Do you understand the details of a concussion?

Many people have heard the word "concussion" time and time again, but some don't truly understand what it means. To start, you should understand that this is a traumatic brain injury that requires immediate treatment.

Typically, a concussion is caused by a blow to the head, such as during a sporting event or in a motor vehicle accident. However, just because there is no physical sign of injury, such as bruises or scrapes, it doesn't mean you didn't suffer a concussion.

It is a common misconception that everyone who suffers a concussion will lose consciousness. This can happen, but it's not the case across the board.

Even though a concussion is considered a traumatic brain injury, it is not as serious as many other types. For this reason, as long as the injury is diagnosed and treated in the appropriate manner, most people make a full recovery.

Even if a person makes a full recovery, a concussion means that the brain is now more sensitive to damage. For this reason, it's essential to avoid physical activity during the recovery phase.

Finally, multiple concussions increase the likelihood of lingering side effects, including but not limited to difficulty learning and memory loss.

If you hit your head and have reason to believe you've suffered a concussion, don't wait to seek medical attention. You never know if your problem is much more serious than you believe, such as bleeding on your brain.

Once you've recovered, you can revisit the accident that caused your concussion to determine if a third party is negligent for your injury.
