Is a concussion considered a brain injury? Let's ask Alaska attorney Mark Choate for this AskTheLawyers Quick Question.

Mark Choate:

It is considered a brain injury, and of course, the issue is always that a concussion can occur, but people will respond very differently to it. You can't necessarily predict how much force it takes for the brain to be injured. So we work with experts in the brain injury, they're called neurologist, there's neuroscientists, there are neuro-radiologists who deal with MRIs and functional MRIs, and there are neuropsychologists who actually do psychological testing to identify brain injury.
