Concussions are mild traumatic brain injuries

Although concussions are classified as mild brain trauma, the consequences can be life-changing. Various activities of people in Ontario could cause mild traumatic brain injuries. Causes include vehicle accidents, sports injuries and more. Concussion victims could recover relatively quickly. However, in some cases, it could take months or longer.

A person who suffered a blow to the head, neck or face could feel confused or dazed immediately after the jolt. In some cases, the impact causes unconsciousness, and victims may not remember anything about the moments before and after the injuries. If any of these symptoms are present, it is best to have a medical evaluation as soon as possible.

The brain cells in the area of the brain trauma are vulnerable for days after the injury. Healing could take anything from days to months. Not all symptoms are immediately evident. Furthermore, some symptoms could worsen, particularly if the person participates in sports activities too soon. Also, those who had suffered concussions on previous occasions might take longer to heal, and there is an increased risk of permanent damage to brain cells.

If another party's negligence was the cause of brain injuries, the victim might have grounds to file a personal injury lawsuit in an Ontario civil court. If such a case is successfully presented in the court, it might lead to a monetary judgment, and the financial burden of medical treatment, therapy and lost income might be relieved. The documented list of damages could include past and future expenses, along with emotional damages like pain and suffering.
