Have you suffered a concussion?
Although a concussion isn’t normally considered to be a very serious head injury, it is still an injury that requires medical intervention and monitoring. As with any type of head injury, it can be difficult to determine exactly how extensive the damage is so it’s important to get professional help as soon as possible.
If you’ve fallen or hit your head on something, it’s entirely possible that you’ll experience a concussion. However, doctors may perform a range of tests and scans to ensure that you’ve haven’t sustained any additional damage.
If you’ve suffered a head injury, you may already know how you could develop concussion. This type of head injury is actually very common and patients do normally go on to make a full recovery. However, the symptoms of concussion can be unpleasant and may include head pain and nausea.
When treating concussion, doctors may offer a range of advice and your treatment may depend on how the injury occurred so you will need to individual tailored advice from a medical professional. Whilst it’s essential to get medical help for any type of head injury, you will also need to have received medical help if you’re thinking about claiming for concussion.
Are you planning to take legal action?
If you’ve suffered a head injury and it was caused by someone else, they should be held liable. Even if they didn’t intend to harm you, you could still take action against them and you should be able to obtain compensation.
If someone bumped into you and caused you to fall over, for example, you could make a claim for any injuries you sustained. Alternatively, if you hit your head and developed concussion as a result of a car accident or public transport collision, you should be able to take action against the road user responsible.
Although the long term effects of concussion aren’t normally serious, some people may develop other injuries or suffer from complications. Providing you’ve sought medical help and your injury is monitored, there shouldn’t be any cause for concern.
However, even if the injury is temporary, it could still be worth making a claim and you may be surprised at how much compensation you’re entitled to. If you’d like to know how much your claim could be worth, just take our 30-second test now.
