Concussion is a common injury following an accident usually caused by a blow to the head. If you have suffered concussion as a result of an accident that wasn’t your fault, you could make a compensation claim for personal injury.
Concussion is the most common and least serious form of traumatic brain injury, usually occurring following a blow or jolt to the head. The impact has the cause of shaking the brain inside the skull and temporarily disrupting normal brain function.
A loss of consciousness can occur but does not always happen.
This type of injury can occur following many types of accident, but most commonly happens after one of the following accidents:
The major symptoms of concussion include headache, nausea, vomiting, dizziness and slurred speech. The individual suffering from concussion may get easily confused, as lack of concentration is also a common side effect. Short-term memory loss could also potentially occur.
If you have suffered concussion following an accident that was not your fault, you should immediately contact a personal injury solicitor with experience in this area.
If, for example, you have suffered concussion following a road traffic accident or from another type of personal injury, it’s essential to seek the assistance of a legal team who has knowledge and expertise in this area.
Once you provide them with all the information in relation to the accident you’ll be advised on the likely success of your claim as well as the potential levels of compensation.
The potential levels of compensation for concussion will depend on the extent of the actual injury you have suffered (pain and suffering) as well as any additional losses (financial expenses) that may have occurred.
Financial expenses may include loss of earnings, medical expenses and travel expenses – these will all be included in your claim. How much you receive will depend on the individual nature of your case.
