Our brain injury lawyers at the law firm of Goodman Acker P.C. frequently
represent clients who have suffered a
brain injury or closed head injury as a result of a Michigan accident. The most common type of closed head
injury is a concussion. It is often the result of a
car accident or a sports-related accident.
A concussion can cause a temporary loss of consciousness or a longer loss
of consciousness as in a coma. With this type of injury you may suffer
physical, psychological and/or cognitive impairment. However, when an
individual suffers from a head injury the symptoms are not always recognizable.
It is important that parents and others are aware of all the symptoms
of a concussion as immediate treatment can make a difference.
As a resource to our clients, the law firm of Goodman Acker P.C. would
like to share a new app they came across called The Heads Up app. The
App was developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
The Heads Up app is free and is available for download on the App Store
and Google Play.
The app was developed to help parents and others learn how to spot the
signs and symptoms of a concussion, and what to do if they think their
child or teen has a concussion or other serious brain injury. In addition,
the app also includes information on selecting the right helmet for an
activity and other detailed safety tips for prevention of head injuries.
