Concussions are a common type of traumatic brain injury that are often thought of as mild but can be severe and cause permanent damage or even death. When another person’s negligence causes someone to have a concussion, it may be possible to recover compensation for damages through a traumatic brain injury lawsuit. With this in mind, let’s take a look at some of the signs of a concussion and how to file a traumatic brain injury lawsuit.

About Concussions 

A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury (TBI). A concussion is generally considered a mild form of TBI, but all concussions affect brain function. 

Concussions can happen when the head or upper body sustains a blow hard enough to force the brain to move within the skull. When the brain hits the inner walls of the skull, it can cause injury to the brain, resulting in problems with brain function and causing a concussion.

A concussion can happen anytime the head or upper body sustains a hit or force strong enough to cause the brain to move but are most commonly caused by falls, car accidents, and sports. 

What Are the Signs of a Concussion?

Concussions have a wide range of symptoms, which are usually temporary and resolve quickly but sometimes the injury can be severe enough to cause bleeding in the brain and even death. Because of this, it’s important that people who have had a concussion are monitored closely in the hours following their injury and seek emergency care if symptoms become worse. 

Some signs to be aware of that may indicate a concussion has occurred include:

  • Nausea 
  • Headache
  • Vomiting
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Blurry vision
  • Drowsiness
  • Confusion
  • Dizziness

Filing a Traumatic Brain Injury Lawsuit 

Suffering from a concussion can have a significant impact in someone’s life. Treating a concussion can lead to expensive medical bills, loss of work and wages, loss of future wages or earning potential, and significant emotional trauma. 

When a concussion was caused by another person’s negligence, like someone driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, it may be possible to recover damages though filing a traumatic brain injury lawsuit.  

How Can an Attorney Help?

When considering filing a traumatic brain injury lawsuit in Dallas, one of the first steps should be hiring an attorney. An attorney can navigate you through the process of filing a lawsuit as well as building a strong case.
