Concussions

Motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of concussions. Thurman D, The epidemiology and economics of head trauma. In: Miller L, Ayes R, editors. Head Trauma: Basic, Preclinical, and Clinical Directions. New York: John Wiley and Sons; 2001. pp. 327-47. The Mayo Clinic tells us that "[a] concussion is a traumatic brain injury that alters the way your brain functions. Effects are usually temporary, but can include problems with headache, concentration, memory, judgment, balance and coordination." It's generally agreed that a concussion is the most common, mildest, least severe form of brain injury. Beyond that, there is a lack of uniformity and consensus on concussions. Some Baltimore personal injury lawyers may be aware that there are, apparently, 16 different scales to measure the severity of concussions. Hayden MG, Jandial R, Duenas HA, Mahajan R, Levy M (2007). "Pediatric Concussions in Sports: A Simple and Rapid Assessment Tool for Concussive Injury in Children and Adults". Child's Nervous System 23 (4): 431–435. Seasoned Baltimore Personal Injury lawyers know The standard treatment for a concussion is "rest", and symptoms usually resolve within a matter of weeks. However, the CDC advises us that 15% of people sustaining concussions in acar accidents  will develop severe, permanent symptoms. [Heads Up: Facts for Physicians about Mild Traumatic Brain Injury, CDC]. The modern trend is to refer to a concussion as a MTBI [mild traumatic brain injury].
