Car accidents can cause serious head injuries that you can’t see. Your first thought after a car accident is “am I alright?” You look yourself over, make sure you can move everything and feel for broken bones. Then you relax and think you’re okay.
But you might not be okay once the adrenaline wears off. You may have suffered a concussion or brain injury if your head hit something in the accident. We see lots of clients in t-bone and side collision accidents who have hit their heads on the side windows suffer concussion symptoms. If you lost consciousness in your car accident you should definitely be concerned about a concussion.
Car Accident Concussion Symptoms
Concussion symptoms do not always appear immediately right after the accident. Sometimes they show up days later. The most common signs of concussion are:
- Memory Loss or Forgetfulness
- Difficulty Thinking Clearly
- Ringing Ears
- Nausea or Vomiting
- Slurred Speech
If you think you have a concussion or head trauma, you must see a doctor, preferably a neurologist.
