Concussions are typically relatively minor brain injuries that are sustained by blows to the head. They are common in activities that involve a lot of high-impact forces, such as participation in sports. While there are different classifications of this injury based on the severity of the damage done, concussions are generally not considered to be life-threatening. These brain injuries do, however, have the potential to leave the victim with both short and long-term complications.
If you or someone close to you has suffered from a concussion, you deserve to obtain compensation from the party responsible for the injury. The Minneapolis concussion injury attorneys of Walker Law Office can help you stand up for your rights ad obtain what you deserve.
The Signs and Symptoms of Concussion
Anyone who actively participates in high-impact activities should be aware of the common signs and symptoms of a concussion. No matter how severe the injury is, if one is exhibiting signs that he or she may have suffered from a concussion, proper medical attention should be sought right away. Typically, those suffering from this type of brain injury will experience the following symptoms:
- Nausea and/or vomiting
- Ringing in the ears
- A change in personality or emotions (irritability)
- A loss of communication or comprehension abilities
If you or someone you know has suffered from a concussion, then you should be aware that this injury does have the potential to cause future complications. If you suffer another head impact too soon after the initial concussion, then you could suffer from second impact syndrome, which has the potential to be fatal.
