Car Accident Head Injuries

Accident5

Literally any kind of injury can – and does – happen in a car accident. But unfortunately, injuries to the head are not always immediately apparent despite being one of the most common types of injuries resulting from car accidents. Obvious physical symptoms clueing the victim in to the fact that there is likely a problem may not appear for days or even weeks after the accident occurred. This is especially concerning when it comes to head injuries due to the potential seriousness of these injuries. Therefore, if you or a loved one has been involved in an accident, it is important that you have some understanding of all the factors involved regarding head injuries.

Understanding the Risks

Unfortunately, there is good reason why head injuries cause so much concern. Among the most serious of the resulting head injuries are traumatic brain injuries (TBI), which is a leading cause of death and disability among children and young adults in the United States according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Defined as a bump, blow, or jolt to the head that disrupts the normal function of the brain, this condition was responsible for almost three million emergency room visits in 2014 alone. Other head conditions can include everything from concussions to contusions. Signs of head injuries following an accident can include:

  • Headaches
  • Confusion
  • Convulsions
  • Vomiting
  • Lightheadedness
  • Dizziness
  • Blurred vision
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Strange eye movements
  • Memory loss

Always Seek Medical Help

If you believe you have suffered a head injury, it is important to seek medical treatment as soon as possible. However, it is also important to understand that it is always a good idea to visit a medical professional following a car accident even if you think you feel perfectly fine. Given all the stress from the accident, it is understandable if your first instinct is to downplay the severity of your injuries or even if you do not recognize them at first due to the adrenaline rush. This is where the help of a doctor, who is an unrelated and neutral party, can come in handy. In addition to being able to examine any potential health problems you suspect you have, he or she can also uncover problems you weren’t even aware of before they become more serious and damaging.

Turn to a Team That Has Your Best Interest in Mind
