I have never had anything bad enough to knock me unconcious... but regardless, you should always be checked out.
A friend once tripped on his shoe lace, and hit his head(didn't lose concisnous(sp)) and he figured he was fine. 2 days later he passed out while driving his tractor, and his wife called 911. When he got to the hospital, they said he had extensive brain damage, and a concusion(kinda one in the same) and they gave him a 2% chance of surviving after he had a piece of skull taken out to ellivate pressure, and fix other stuff, and they said IF he survived he had less than 1% of a chance to ever regain any of his memories, and to accumilate new ones.
Luckily he survived, and amazingly has no memory problems 4 years after the incident. Even though he survived those odds, I doubt many others who can. No matter how minimal the incident, if it involves your head(or chest) always have it checked out immediatly.
Sorry to ramble like that, I just never want that to happen to someone again. =/
