There are no clearly accepted definitions of concussion but it is generally referred to as a jilt or blow to the head that can disrupt brain function. This may also be referred to as a mild traumatic brain injury.
Car crashes are some of the most common causes of concussions in San Diego. If you believe that you may have become a victim of a concussion you need to consult with a medical professional as soon as possible.
Many individuals who have suffered a concussion may have dizziness or a headache for a day or two and then recover fully but some individuals up to 5% can develop blood clot or bleeding that can be life threatening if it has not been properly diagnosed and treated by a physician. Brain injuries are extremely common, but they can also be extremely complicated.
There is no single measure that can be used to determine if someone has had a true concussion and whether or not it presents a serious amount of danger. This is why it is imperative to get medical attention sooner rather than later.
If you are experiencing seizures, vomiting, headache, feeling confused or dizzy, loss of consciousness or any period of amnesia, you need to consult with a medical professional sooner rather than later. This is absolutely one case where it is better to be safe than sorry.
