How much do you know about concussion injuries?

Concussion is an injury that results from an impact to the head. This can be a direct impact with a stationary object such as in a road traffic accident, or the result of a slip, trip or fall. There are many different reasons as to how you develop concussion and many more symptoms as a result.

Here are some of the most common symptoms of concussion:

  • Dizziness
  • Nausea
  • Cognitive issues
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Problems with eyesight and hearing
  • Headaches

The above list is only a small representation of the many symptoms and side-effects that can result from concussion. The symptoms will vary from person to person and those listed above are listed as the most common and generally those that are used as a benchmark to identify concussion.
