A concussion is a mild traumatic brain injury typically caused by an extreme blow to the head or even an intense shake or jolt of the head. Concussions are very common especially in car accidents but do not generally cause permanent damage however, any injury to the head is not to be taken lightly. It is possible that a concussion victim may not develop symptoms until day or weeks after the accident. When filing a claim for your auto accident after sustaining a concussion, you have the opportunity to ask for compensation due to pain and suffering and if work was missed, any lost wages during the time it took to recover. It’s important to seek medical treatment after the accident to ensure you receive the most compensation possible.
