I HAVE A CONCUSSION FROM AN ACCIDENT—WHAT SHOULD I DO?

Concussion From an Accident

A concussion is a traumatic brain injury with symptoms that do not necessarily appear right away, and can cause long-term problems such as memory loss and cognitive functioning. If you or a loved one has been injured and could have a concussion, you should contact your doctor immediately and seek medical assistance.

WHAT CAUSES A CONCUSSION?

Concussions can be caused by a blow to the head or a forceful movement/shaking of the head. Therefore, it is not necessary that the skull be pierced or fractured. Sometimes what looks like a rather trifling event, could actually cause a significant concussion in some unfortunate circumstances. A concussion therefore occurs when the head is physically traumatized in some way. In this day and age, concussions are rampant as a result of such things as sports, slip and falls, and car accidents.

WHAT IS A CONCUSSION?

Some people believe concussions are minor until they experience one. When we are talking about the brain—nothing is minor. Concussions can also vary significantly in severity, with some people recovering fully, while others facing life-long symptoms that drastically affect their life. Additionally, sometimes those who have suffered concussions become more susceptible to a second or third (or greater) concussion. The severity of symptoms can also be compounded by the number of concussions an injured victim has endured.
