What is a concussion?
A concussion is an injury affecting the brain, and develops when the brain comes into violent contact with the skull, causing it to swell.
There are many accidents that can lead to a concussion, ranging from sporting injuries to car accidents, slips, falling debris and more. A concussion is termed a minor traumatic brain injury, and can lead to a number of unpleasant and debilitating side effects. These can include dizziness, headaches and migraines, depression and mood swings, difficulty sleeping and drowsiness.
The extent of the injury will determine for how long the patient experiences these symptoms, but for many people, the repercussions of a concussion can be persistent and ongoing. This can make everything from household chores to going to work difficult, negatively impacting every aspect of the victims life. If you have suffered a concussion, you may be entitled to make a compensation injury claim in Chesterfield if you were not at fault for the accident in which you sustained it.
