Causes of Concussions

When accidents occur, one of the most frightening injuries to sustain is head trauma, as it may affect the brain function of the victim. One head injury to look out for after an accident is a concussion. Although many do not immediately realize anything is wrong, if left untreated, concussions can lead to far more serious consequences than simple bruising and dizziness.

When a concussion has been sustained due to the negligent actions of someone else, legal action can be taken. Not only can the responsible party be held accountable, but you may be able to receive financial compensation to cover the cost of medical expenses and any other damages.

Accidents That May Result in a Concussion

Some accidents that commonly result in head injuries, including concussions, include:

  • Car or motorcycle accidents
  • Sports
  • Industrial accidents
  • Falling objects
  • Negligence of others

It is important to be aware of situations where an accident may occur, and if you are injured, to ensure that you have not suffered a concussion. If your accident has occurred because of someone else’s irresponsible actions, contact a personal injury attorney to learn about your legal options.
