Concussions and other types of blows to the head are always of concern. As discussed in this site’s Concussions and Traumatic Brain Injury pages, such injuries should be immediately assessed by a qualified medical professional. This is because – in short – in many cases the adverse health impact may take a while to become fully apparent.
As well, the issue of the long-term impact of concussions, while not fully understood, is being actively investigated as many believe that damage from repeated concussions can be very detrimental to various aspects of health.
One way in which concussions happen are during car and other vehicle accidents. A recent pedestrian accident in Chicago’s Wicker Park neighborhood resulted in two of the three pedestrians struck by a car having concussions among their accident injuries. This accident is summarized in the December 12, 2015 post titled “Wicker Park Pedestrian Accident.”
Another car accident in which a head injury occurred is seen in a December 9, 2015 car crash in Ringwood, Illinois. That accident is summarized in the December 9 post titled “Single-Car Crash In Ringwood.”
