The serious impact of a concussion

Any type of blow to the head, such as one suffered during a motor vehicle accident, has the potential to cause a concussion.

Note: You may not immediately experience the side effects of a concussion, which is why it's always a good idea to receive medical treatment. Assuming that everything is okay with your health could cause additional problems.

Generally speaking, there are three types of concussion:

-- Grade 1: no loss of consciousness with confusion lasting for less than 15 minutes

-- Grade 2: no loss of consciousness with confusion lasting for more than 15 minutes

-- Grade 3: loss of consciousness, regardless of the length of time

A concussion can have a serious impact on your current level of health, as well as your future. This is even more so the case if you have a past history of concussions, as each subsequent injury can cause additional harm.

At our law firm, we understand the seriousness of a concussion. Over the years, we have represented clients who have suffered this injury as the result of a car accident, slip-and-fall, and many other circumstances.

If you have any reason to believe you have suffered a head injury, such as a concussion, don't wait to receive medical attention. With the proper diagnostic testing, it won't be long before you better understand your situation and the type of treatment you require.

Depending on the circumstances of your accident and injury, you may also want to learn more about your legal rights. It's possible that you could be in position to receive compensation for your injuries and other damages.
