A concussion is typically caused by a blow to the head or by the forceful shaking of the head. As such, concussions are often the result of car accidents, slip and falls, and sporting accidents. Although concussions are associated with a host of symptoms, these symptoms can be delayed and slow to present, which can leave the sufferer unaware of his or her injury until it’s had time to develop into something more serious and more difficult to treat. If someone else’s negligence leaves you with a concussion, consult with an experienced Joliet personal injury attorney today.
Concussions can affect children and adults differently. Because children cannot communicate how they are feeling as effectively (if at all), it is important to be on the lookout for telltale signs of a child’s concussion, including:
Adults can have some of the same physical symptoms as children do, but they can also exhibit a variety of additional symptoms, including:
While a concussion can elicit a wide variety of symptoms, it’s important to recognize that these symptoms can be slow to surface.
If you or your child has been in an accident involving significant impact, such as a car accident or a slip and fall accident, it is in your best interest to seek immediate medical attention. In fact, early diagnosis is closely associated with improved prognosis, so even if you think you are fine, do yourself a favor and get checked out by a medical professional.
If you have been involved in an accident, it can be hard to separate the shock of the accident from your physical sensations. In other words, when you are reeling from being in an accident in the first place, you may not be fully aware of any symptoms of a concussion that you’re experiencing. If you’ve been in an accident, seek medical care.

Great attorney sure did a fantastic job on my divorce HIGHLY RECOMMEND
As it was a long road, the outcome was what it should have been. 50/50 should be the starting point of a divorce when kids are involved, not something parents should have to fight for. Thanks Sandy & Roy for everything!
There is not enough space to accurately give justice to the gratefulness I have for Mr. Sabuco and his staff. So let me just say – I am grateful for the small things, big things and everything in between.
