What is a Concussion?
A concussion is a brain injury caused by when the brain impacts the inner skull. In many cases, a concussion causes temporary side effects and symptoms, all of which can be quite concerning and potentially dangerous. If someone with a concussion does not take the necessary precautions and rest as recommended, the damage could be permanent. This is also true when someone suffers more than one concussion in their lifetime.
What are the Warning Signs of a Concussion?
Some of the most common warning signs of a concussion include:
- Frequent headaches
- Poor balance
- Nausea or vomiting
- Difficulty sleeping
- Memory loss
Don’t underestimate the seriousness of these symptoms. If you suspect you have a concussion, seek immediate medical care. In some cases, you might not experience these symptoms until several days after your injury. Let a doctor examine you right away to be safe.
What is a Traumatic Brain Injury?
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a brain injury that has the potential to cause permanent consequences. Because any harm to the brain carries this risk, most brain injuries are technically TBIs. There are even “mild” TBIs in medical contexts, even though that might seem like a paradox.
Common traumatic brain injuries include:
- Bleeding in the brain (hemorrhage)
- Blood clotting in the brain (hematoma)
- Swelling in the brain (edema)
- Chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE)
- Penetrating brain injury
Whatever type of traumatic brain injury you’re dealing with, if you or a loved one suffered a TBI in an accident, make sure you get the medical care you need immediately. If not treated promptly, some TBIs can be fatal.
How Can I Tell If I Have a Concussion or TBI?
It’s often very hard to tell if you have a concussion or a traumatic brain injury. The symptoms can be extremely similar if the harm has not caused an outward head injury, like a laceration or bone break. To be safe, see a medical professional immediately. Only a medical expert can accurately diagnose your symptoms to determine if you have a concussion or a TBI.

Our law firm has experience handling all types of TBI cases that involve all sorts of accidents and incidents. If someone else’s negligence caused your brain injury, then you can trust that we will know how to investigate your case and pursue your claim to the fullest of our abilities.
Violent accidents are often the cause of brain injuries and concussions, such as:
- Auto accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Truck accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Work accidents
- Sports accidents
