Minor Head Injury Can Lead to Prolonged Sleep Problems

In a recent study performed in an international sleep laboratory, reseachers discovered that concussions in adolescents, which were classified as minor head injuries, still resulted in sleep disturbances three years after their initial injury.  These disturbances could be confirmed by multiple specialized sleep study instruments.  Patients suffered from both lower sleep efficiency and more awake time. 

When a person suffers from a concussion-like head injury, whether it it's from a car crash, slip and fall, or another situation, they may write off their injury as minor or not significant.  Although this is sometimes the case, sometimes these injuries can develop into serious and major problems. If you have been injured and now suffer from a head injury that has resulted in lasting problems, please contact our law office for a consultation at no cost to you at the Law Offices of Attorney Doug Stoehr.
