Post-Concussion Syndrome Car Accident Injuries in Georgia


June 14, 2021

Concussions are some of the typical injuries that can occur during a car accident in the state of Georgia. The majority of car accident victims who experience concussions will find relief and move on to recovery in a few weeks. But some victims experience post-concussion syndrome, which can be more serious.

Post-concussion syndrome is a condition in which some or all of the symptoms associated with a concussion continue or become worse for a long period of time after the initial injury. Some people who have been involved in a Georgia vehicle accident and have suffered a concussion develop this syndrome and do not see relief for months or sometimes years after the car crash. 

It can be difficult to receive a diagnosis of post-concussion syndrome because the symptoms can be vague and can mimic other common ailments. Some symptoms to watch out for in particular include:

  • Dizziness or lightheadedness
  • Chronic headaches
  • Irritability or changes in mood
  • Insomnia and fatigue
  • Depression or anxiety
  • Sensitivity to sounds or light

If you are experiencing several of these symptoms at the same time, you could be suffering from post-concussion syndrome. Remember, a concussion is a type of brain injury, and it should always be taken seriously. Especially if your concussion symptoms are not better within three weeks, you need to go back to your doctor.

Post-concussion syndrome is a common type of injury that can be sustained in a car accident. If you have suffered a concussion because of someone else's negligence, you can be entitled to medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering and more.  Contact Montlick & Associates at 1-800-LAW-NEED to learn about your legal rights as well as what steps can be taken to protect those rights.
