Short-term and long-term symptoms of a concussion injury may include nausea, vomiting, increased sensitivity to light, double vision, mood swings, difficulty concentrating, memory loss and/or a personality change. Someone who suffers a concussion may develop intermittent migraines or migraine-like pain.
Medical experts tell us that after suffering a concussion, a person should rest to help ensure the most complete healing. Repeated concussions such as those suffered by many young football players can have long-term consequences.
To help ensure that a person with a concussion recovers physically as well as possible, it is important for him or her to get prompt medical evaluation and treatment. It is also important to follow doctors’ orders. Ignoring a concussion can lead to unnecessary complications and exacerbation of symptoms.
It is also important to get qualified legal advice. Trapp & Geller offers free consultations for people who have suffered concussions in any kind of accident, such as:
- A crash
- A fall on ice
- A fall from a high place
- A car accident
- A sports injury
- A fall in a nursing home
If we represent you, our overriding concern will be to ensure your wellbeing by any means that we can. Recovering maximum available compensation for you after a concussion injury can give you access to the resources needed to get top-notch therapy.
