Just the thought of sustaining an injury to the brain can be scary. These injuries can have serious impacts on one’s life. Brain injuries range from mild to severe. A concussion is a type of brain injury. Concussions can happen from a variety of causes, and they don’t just happen to athletes, such as football players. They also happen to people that have been negligently inured in an accident that was not their fault. Many people consider taking legal action when they have sustained a concussion from an accident.
Basically, a concussion is a traumatic injury to the brain. Cognitive functioning is temporarily impacted. Symptoms include headaches, problems focussing, memory, and balance. Most symptoms resolve in a few days, weeks, and sometimes months.
