What is a Concussion?
A concussion is referred to as a mild traumatic brain injury (MBTI) that typically results from a blow to the head. While concussions are not usually life-threatening, the effects can be serious. The trauma causes the brain to strike against the skull, which can lead to bruising, bleeding, and nerve damage. When you suffer a concussion, your state of mind may be temporarily altered and you may or may not lose consciousness.
How Concussions Are Classified
Concussions are classified into three grades, based on the degree of severity:
Grade 1: A mild injury that results in no loss of consciousness and symptoms that last less than 15 minutes.
Grade 2: A moderate injury that involves no loss of consciousness and symptoms that last longer than 15 minutes.
Grade 3: A severe injury in which the victim loses consciousness for any length of time, even a few seconds.
Symptoms of Concussion Include:
- Blurred vision
- Loss of equilibrium
- Sensitivity to noise or light
- Fatigue, sleepiness
- Nausea and vomiting
- Memory loss
Symptoms of a concussion may or may not surface right away. In some cases, it may be days, months, or weeks later. For this reason, it is wise to seek medical treatment if you have been in an accident and hit your head. A doctor will be able to diagnose your concussion injury, and the medical report will serve as valuable evidence in your claim.
