Underestimating a Concussion and the Consequences

Between sporting activities, minor car accidents and life mishaps, suffering a concussion isn’t uncommon. However, many people have adopted the idea that since it’s a frequent injury, that a concussion isn’t serious. The scientific journal Radiology has produced a study that shows quite different. In fact, it shows that a single concussion is enough to alter the structure of the brain.

The impact that a concussion has on the brain is enough that it could even lead to cognitive difficulties and a higher chance of depression. Research done on people that have suffered a mild traumatic brain injury confirmed decline in areas of the brain that are linked to executive function, mood regulation, and memory.

Brain injuries are often difficult to understand, but with scientific advances brain injury procedures help victims manage their losses and recover as much as possible. Although the procedures help a great deal, many can’t afford the necessary procedures in addition to lost wages and medical bills the occurred due to their accident. If you have suffered a brain injury as a result of someone’s negligent actions, compensation for medical bills, lost wages and therapy are possible with the right personal injury attorney.
