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.

Concussion is one of the most common brain injuries and many people will experience it in their lifetime. In most cases, people recover from their symptoms within a few weeks. However, for some people, problems can persist long term and this is usually referred to as post-concussion syndrome.

Diagnosing Concussion

Often concussion will not show up on a brain scan, but that does not mean symptoms will be any less serious. It is important that if you are experiencing ongoing symptoms you consult with medical specialists who will be able to advise you on your injuries.

We understand the difficulties faced by people trying to access specialist advice following a concussion and also understand the effects these types of injuries can have on your day to day life.

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.

Can I claim compensation for a concussion?

If the concussion was caused by another party, then you may be able to claim for 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?

We offer FREE no obligation advice, allowing you to make the best, most informed decision on whether you can proceed with a claim.
