What is post-concussion syndrome?

A concussion is a serious and often traumatic brain injury that can significantly impact a victim's health. Individuals who suffer blows to the head in car accidents and other personal injury events should always seek medical attention to ensure that they have not sustained life-threatening harm. However, even a mild or moderate concussion may seriously affect the long-term health of a Virginia accident victim.

That is because concussions can lead to post-concussion syndrome. Post-concussion syndrome is a complicated condition that can manifest differing symptoms in different people and they can last for various durations of time. Many individuals who develop post-concussion syndrome experience pain in the form of headaches, dizziness, and other complications for weeks and even months after sustaining their injuries.

Aside from pain and disorientation, post-concussion syndrome can change a person's demeanor. It may cause them to become irritable or anxious. It may impact their memory or make them feel fatigue, too. Concussion victims who develop post-concussion syndrome can also experience sensitivities to light and sound, affected vision, and even problems with their sleep.

This post does not offer its readers any legal or medical advice, and individuals who are having health problems after suffering concussions are encouraged to speak with medical professionals. After sustaining a concussion, a victim may need time to recuperate as they deal with the effects of post-concussion syndrome. They may choose to seek the assistance of personal injury attorneys at that time so that they can preserve information related to their possible claims, learn more about their legal rights, and begin to consider their options for seeking compensation to aid in their recoveries.
