Warning signs of a brain injury

Car accidents are scary, traumatic and often leave the individuals involved with severe injury. At times, this can include a brain injury. If your head slams into your steering wheel or window with great force during an accident, you may have endured serious trauma to the brain.

According to the CDC, traumatic brain injuries contribute to 30 percent of all injury deaths. That being said, how do you know if you, or someone you love, has been affected by a brain injury?

Signs you may have a brain injury

It can be hard to isolate the cause of brain injury symptoms, as they can be symptoms of other illnesses, or just everyday experiences. For example, you may not likely attribute a headache to a brain injury. However, if you or a loved one are experiencing one or more of these symptoms, you may want to head to the doctor.

  • Nausea/ vomiting
  • Blurred vision/ dilated eyes
  • Trouble with memory
  • Sense of fogginess
  • Headaches or migraines often/ persistent
  • Loss of consciousness/ inability to wake
  • Seizures

A blow to the head during a car accident can have serious consequences on the brain. Recovery can be a long and painful process, as the symptoms can linger, which is why it is important to seek medical aid directly after the accident occurs. Many individuals who suffer from a brain injury need long term care in order to recover.

If negligence and/or liability can be attributed to the other driver, you may be able to obtain compensation for the damage(s).
