What symptoms have you suffered from a brain injury?

Suffering from a brain injury is common after a serious car accident. The gravitational forces involved in a collision can throw the human body -- and your head -- around the inside your vehicle in a violent way. Even if your head doesn't impact any part of the vehicle, the jerking movements of a crash can incite a brain injury.

The problem is that brain injuries are not always easy for doctors to detect -- especially if there are no outward signs of bruising or contusion and the injury is a purely internal one. Doctors might ask you a few questions following your collision and determine you're fine, but a few days later, the unusual symptoms of your brain injury surface.

Brain injury symptoms might include:

  • Numbness
  • Slurred speech
  • Severe headache
  • Vomiting and nausea
  • Excessive drowsiness
  • Dizziness or vision loss
  • Weakness in the legs and arms
  • Loss of consciousness and the feeling of confusion

If you were in a car crash and you felt the above symptoms following the incident, it's important to contact a doctor immediately to investigate what could be wrong. A brain injury is a serious condition that should be treated as quickly as possible in order for the treatments to be effective. In many cases, advanced treatments can help stop the worsening of a brain injury and promote a speedier recovery.

In severe brain injury cases, victims may require costly therapies. They may also suffer from permanent disabilities after their accident. In cases where a victim's injuries were caused by another person's negligence in an auto collision, the victim may have a viable case to pursue financial compensation in civil court.
