Info About Concussions

Concussions are caused when the head is bumped, hit, or jolted, and may cause the brain to function differently. If the head is hit with enough force, the brain can move around in one's head, causing a significant amount of damage. Traumatic brain injuries can lead to bruising, damage to blood vessels, and injury to the nerves. Concussions can result from sports activities, a fall, or car accidents, and may lead to headaches, changes in alertness, or loss of consciousness. How long a person is unconscious for may relate to the severity of the concussion. Mild symptoms of concussions include acting confused, being drowsy, having a headache, feeling nauseous, or seeing flashing lights. Emergency symptoms may include convulsions, persistent confusion, unequal pupils, walking or balancing problems, or unconsciousness that persists (coma). If anyone who has suffered from head trauma and is experiencing emergency symptoms, they must seek medical assistance as soon as possible.

There are different types of concussions, and they are graded as mild, moderate, or severe. These grades depend on factors such as loss of consciousness, amnesia, and loss of equilibrium. When one is suffering from a mild concussion, symptoms will last for less than fifteen minutes, and consciousness will not be lost. If suffering from a moderate concussion, symptoms will last longer than fifteen minutes, but again, one will not lose consciousness. When someone loses consciousness, even if it is for a few seconds, that person is suffering from a severe concussion. One cannot be too cautious when suffering from a concussion. Seeking medical attention is advised for any type of concussion in order to find out how severe it is, and the appropriate treatment. CT scans, EEGs, or MRIs might be performed in order to rule out internal bleeding or any other form of serious brain injury. If you have suffered from a concussion, or any other form of traumatic brain injury, please contact the Dallas injury attorney at our firm today.
