Common concussion symptoms
Whether you suffered a concussion from dooring or being hit by a distracted driver, it is important to know the warning signs.
Some of the most common symptoms of a concussion include:
- Headaches or migraines
- Nausea or vomiting
- Memory problems
- Problems with balance and coordination
- Confusion or difficulty concentrating
- Sensitivity to light or noise
Concussion symptoms can be immediate or develop over time, making it critical to seek medical attention right away. In some cases, symptoms can linger for far too long, a condition called post-concussion syndrome. There is also the risk of a life-threatening complication called second impact syndrome if you sustain another concussion before the first has healed.
So, don’t take chances with your health. See a doctor right away. Then, talk to a motorcycle accident lawyer at our law firm.
How an attorney can help you
Building a strong legal case can be a challenge for motorcycle accident victims. That's because there's a bias against many motorcyclists. Some people think all motorcyclists are risk-takers and that you must have done something to cause your crash. This can be especially frustrating if someone from the insurance company for the driver who caused your crash tries to blame you for causing your collision.
