Concussions In Auto Accidents Demand Medical Attention

Your Injury Could Be Severe And Could Warrant Personal Injury Compensation

Head injuries are some of the most common types of injuries in motor vehicle accidents. For years, people would suffer concussions in auto accidents and do little to nothing about them. Doctors would even just prescribe a standard method of care and monitoring while not probing further for serious brain injuries.

Now we know that serious brain injuries may develop after a concussion from a car accident. A concussion could turn into a mild traumatic brain injury (mild TBI) and be the cause of life-altering symptoms and side effects.

Just one concussion makes a victim more susceptible to additional concussions. The severity of symptoms become worse from each successive concussion along with the very real possibilities of depression, dementia and post-concussion syndrome (continuing nausea, headaches and moodiness for weeks).

Concussion Symptoms

  • Nausea
  • Short-term memory loss
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Lack of focus
  • Sleeplessness
  • Moodiness, irritability and anxiety
  • Depression

If you have suffered a head injury, you should seek immediate medical attention. You may have deeper wounds than you suspect, and they could cause long-term health concerns that affect your ability to complete tasks and support your family.

Your brain takes much longer to heal than most parts of your body. If you have concussion symptoms, tell your doctor right away and follow prescribed treatment and cautions to the T.
