Common symptoms of a concussion

Posted on April 7, 2015 12:13 pm under Car Accidents

A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury that affects more than 3 million Americans every year. Although concussion cases are oftentimes mild and may be treated with ample rest, some concussions are so severe that they may cause other health complications, including permanent brain impairment.

Some common symptoms of a concussion are headache, confusion, dizziness, tinnitus (ringing ears), slurred speech, and temporary loss of consciousness. Because a concussion alters the level of brain chemicals in the brain, an individual suffering from a concussion may also experience changes in his or her behavior and difficulty with physical coordination.

Unfortunately, several cases of concussion have been associated with another party’s negligence. Auto accidents resulting from reckless driving, for instance, remains among the most common causes of concussion and other traumatic brain injuries.
