A concussion is one of the most common head injuries. But, despite its prevalence, a concussion can have serious ramifications that lead to long-term injuries that affect a person and their family forever.
Here is how a serious concussion is described by Popular Science: “Picture the brain as a bowl of grey spaghetti that is suddenly flung out of an airplane1.” The striking visual of noodles being stretched and snapped from the pressure shows just how dangerous a concussion can be.
For some people, the symptoms of a concussion can last up to a year. For others, the changes to the composition of the brain can have long-lasting consequences that lead to more serious complications like degenerative diseases.
But, if someone else was responsible for causing a concussion, there may be a way to get compensation for medical costs and pain and suffering. Learn more about how you might be able to get the justice you deserve with the help of an attorney.
