A concussion may be a bigger deal than you think

On behalf of Goldstein Goldstein

A car accident can result in injuries that range from relatively minor to those causing permanent disability. The true impact of the physical damage may not be known for days, even weeks, later, especially if you have a traumatic brain injury.

Concussions are one of the most common types of TBIs suffered in car accidents, yet victims may be unaware of the true nature of their injury until later. Often dismissed as a minor injury, concussions can have lingering, painful consequences on the life of a New Jersey motor vehicle accident victim.

The effects of a concussion

While many people recover well from a concussion, others may find that the effects last much longer than expected. Some of the possible symptoms that may negatively impact a victim’s life include:

  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Lingering headaches
  • Problems with fatigue or nausea
  • Sensitivity to light or noise
  • Memory problems
  • Anxiety, nervousness or difficulty sleeping

With any of these symptoms, it can be difficult to return to everyday life. Resuming a normal work schedule or participating in regular activities may seem nearly impossible. A concussion can affect your ability to earn a living and enjoy a certain quality of life.

Getting better after a concussion

Recovery from a concussion depends on a number of factors, including the severity of the impact and the victim’s health before the accident. Recovery needs differ on a case-by-case basis, but may include:

  • Time off work
  • Avoiding physical activities that may be strenuous
  • Getting medical attention and care as needed
  • Getting extra rest and easing back into normal activities

If you suffered a concussion in an accident, you may find that it has a far-reaching effect into various areas of your life, including your finances, your career and your social life. This type of injury should be taken seriously, and, if your suffering is the result of the reckless or negligent actions of another person, you should be fairly compensated.

Your rights as an accident victim

After receiving a diagnosis of a concussion after a car accident, you would be wise to take both your injury and your potential legal options seriously. Despite the fact that concussions are not normally considered traumatic, they can be debilitating and cause extensive negative consequences for innocent accident victims. You have rights, and you are entitled to a full and fair recovery if you suffered a concussion because of the negligent actions of another person.
