Dealing with Concussion Symptoms

April 2018

Concussions are caused by moderate to severe head trauma.  Motor vehicle collisions can result in concussions due to the forces placed on a person's head.  A car wreck can place forces on the brain moving it from side to side and backwards and forwards.  If concussion symptoms last beyond three weeks, a doctor may make a diagnosis of post-concussion syndrome.  Post-concussion syndrome can be a permanent diagnosis leading to a lifetime of pain and suffering.

At the present time, there is no cure for post-concussion syndrome.  To deal with the symptoms, a doctor may recommend rest and the avoidance of stressful activity.  Pain-relievers are commonly prescribed to deal with the continuing headaches.

At Herrick & Hart, we have helped the injured who deal with post-concussion syndrome. We have represented the injured for over 65 years.  We offer a free consultation on personal injury cases.
