Concussion is classed as a ‘mild’ traumatic brain injury and is a disturbance of brain function as a result of an impact to the head or shaking of the head. It can cause both short-term and long-term problems.
While most people recover from their symptoms within a few weeks, some can experience ongoing issues, which is often referred to as post-concussion syndrome.
Often concussion will not show up on a brain scan, but that does not mean symptoms will be any less serious. If you are experiencing ongoing symptoms, it’s important to consult with medical specialists who will be able to advise you on your injuries.
We understand the effects these types of injuries can have on families and the difficulties faced by people trying to access specialist advice following a concussion.
Concussion is common in road accidents, falls, sporting accidents and injuries caused by a criminal assault. However your concussion has been caused, you should visit your GP or your local A&E Department to make sure that there is not a more serious underlying injury.
If your injury was caused by another party, then you may be able to claim concussion compensation. If you are unsure or would just like some advice on if you do have a case to claim compensation, then why not speak to one of our solicitors?
