If you are involved in an accident, it's important to understand that your health is priority number one.
For example, a car accident often results in a blow to the head. The same holds true in a slip and fall, such as on a set of stairs.
Even if you feel okay after the accident, there is no point of risking your health. Instead, you should be immediately examined by a qualified medical professional.
Believe it or not, the symptoms of a concussion do not always reveal themselves immediately. Instead, they can remain dormant for a period of several days or longer.
There are several types of concussion, all of which are extremely dangerous:
-- Grade 1 concussion: While there is no loss of consciousness, this type of concussion typically results in confusion for a period of less than 15 minutes.
-- Grade 2 concussion: Again, there is no loss of consciousness, but confusion lasts longer than 15 minutes.
-- Grade 3 concussion: If consciousness is lost for any period of time, the concussion is considered to be grade 3.
A concussion can change your life in many ways, both when it occurs as well as in the future.
