Car Accident Concussions – Signs to Look for

Car Accident ConcussionsCar accidents are a leading cause of injury. And, unfortunately, some of the worst injuries are not immediately apparent. It is relatively easy to spot a broken bone or a cut that needs stitches. But neurological issues like car accident concussions are a lot harder to spot. They are also alarmingly common. According to the Brain Injury Society, there are a reported 280,000 concussions caused annually as a result of car crashes. If you or someone you love has recently been involved in a collision, look for these signs of car accident concussions:

  • Loss of consciousness
  • Feelings of confusion or disorientation
  • Nausea, vomiting, or headache
  • Feelings of fatigue or drowsiness
  • A sudden change in sleep patterns
  • Trouble balancing or dizziness
  • Pupils that will not fully dilate
  • Blurred vision or a ringing in the ears
  • Sensitivity to light or noise
  • Trouble with memory or concentration
  • Unexplained changes in mood
  • Uncharacteristic feelings of depression or anxiety

Just one of these symptoms can be a sign of car accident concussions. And the symptoms may not manifest themselves immediately after the accident. If you have been involved in a collision it is always a good idea to get checked out by a doctor. But if you are experiencing the symptoms of car crash concussions you need to seek out medical attention immediately.

If you are positively diagnosed with a concussion after a car accident that was caused by someone else, consider pursuing a settlement. After a car accident concussion treatment can lead to expensive medical bills. And even a relatively minor concussion can lead to major neurological problems. You have the right to hold the offending driver responsible and pursue a financial settlement.

After you have been seen by a doctor, talk to a lawyer even if your car crash concussion symptoms have disappeared. You won’t know if you have a viable suit until you seek out the guidance of legal professionals.
