Claim compensation for a concussion and post-concussion depression
If you work on a construction site or in a factory or warehouse, you may be at increased risk of sustaining a head injury.
Classed as a mild traumatic brain injury, a concussion occurs after the head undergoes a trauma, and the brain is shaken and comes into contact with the skull. When this happens, the brain can swell, causing a number of unpleasant and debilitating side effects to occur:
- Difficulty sleeping
- Headaches and migraines
A number of people that suffer a concussion go on to suffer post-concussion syndrome, also known as post-concussion depression. This can lead to a number of side effects, including mood swings, difficulty sleeping and irritability, which can make your life all the more difficult.
