Concussions and Auto Accidents
A Jacksonville law firm that can help you recover
Concussions are one of the many common injuries sustained in auto accidents. They are typically caused by the impact of rear-end accidents or head-on collisions. Whiplash is a common factor leading to a concussion. The sharp back-and-forth movement of the victim’s head can cause the brain to shake violently, resulting in a head injury. Concussions can also be caused by blunt trauma to the head, most commonly by hitting the steering wheel, headrest, window or windshield at a high impact.

Recognize the symptoms of a concussion
Following an accident, seeking medical attention should be one of the first steps in securing your claim and health. Concussions can manifest in many ways and the symptoms may not always be immediately present. Sometimes it can take hours or days to feel the impact of a concussion. Failure to seek medical attention increases the likelihood of experiencing serious complications over time.
