A blow to the head, such as in a motor vehicle accident, can result in many types of injury.
A concussion is every bit as serious as it sounds, as this can have a big impact on your life immediately following the accident as well as for many years to come. This is why it's so important to receive immediate and professional medical treatment.
There is more than one type of concussion, with the three grades including:
- Grade 1: confusion that lasts no more than 15 minutes, with no loss of consciousness
- Grade 2: confusion that lasts for longer than 15 minutes, with no loss of consciousness
- Grade 3: loss of consciousness, regardless of the length of time
A grade 3 concussion is more serious than grade 1 or 2, but all three of these injuries can be extremely dangerous.
