Learn to spot the signs of concussion

If you receive a blow to the head, but it doesn't appear to have been too serious, your first instinct may be to laugh it off and get on with things. However, the symptoms of head injuries are not always immediately apparent. Thus, it is usually wise to seek medical attention in the wake of head trauma, even if you feel relatively well. Some symptoms can take months to manifest.

One common sort of head injury that many people in Maryland experience is a concussion. In many cases, the victims make a fast recovery and continue with their day-to-day lives without much interruption. However, some are not so lucky, and face a recovery process that can take months. Furthermore, if you have a subsequent concussion, it can take even longer again to recover.

It is important to be aware of the potential symptoms of a concussion. Even if some appear minor, they may still have a lasting effect. As is explained on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website, such symptoms can include:

  • Sleeping more or less than usual or struggling to get to sleep.
  • Trouble concentrating or taking in new information.
  • Nausea, dizziness or vomiting.
  • Blurred vision or headaches.
  • Fatigue.
  • Trouble thinking clearly.
  • Emotional trouble, such as anxiety or irritability.
  • Sensitivity to light or noise.

These are but a few things to look out for, but knowing how to identify a potential concussion can be invaluable.

If a head injury you suffered was caused by someone else, such as a medical professional, you may be able to claim compensation. An attorney can let you know your options and may be able to assist you in pursuing remuneration.
