I was in a North American Van Lines moving van crash in Texas. My doctor says I have a concussion, but is that considered a serious injury?

Yes. Although many people assume that a concussion is not a serious condition, it is medically classified as a mild traumatic brain injury. 

Traumatic brain injury victims in Texas can suffer a range of side effects, including: 

  • Headache
  • Fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Irritability
  • Light sensitivity
  • Memory problems
  • Problems concentrating
  • Difficulty paying attention
  • Decreased thinking speed
  • Trouble with balance or coordination
  • Nausea or inner-ear problems
  • Anxiety, paranoia, or depression
  • Sudden mood swings or behavioral changes

Many concussion victims will heal on their own within a year, and the symptoms of their brain injury will only be temporary. However, there have been cases where a concussion has progressed to serious brain injury and resulted in lifelong complications, so it is important for semi accident brain injury victims to see their doctors on a weekly basis to ensure they are healing properly.

Our North American Van Lines injury attorneys know that all head injuries should be taken very seriously. Even so-called “minor” brain injuries can still cause significant problems for the victims, including hospital stays, lost time from work and medical treatments as the brain attempts to repair the damage.
