CONCUSSION-WHIPLASH OF THE BRAIN-MINNESOTA INJURY LAWYERS

CONCUSSION-WHIPLASH OF THE BRAIN.

Everyone knows that car accidents can cause whiplash injuries.  Rear end collisions are the worst.  When a person is in a car that is struck from the rear, the head “whips” back and then rebounds forward.  That movement is called an “acceleration/deceleration” force.  That force can “whip” the neck, moving it beyond its natural ability to withstand without injury. The injury is to the muscles, ligaments and intervertebral discs.  It can result in long-term, permanent injury.  Whiplash injuries to the neck can produce severe headaches called cervicogenic headaches.

CONCUSSION-WHIPLASH OF THE BRAIN.

The brain can be injured by whiplash, just like the neck.  The spinal cord in the neck is connected to the brain at the “brain stem”.  The brain is suffer whiplash injuries that are even more serious than the whiplash injuries to the neck.  The result is a “concussion” injury.

A concussion is, by definition, a mild traumatic brain injury.  However, often the long-term results are not mild.  Instead, they can result in major permanent disability and long-term bad health results.

CONCUSSION INJURIES OFTEN OVERLOOKED.

Many concussion injuries are overlooked and not reported.  Some concussion victims never seek medical attention.  Many seek medical attention but the concussion injuries are overlooked because they are overshadowed by a physical injury, physical pain and the symptoms of shock that make assessment and diagnosis very difficult.  Respected experts estimate that more than one million concussion injuries are unreported every year.
