Car Accident Lawyers MN – Concussion Lost Consciousness

CONCUSSION OR BLACKED OUT FROM CAR ACCIDENT – MN ATTORNEY

Our car accident lawyers have seen many cases where people “black out” or are temporarily unconscious after a collision. Often, they suffer a direct blow to the head, hitting the steering wheel or the headrest.  However, sometimes it happens just by the violence of the person’s head being whipped back and forth – without hitting anything. A head injury like that often results in a concussion that can last for days or even more than a year. Symptoms from a concussion can include headaches, light or noise sensitivity, and more.

Treatment for a concussion injury can range from just rest to extensive physical therapy that takes many months. Unfortunately, if symptoms persistent, people will sometimes have to miss time from work or school. This results in loss of time and money, plus the treatment itself can be expensive. Concussion symptoms can be scary as well as disruptive. One of the biggest concerns is permanent brain injury.  Fortunately, in most cases the concussion symptoms gradually go away.  However, there are cases where the symptoms last a very long time or are permanent.
