In recent years, research has uncovered alarming new facts about concussions – all pointing to the fact that they’re more dangerous than we’ve known. Changes in habits and personality, permanent and sometimes deadly, can stem from a single blow to the head. Over time, the victim of a concussion can lose the motor skills they rely on to get them through everyday life. As memories leave them, they can emerge as shadows of their former selves. If someone else is responsible for you or a loved one’s concussion, they deserve to be held to account for endangering the organ that comprises someone’s very personhood.
