or a headache that worsens over time.

Concussions are common in slip-and-falls, motor vehicle accidents, physical assaults and contact sports. Often someone who has suffered a concussion will not be able to attend work for a time, and may incur medical expenses.

Our Personal Injury Group has experience dealing in cases where an individual has incurred a concussion.  If it has been as a result of someone else’s negligence, you may be able to make a claim.
