Have you experienced a headache or nausea after an accident? You may have suffered a concussion. A concussion is a form of traumatic brain injury. You might feel fine at first, then begin experiencing symptoms after the adrenaline you got from the accident wears off. You might dismiss a headache following an accident as related to tension, but it could be more serious than that.
Concussions are common in car accidents. A concussion can last anywhere from days to months and requires immediate medical treatment. Get help immediately. You may be entitled to compensation if you have a head injury.
Some common symptoms suffered during a car accident:
- Confusion, amnesia
- Headache, nausea, vomiting
- Dizziness, ringing ears, slurred speech
- Fatigue, sleepiness
- Loss of consciousness for a few minutes
Concussion symptoms can evolve in the days following an injury. More severe injuries may cause symptoms to continue for days or months. Your doctor will tell you to look for these warning signs:
- Memory problems or difficulty concentrating
- Mood swings, irritability
- Difficulty sleeping
- Depression, anxiety
- Sensitivity to light, sound; difficulty smelling and tasting
