What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Concussions

Concussions, though not generally thought of as particularly dangerous, may still be quite unnerving and uncomfortable for their victims. They are also known as mild brain traumatic injury (MBTI) because they do harm the brain but not in a significant or lasting manner. These injuries are sustained through a particularly large impact force, such as one sustained in a sports-related injury or in a car accident. Multiple concussions in succession with one another can lead to further, chronic problems or disabilities.

What is a concussion?

Concussions are mild forms of brain injuries that generally leave no lasting consequences. When a large impact force is delivered to the head, the brain is rattled around against the cranium’s interior. This motion and bumping causes the brain to suffer bruising and blood vessel damage. This damage will cause the following symptoms in affected individuals:

  • Headache
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Nausea/vomiting
  • Blurred vision
  • Confusion and memory loss
  • Extreme tiredness

If a victim experiences amnesia, several instances of vomiting, extreme confusion, or seriously compromised physical abilities, then he or she should seek immediate medical attention. Multiple concussions, which typically occur in those individuals involved in impact sports, may leave permanent brain damage.

If you have been hurt by a concussion that was the result of another person’s negligence, then you may have a right to damages. Call Jacksonville personal injury lawyer Donald Guthrie today to learn more about your legal rights in this situation.
