A concussion is a serious injury that requires medical help

There is never a good time to suffer a blow to the head, as this can result in serious injury, such as a concussion.

There are many types of accidents that can result in a concussion, including but not limited to a motor vehicle crash or slip and fall.

Many people believe that a concussion is only serious if they lose consciousness, but nothing could be further from the truth. It's imperative to receive medical attention after any blow to the head, as symptoms don't always present right away.

There are three grades of concussion, including:

  • Grade 1: No loss of consciousness, but confusion that lasts less than 15 minutes
  • Grade 2: No loss of consciousness, but confusion that lasts more than 15 minutes
  • Grade 3: Loss of consciousness, regardless of how long

The most important thing to remember is that there are many forms of treatment for a concussion.

At our law firm, we have experience helping people who have suffered a concussion as the result of another person's negligence. For example, this often happens when someone is injured in a car accident.

If you or a loved one suffers a concussion, don't wait to learn more about your injury, the short- and long-term impact and the best type of treatment.

Depending on your circumstances, you may be able to seek compensation from another person, such as a driver or landlord. You'll have a lot going on around you, but it's important to receive the right medical treatment at the right time. From there, you can focus on your legal rights.
