Just because you cannot see the initial signs of a concussion following a serious injury, it does not mean that you are not suffering from one. In fact, New Jersey concussion attorneys always recommend that accident victims seek medical attention following a serious accident, even though they may feel fine or do not experience any immediate signs of injuries.
Symptoms of a Concussion
Concussions, which are a type of injury to the brain, are often termed the silent injury because the signs and symptoms are typically invisible until much later. As such, most accident victims do not experience any symptoms of a concussion until days or weeks later.
Most concussions are difficult to diagnose without the help of a trained physician. However, experienced New Jersey concussion attorneys who are familiar with even the subtlest signs of a concussion may be able to detect the injury during the initial interview. Some of the signs that are common to a concussion injury include:
- Vomiting or the constant feeling of nausea
- Frequent headaches and dizziness
- Eyesight trouble or double vision
- Any degree of loss of memory
- Being in a daze or confused
- Ringing in the ears
Compensation for Concussion Injuries
Concussions have not always been given the same serious attention as other brain injuries. However, concussions are now understood to be a very serious injury with dangerous consequences that may last a lifetime. And while concussions are often the result of a sports injury, victims of other accidents caused by the negligent actions of a third party may also suffer a concussion.
Regardless of what caused your concussion, you may be entitled to compensation. With the assistance of a knowledgeable New Jersey concussion attorney, you can recover compensation for your medical expenses, loss of wages and pain and suffering.
