Have you ever wondered what a concussion is? A concussion is a mild traumatic brain injury. Most victims suffer a concussion after a blow to the head.
What you may also not know is that the initial concussion can lead to more problems, such as post-concussion syndrome. Symptoms sometimes don’t occur until seven to ten days from the initial accident.
If you have suffered a recent concussion you should look for symptoms that include headaches, dizziness, anxiety, irritability, fatigue, insomnia, loss of memory and concentration and sensitivity to light and noise.
The next question you need to consider is what caused the concussion. Were you involved in some sort of accident, such as a Santa Monica car accident, which was a result from negligence by someone else? If so, you may be able to hold the other person liable and recover compensation. It is imperative that you seek legal advice to determine if you have a case.
You might be able to seek compensation to help you pay for your mounting medical bills and possible loss of wages resulting from the accident.
