A: Symptoms can vary widely in a concussion injury. A concussion can result in a traumatic brain injury, which can have lasting effects. There may be a severe and permanent loss of function. Symptoms may occur such as memory loss, speech impairment, coma, and some behavioral issues.
Q: What Are the Long Term Effects of a TBI?
A: A person who has suffered from a traumatic brain injury may have costly ongoing medical needs. It may be that they may not be able to care for themselves on a daily basis, and may have a need for daily care in the home, as well as extensive rehabilitation services.

Q: Do I Really Need Medical Care For “Just a Bump on the Head ” ?
A: Yes, any head trauma injury should be seen by qualified medical care. Many simple everyday occurrences can result in a tripping and falling off a curb can lead to a concussion injury. Anything from a car accident to a sports injury may involve a quick hitting motion, causing the head to snap back, and result in a mild to severe concussion to the brain. Always seek treatment if you have been injured in this way.
Q: How Does a Concussion Injury Get Diagnosed?
A: You may receive an examination by a Dr. to first determine if there is anything that can be determined just by physical exam. You may also undergo a CAT Scan or MRI. Often, a traumatic brain injury is difficult to diagnose. Many times the victim may not feel anything is wrong, or have any symptoms. They may act and feel normal initially. Family members or coworkers may notice some abnormal behavior such as extreme fatigue, irritation, or some confusion and disorientation. This is as a result of swelling of the brain, and doesn’t always present itself right away. This is one reason why emergency medical care is necessary after the initial accident.
Q: What Happens After the TBI Diagnoses?
