What is a concussion injury compensation claim?

A concussion injury claim refers to seeking compensation for the damages and losses suffered as a result of a concussion injury caused by someone else. A concussion injury compensation claim refers to the financial reimbursement received in a successful claim for the injury and any short, medium or long term effects it may have on life and work.

What are the different types of concussion?

When a person is diagnosed with concussion, it is classified as grade 1 (mild), grade 2 (moderate) or grade 3 (severe). The level at which your concussion is graded depends on factors such as loss of consciousness, loss of memory and loss of balance. Grade 1 concussion is very short-lived, there is no loss of consciousness and symptoms last no longer than 30 minutes.

What are the symptoms of concussion?

Depending on the cause of the concussion and the severity of your injury, symptoms or signs of concussion can vary, sometimes they are apparent straight away, whereas in some situations they can take hours or even days to appear. Concussion symptoms of concussion can include, but are not limited to:

  • A brief loss of consciousness
  • Loss of memory and confusion
  • Feeling dizzy and weak
  • Fatigue
  • Feeling extra-sensitive to light and/or noise
  • Blurred vision or ‘seeing stars’
  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Feeling unbalanced

Concussion symptoms in children

It can sometimes be more difficult to assess signs of concussion in children or babies, as they are not always able to verbalise how they feel. Watch out for signs such as:

  • Crying more than usual
  • Changes to their sleeping or feeding habits
  • A loss of interest in things that usually interest them e.g. people or objects
