What is post-concussional syndrome?
Post-concussional syndrome is a traumatic brain injury, often termed ‘mild’, that typically occurs following a blow to the head, or the violent shaking of a body. This injury commonly occurs during fights, falls, sporting activities, car accidents and falls and can severely affect your quality of life.
Although a symptom, suffering from concussion does not necessarily mean a loss of consciousness. If you have suffered from the following symptoms after a hit to the head, it could be you are suffering from concussion.
- Hearing problems
- Loss of memory
- Impairment of judgment
- Lack of concentration
- Loss of balance and coordination
- Behavioural changes
If you are experiencing short-term concussion, these symptoms are likely to last for a few days after the injury. However, if you have experienced these symptoms for a number of months or years after the incident, it is likely you are suffering from post-concussional syndrome.
Seeking legal help
Making a claim for post-concussional syndrome can be complex, as it is not well understood by medical professionals. This is because it is sometimes difficult to diagnose the condition based on the symptoms present and identifying the consequent brain injury. Because of this, it is crucial you seek the help of a specialist team of legal professionals in order to ensure you are tested, diagnosed and compensated accurately and fairly.
If your claim is successful, your compensation will be calculated based on:
- the extent of your injuries
- loss of earnings
- travel expenses incurred
- medical expenses incurred
