At Roswold Law Group, we know protecting your child is your number one priority. Which is why we are dedicated to bringing you helpful information to make sure you're able to do that to the best of your ability. Today, we'd like to give you some information about detecting concussions following a severe head injury.
With school back in session and fall upon us, a lot of boys and girls are getting into new sports such as football and soccer. While a kid can receive a head injury playing on the monkey bars or doing just about anything else, the physical contact that generally comes with both football and soccer, present a greater chance of your child sustaining a severe head injury.
Early detection of a concussion is the best way to prevent long term damage and even death in severe cases.
- confusion, problems with routine tasks
