Have you been injured?
A concussion is a traumatic brain injury caused by either a hit to the head or violent shaking of the head. Millions of concussions occur each year, many of which could have been prevented.
The most common causes of a concussion include:
- Automobile-related injuries
- Being struck by or against an obstacle
- Sports-related injuries
Some people can have a concussion or traumatic brain injury without even realizing it, which, when undiagnosed, can have dangerous consequences. Second-impact syndrome (SIS) can result when a second concussion occurs while the brain is still healing from a prior concussion. The condition is rare but can be deadly. That’s why it’s so important to diagnose a head injury right away, begin treatment, and avoid the chance of another concussion.
A person’s life and well-being is put on the line when careless behavior causes a head injury. Contact Anapol Weiss today if it happened to you.
