Common Concussion Symptoms
One of the many issues with pinpointing a concussion is determining whether the symptoms are due to a concussion or another type of brain injury. Concussions can cause permanent damage to the brain and the nervous system due to the traumatic event or due to brain damage that can occur while symptoms are dissipating.
The following symptoms may indicate a concussion has occurred:
- Steady headache
- Unfocused vision or double-vision
- Sensitivity to light
- Ringing in the ears
- Feelings of confusion
- Loss of attentiveness
- Post-traumatic amnesia
- Vacant gaze
- Slurred or labored speech
- Unusual emotiveness
Following a concussion, there are few treatment options available beyond resting and carefully checking for any further loss of cognitive faculties. This may cause sufferers to miss time at work while recovering or go through expensive medical tests to check for more serious complications.
If another party has injured you or someone you love, you may have grounds for legal action. For more information regarding your rights and legal options as an injury victim, contact the Denver traumatic brain injury lawyers of Hull & Zimmerman, P.C., at (303) 423-1770 today.
