If you’ve been involved in a Seattle bicycle crash, you may be suffering from a concussion if you have any of these symptoms.

What are the symptoms of a concussion after a Seattle bicycle crash?

 

A:

You were riding on your bike around Puget Sound taking in the sights and enjoying yourself. The next thing you know, you are on the ground because another biker crashed into you. You were wearing a helmet, but you remember your head hitting the ground.

Could you have a concussion? Our Seattle bicycle crash experience reminds us that the following symptoms frequently result from a minor bruising of the brain:

  • Ringing in the ears
  • Nausea
  • Headache or a feeling of pressure in the head
  • Fatigue
  • Slurred speech
  • Confusion or feeling in a fog
  • Dizziness or “seeing stars”
  • Slurred speech
  • Appearing dazed
  • Temporary loss of consciousness
  • Amnesia surrounding the traumatic event
  • Delayed response to questions

Some concussion symptoms can take a few hours or days to present themselves, including:

  • Disorders of taste and smell
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Sensitivity to light and sound
  • Irritability and other personality changes
  • Psychological adjustment problems and depression
  • Concentration and memory complaints

Even if you feel fine after you’ve been involved in a Seattle bicycle crash, you should still receive an examination from a doctor. Not only does doing so catch any problems you may have, but it also gets a medical record started that will likely prove extremely helpful if you should go to court.

If you were the victim of an accident, you’ll need the help of an experienced attorney. The Andrew Kim Law Firm has helped many victims of crashes receive the compensation they deserve. We may be able to do the same for you.

We encourage you to share this information with the bicyclists among your friends and family.
