What is a Concussion?
A concussion is another term for a type of traumatic brain injury. Concussions can range from mild to severe, with symptoms that include headaches, dizziness, loss of consciousness, memory loss, nausea, vomiting, mood swings, personality changes, confusion, and clumsiness.
Concussions can affect your sensory perceptions such as sight, taste, hearing, and smell. These issues can be temporary and go away after a few days, last for weeks or months, and in some cases remain a permanent side effect of your injury.

Factors That Affect Concussion Settlements
There are a couple of factors that affect the amount of a concussion settlement. The first is the severity of the injury and extent of medical treatment needed for recovery. More serious concussions require more medical treatment, and your settlement will cover all of your medical expenses related to the accident.
Another factor in the settlement is whether the concussion caused any permanent damage and how that might affect your employment in addition to your day to day life. Concussion settlement amounts take into account future income, benefits, and the pain and suffering caused by a concussion injury.
