If you're diagnosed with a concussion, such as the result of a slip-and-fall accident, you'll want to work with your medical team to implement a treatment plan designed to help you make a full recovery.

Here are some of the many things your doctor will suggest in regards to treatment:

  • Rest, rest and more rest: A concussion is a brain injury, so you must give it time to rest and recover. This means cutting back on the amount of physical and mental exertion you take on during your day.
  • No physical activity: The last thing you want to do is strike your head before you've fully recovered from a concussion. Your doctor will suggest that you don't partake in any physical activity, either for leisure or work.
  • Limited mental concentration: For example, if you work or go to school, shortened days may be necessary. Also, you don't want to spend too much time focused on reading, watching television or using a computer.

As you recover, you will visit with your doctor to ensure that everything is going as planned. Should you run into any setbacks, such as symptoms that reappear, it's important to receive immediate medical attention.

A concussion may not be the most advanced or serious traumatic brain injury, but it's one that can impact your life nonetheless. On the plus side, the right treatment plan can help you make a full recovery.

Once you're sure of your injuries and prognosis, you can then file an insurance claim and decide if there are other ways to obtain compensation from the person or party responsible for your accident.
