Symptoms of a Concussion

  1. 1. Symptoms of a Concussion presented by Findlay Personal Injury Lawyers
  2. 2. Concussions are one of the most common types of traumatic brain injury, typically caused by a blow to the head or forceful shaking of the head.
  3. 3. It is possible to have a concussion without realizing it. In addition, symptoms can take days or even weeks to present, so you should see a doctor as soon as possible after an accident to see if you may have sustained a brain injury.
  4. 4. Nausea and vomiting Nausea and vomiting are very common signs of concussion. You may also experience dizziness or ringing in the ears. If you are experiencing these symptoms after being in an accident, see a doctor right away.
  5. 5. Personality changes If a person has sustained a traumatic brain injury, their entire personality may change. If a loved one who was formerly kind and talkative is now moody and irritable, it may be the result of a severe concussion. Depression and other psychological problems may also occur.
  6. 6. Memory loss Memory loss, especially surrounding the traumatic event, is a symptom of concussion. In addition, victims may have trouble concentrating and remembering small tasks.
  7. 7. Chronic headaches Headaches or migraines are a common symptom of concussion that can last well past the time of the accident. Sensitivity to light and noise may increase as well.
  8. 8. Confusion Confusion, slurred speech, and delayed response can also be signs of concussion. Concussed people also often feel "foggy" and dazed.
  9. 9. Concussion can have lasting negative effects on a person and their family and friends. If you or a loved one has suffered from a concussion caused by someone else's negligence, please don't hesitate to contact Findlay Personal Injury Lawyers for a free legal consultation.
