Proper treatment of a concussion is a must

If you suspect a concussion, such as the result of a motor vehicle accident or slip and fall, you shouldn't wait to receive medical treatment. Only a qualified doctor can run the tests necessary to determine if you have a concussion and/or another type of brain injury.

Should you learn that you have a concussion, your doctor will provide a treatment plan for helping you to make a full recovery. It's critical to follow every detail of your recovery plan, as neglecting to do so can result in the worsening of symptoms.

Here are some things to keep in mind:

  • Mental and physical rest is a must: In the days immediately following your concussion, rest is important to starting the recovery process on the right foot. For example, you'll want to limit any activity that requires mental concentration or physical exertion.
  • Pain medication is available: If you have a severe headache, for instance, talk to your doctor about the type of medication that is safe for you to take.
  • You'll slowly return to normal activity: You don't wake up one day and decide that it's time to jump back into your former life. A little bit at a time, you'll slowly return to routine activity. If you bite off too much too soon, it can lead to your symptoms returning.

A concussion is a serious brain injury that will alter your life and cost you money. If you suffered this injury due to another person's negligence, consider the steps you can take to protect your legal rights.
