Watch out for signs of concussions

On the roads, on the sports field, at a store, at work, at home: There are a wide range of places where you could suffer head trauma. There are a variety of injuries that can come from accidents that caused blows to the head. This includes concussions, a type of traumatic brain injury.

Concussions vary greatly in their symptoms. For one, they can differ considerably in how long it takes symptoms to show. They also vary in the kinds of symptoms they present. In today’s post, we will go over the four main classes of concussion signs noted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The sleep signs of concussions

For one, a concussion can have impacts on your sleep. Sleep issues that can be signs of this type of injury include: having difficulty sleeping, sleeping less than you normally do or sleeping more than is typical for you.

The physical signs of concussions

There are also a range of shifts in your physical health you could see following a concussion. Examples of common physical symptoms of concussions include:

  • Balance issues
  • Dizziness
  • Drowsiness
  • Headaches
  • Light sensitivity
  • Nausea
  • Noise sensitivity
  • Vomiting
  • Vision issues

The emotional signs of concussions

Additionally, a concussion could trigger changes in your mood or emotions. This could include feeling more emotional. It could also include increased feelings of nervousness, irritability or sadness.

The cognitive signs of concussions

You could experience certain things related to your thinking following a concussion. This includes difficulties with thinking clearly, thinking quickly or concentrating. Memory problems are also among the possible cognitive symptoms of a concussion.

The importance of detecting concussions

Given their range of symptoms, concussions aren’t always an easy thing to detect. However, spotting such traumatic brain injuries is important. When a concussion goes undetected, a person could miss out on things that could help with their recovery. Also, it could keep a person from taking steps to help prevent their injury from getting worse or leading to other injuries. So, after suffering head trauma, you may want to keep a close eye out for signs of a concussion.

Knowing what injuries you have suffered in connection to head trauma can also be important from a legal perspective. In some instances, legal claims can be brought by head trauma victims in relation to the accident in which they were hurt. When fighting for compensation for an injury, among the things that could have impacts are what arguments and evidence are presented regarding the specific effects of the injury. Skilled attorneys can help concussions victims pursuing injury compensation claims with building arguments and gathering evidence for their case.
