Understanding the severity of a concussion

When Illinois residents incur a concussion, they may initially think that this injury is not serious. However, any wound to the brain can be severe, and it is important for people to recognize the signs of this injury and understand when they should seek medical attention.

Concussions can have differing levels of severity. According to WebMD, there are three different grades of concussions. Someone may become unconscious if he or she incurs a grade 3 concussion. This loss of consciousness may last for a few seconds or several minutes. If a person has symptoms of a concussion for more than 15 minutes but does not lose consciousness, then he or she may have sustained a grade 2 wound. People who incur a grade 1 concussion usually remain conscious and experience symptoms for only a few minutes.

While a concussion may not threaten a person's life, it can have far-reaching effects on his or her health. Brainline.com says that people may have problems retaining information or concentrating on their work. Others may find that they are nervous or irritable. Additionally, people may develop balance problems or headaches. All of these can be indications of a concussion. Sometimes symptoms may not appear till days or even months have passed, making it difficult for people to realize that these symptoms are connected to their head wound. While some symptoms may be present for only a few days, other may linger for several months.

After a person sustains a concussion, it is important for him or her to see a doctor. A doctor can typically assess how severe the concussion might be and help people understand what they can do to help their brain heal.

  2. "Could not have made a better choice"

    We found Mark [Mathys] through the web after an auto accident in October 2011. While selecting someone you don't know to represent you can be a gamble, we could not have made a better choice....
    - Dave

  3. "Very satisfied"

    Mark [Mathys] is very professional. He responds almost immediately, via email, to any question, comment or concern I have and if he is not able to respond right away, he will let me know. I have been very satisfied with Mark so far and I am happy to be his client.
    -Jennifer

  4. "Easy to talk to"

    Mr. Mathys and Mr. Schneid were very professional and easy to talk to. Prior to working with them, my wife and I had no real experience with the legal system beyond a house closing, yet Mr. Mathys and Mr. Schneid explained the whole process to us very well. I knew that whenever I had a concern about our case or the legal system in general I could call their office or send an email and receive answers the same day... -Larry

  5. "Provided very wise advice"

    I've dealt with attorneys on a variety of issues, almost all of them since leaving college and entering the workplace. Mr. Mathys was the first attorney I had any real experience with, and I was impressed then and remain so. He provided very wise advice and always kept me informed. In the end, he delivered a favorable result. I recommend him highly.
    - Tyler D.

  6. "In-depth knowledge of the law"

    Mark [Schneid] is an excellent and skilled attorney and demonstrated in-depth knowledge of the law when he helped settle my dog bite lawsuit resulting from a traumatic incident. He explained what was needed of me and how I should handle the situation in a professional manner.
    - Karen K.

  7. "They went to bat for me"

    Not long ago I was involved in a car accident where I was hit by a gravel truck at an intersection. After I called Mathys & Schneid, even though I didn't have a very large case, they made me feel like I was one of their most important cases. They went to bat for me with the trucking company's insurance and got me a settlement. I would definitely recommend them to my family and friends. -Dan H.
