Learn How Concussion Injuries Happen
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) defines a concussion as a “bump, blow, or jolt to the head or by a hit to the body that causes the head and brain to move rapidly back and forth.” The sudden motion can result in damaged brain cells and chemical changes in the brain.
According to Mayo Clinic, a concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury (TBI). The severity of your or your loved one’s injury can vary greatly. In some instances, a concussion will completely resolve after a few months. In other instances a concussion can have lifelong effects, causing chronic pain, limit your ability to perform daily activities, and require medical treatment for decades.
A concussion can result from a variety of traumatic accidents due to the negligence of others. The most common causes of a concussion that we have handled includes:
- Traffic accidents: These accidents may involve a car, truck, or motorcycle operated by a drunk, distracted, aggressive, or otherwise negligent driver.
- Slip and fall accidents: These accidents may cause a victim to fall due to a property owner or other responsible party failing to repair known hazards, such as broken stairs or walkways, torn carpets or inoperable parking lot lights.
- Construction and workplace accidents: These accidents may occur because of unsafe practices of a General Contractor or other party working at a job site
The long-term effects of a concussion can impact your or your loved one’s cognitive and motor functions. Changes in behavior, emotions, and the ability to experience sensations, such as touch and taste, are also possible.
Your or your loved one’s life might not return to the way it was before the accident. Because of the potentially catastrophic effects of a concussion, the experienced lawyers at Dansker & Aspromonte Associates will carefully investigate the full range of medical and emotional injuries you sustained so that we can seek fair and just compensation for you that takes all of your damages into consideration.
