A Trusted Columbus Concussion Car Accident Lawyer

Suffering a head injury of any kind can be a terrifying experience, especially when you have sustained it from the negligent acts of another person. In the United States, the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) has found that between 1.7 and 3 million sports and recreational-related concussions occur each year. UPMC also found that about 5 in 10 concussions go unreported or undetected.

Concussions, whether you receive one from a total accident caused by negligence or from someone who intends harm to you, are serious injuries. They can have a long-lasting impact on a victim and may affect your daily life and ability to work.

Typically caused by blunt force trauma, concussions require immediate care – whether you have received one from a car accident, a truck accident, or a fall. Medical care can be expensive, and you may also have other losses to handle in the aftermath of receiving a concussion. And that is where working with a Columbus concussion injury lawyer comes in.

Signs and Symptoms of a Concussion

Disclaimer: This section does not entail medical advice. It is general information meant to educate. If you believe you may have a concussion, please seek medical attention from a professional.

Concussions, also known as mild traumatic brain injuries, are a very common injury that millions of Americans suffer yearly. Concussions can be recovered from, but the symptoms can last for months or longer.

When a concussion does happen, some of the common signs and symptoms are:

  • Dizziness
  • Loss of balance
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Headaches
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Sleepiness
  • Slurred speech
  • Listlessness and changes in behavior
  • Mental confusion and difficulty concentrating
  • Irritability

Symptoms to keep an eye out for especially in children include sleepiness and changes in behavior.

Concussion symptoms can develop immediately, but they may also not develop for hours to days after an accident has happened. Mayo Clinic notes that concussion symptoms can last “days, weeks or even longer.”

With the potential long-term effects of a concussion, your ability to live your daily life and work can be impacted. You may be unable to perform daily tasks that you were able to do prior to the accident, such as being on a computer for long periods of time or even just moving around your home without feeling nauseous.

These effects make it extremely difficult for individuals to live, work, study, and go about their day.
