What is post-concussion syndrome?

When you sustain a concussion in a Los Angeles bicycle accident, auto accident or slip and fall, you are at risk of experiencing a complication known as post-concussion syndrome.  This medical condition is poorly understood, according to MayoClinic.com, and can cause your concussion symptoms to linger for weeks, even months.

Some of the symptoms of post-concussion syndrome include headaches, difficulty concentrating, behavioral changes and irritability.

It should also be noted that people who have had a concussion, double their risk of becoming epileptic within the first five years following the brain injury.

If you or a loved one has sustained a brain injury caused by someone else’s carelessness, you may be able to obtain compensation.  Contact a California brain injury lawyer at (800) 989-6385 for more information.
