Concussions and brain injuries can happen due to a range of factors, and the short- and long-term impacts of such injuries can range in both severity and duration. On this site, concussions, as well as traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are discussed on the “Concussions” and “Traumatic Brain Injury” pages.
A recent bicycle accident experienced by a Bridgeport resident, Charles Uth, highlights some of aspects of concussions and their health impact.
An excerpt from a May 29, 2015 dnainfo.com article titled “Bicyclist Trying To Solve Mystery Of Crash After Waking Up In The Hospital,” which discusses the bicycle accident and the injuries sustained by Uth:
Uth’s wife, Alexandra, got a call from a staffer at Mercy Hospital just after 9 a.m. that morning. The news shocked her: Her husband of eight years had suffered a serious head injury.The right side of his body sported a large bruise from his shoulder down to his rib cage. He had some bleeding on his brain, a common symptom of concussions.
