Concussion Injury Lawyer in San Francisco

What is a Concussion?

A concussion is a brain injury that occurs when an external force impacts the head. There are a variety of levels of severity for concussions, with mild injuries often leaving victims feeling dazed or losing consciousness momentarily. Serious concussions can include much longer loss of consciousness with extensive recovery time, or long term or permanent brain damage.

Concussions can be caused by a number of different incidents including car accidents, high-impact hits in contact sports, or blunt-force trauma from an external object striking the head.

The Effects of a Concussion

Concussions differ in severity, and it can be very difficult to treat this type of head injury due to the fact that symptoms may differ depending on the specific incident and victim. Those who suffer from concussions can experience headaches, dizziness, nausea or vomiting, blurred vision, loss of consciousness, amnesia and many other symptoms consistent with head injuries.

The effects of a concussion can be short-term or can have lasting effects with no specific time frame for recovery. Medical professionals in the field of brain injuries acknowledge that the final outcome of a serious concussion is unknown, as it can vary so widely from victim to victim.
