Concussion Injury Lawsuits
A concussion is a type of head injury that is commonly caused by a traumatic blow to the head and is often referred to as a traumatic brain injury (TB).
As one of the most common types of head injuries, concussions are caused when the brain is shaken inside the skull, where injuries can range from a "mind" concussion where the victim experiences a brief change in consciousness, up to a "severe" injury where the victim remains unconscious for an extended period of time.
It's important to note that many concussion injuries occur in auto accidents due to the violent nature of those types of collisions. In fact, in South Carolina a person is injured in a traffic accident approximately every 10 minutes.
If you or a loved one has suffered a concussion in a car accident that was caused by another driver, the victim may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, and more.

Signs and Symptoms of a Concussion
Most individuals recognize a concussion when a victim losses consciousness, however, not all victims will lose consciousness or have visible signs of a brain injury. Signs and symptoms of a concussion can last for hours, days, and even weeks.
Some common signs and symptoms of a concussion include:
- Ringing in the ears
- Slurred speech
If a concussion is delayed certain symptoms may show up hours or days after the injury, some common symptoms of a delayed concussion include:
- Concentration and memory problems
- Sensitivity to light
- Difficulty sleeping
- Disorders of taste and smell
Concussions in children and infants can be much more difficult to recognize. If your child was involved in a car accident, the following symptoms of a concussion should be watched for:
- Tiring easily
- Irritability and crankiness
- Lack of interest in toys
- Loss of balance
- Changing in eating or sleeping patterns
There is no simple treatment for a concussion beyond rest and doctor recommended pain relievers. Additionally, victims of a concussion also typically must refrain from vigorous activities; bed rest is often recommended.
