You might be aware that if you’ve been injured in an accident you have the right to seek compensation as an accident victim in Kings Lynn and West Norfolk. Compensation may be awarded to you if you can prove that the accident was not your fault but was caused by the actions or negligence of another party.
Head injuries are extremely common in the aftermath of an accident. One of the most common types of head injury is concussion. The full medical term for a concussion is a “Minor Traumatic Brain Injury”. However short lived or minor the symptoms might appear, no brain injury should ever be taken lightly and it is therefore very important that anyone showing symptoms of a concussion be thoroughly examined and treated to ensure there is no lasting damage.
Common symptoms might include:
- Confusion: either showing as a lack of awareness or a delay in answering questions
- Loss of balance
- Feeling stunned or dazed
- Memory loss
- Altered vision (such as blurring, seeing flashing lights or stars)
In many cases, the symptoms of concussion will soon fade and the victim will have no lasting damage. However, in other cases the concussion may be a sign of more lasting damage.
