Many people refer to a blow to the head as "having their bell rung." What many people do not know is that getting their bell rung is more than just a minor inconvenience — it can result in a concussion and many problems down the line.
You do not have to be knocked out to sustain a concussion. A seemingly minor blow to the head can result in a concussion.

Chronic headaches can be debilitating and can prevent you from performing your work duties. Obtaining medical treatment for your headache can play a crucial role in ensuring that you receive full compensation benefits.
Concussion is the mildest type of traumatic brain injury. While symptoms of a concussion can vary from person to person, they can include:
- Chronic headache
- Visual impairment
- Ringing in the ears
- Neurological deficits
- Cognitive deficits
Neurological and cognitive deficits, including memory problems, can be particularly frustrating for our injured clients. Tasks that were once routine may become difficult to perform. This can severely affect not just job performance but the ability to perform a job at all.
Closed head injuries resulting in concussion can happen during falls, while getting hit on the head with machinery or equipment, while walking into a poorly marked structure, when an object falls and in many other types of scenarios. While concussions certainly happen to people with manual labor jobs, workers in all industries and occupations are at risk.
