Concussions

An estimated 355,000 visited the emergency room for traumatic brain injuries in 2010 according to a National Hospital Ambulatory Care Survey. Traumatic brain injuries may range from being mild to severe, and one of the most common forms of TBI is a concussion.

A concussion is a type of head injury that can be caused by a bump, blow or jolt to head and can occur from a fall, car accident or while playing sports.

Concussions during car crashes are likely due to the blunt force felt during a collision, even if an air bag deployed and the victim was wearing a seat belt.

Did you know that if you or a loved one has suffered from a concussion after a motor vehicle accident was caused by a careless driver, the victim may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages and more?

At the law offices of Simien & Simien, LLC, our attorneys have been helping injury victims throughout Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi for more than two decades and will fight for the justice that you deserve.

For a no-cost, no-obligation review of your concussion injury claim, fill out the “Free Case Evaluation” form to your right or call us today at 866-208-9311.

We proudly offer concussion injury victims 100 percent FREE consultations, and we don’t get paid unless we recover.

Signs And Symptoms Of A Concussion

The term concussion stems from a Latin word that means “to shake violently.” When this type of head injury occurs, the brain is shook violently from the blow to the head.

A number of signs can accompany a concussion, including physical and behavioral changes. Some common symptoms include:

Cognitive

  • Difficulty thinking clearly
  • Problems concentrating
  • Memory problems

Physical

  • Headaches
  • Blurry vision
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Problems balancing
  • Feeling tired
  • Dizziness
  • Sleeping more or less than usual
  • Insomnia

Behavioral

  • Feelings of sadness
  • Irritability
  • Nervousness or anxiety

It’s important to note that a person does not have to lose consciousness to suffer a concussion. Additionally, some symptoms may appear right away while others may not be noticed for days or months after the accident occurred. Sometimes, people may not recognize these as signs and symptoms while others will not admit that they are having these problems.

If you believe that you or a loved one has suffered a concussion, seek medical attention right away. Getting help soon after the concussion occurred may help speed up recovery. In rare cases, a dangerous blood clot may form in a person with a concussion and cause serious brain damage.
