Concussions after a car accident are unfortunately common. However, it may be difficult to determine if you have one until days later. It is hard to tell if you have a mild or severe concussion with all the adrenaline rushing through you after an accident. So what are some symptoms to look out for?
Mayo Clinic defines concussions as “a traumatic brain injury that affects your brain function. Effects are usually temporary but can include headaches and problems with concentration, memory, balance, and coordination.” Concussions can be caused by sudden and violent jolts to the head or neck, causing the brain to move in ways it normally would not.
Symptoms of a concussion are headaches, amnesia, and confusion. Additionally, there may be ringing in the ears, vomiting, and fatigue, and more. See a doctor if you have the slightest feeling that you may have a concussion. If you have one and fail to treat it properly, it may result in long-term effects.
