Car Accident Brain Injury Information

Car Accidents Are a Major Cause of Brain Injuries

A severe injury in the aftermath of a car accident remains a traumatic experience. Many a time motorists won’t know how to react to such a crash. Also, they are filled with pain suppressing adrenaline.

For this reason the feeling immediate pain might be blocked. Because of this, they can return home without proper medical treatment. In other cases, they may go to the emergency room for broken bones or other issues. But some doctors fail to adequately check for damage to the head and brain.

The longer the delay in diagnosing the harder to prove causation. Also, the delay can make the brain injury permanent. So traumatic brain injuries, or TBIs, could severely impact the rest of the victim’s life.

Types of Injuries and Effects From Car Accidents.

Many potential injuries get faced by drivers, bystanders, and passengers, during accidents. These can include concussions, brain hemorrhages, or closed brain injuries. Closed head injuries result from head trauma.

In fact, they happen within the skull and the interior lining. So the dura mater is injured although intact within the skull.

But this can lead to a pooling of blood around the brain, or hematoma, increased pressure on the brain. At this point, bruising to brain tissue or even permanent damage to the brain can happen. Most of all, this is due to the failure of the Central Nervous System– the brain and spinal cord– to regenerate dead or damaged cells.

All of these injuries could be life threatening or cause other severe issues. In other words, you must understand the basic symptoms and be on the look out post car accident.

Several indications exist for closed head injuries, including:

  • Headache.
  • Dizziness.
  • Nausea.
  • Lack of Problem Solving Ability.
  • Being Aggressive.
  • Sluggishness.
  • Slurred speech.
  • Vomiting.

More severe symptoms could indicate dramatic closed head injuries. So these include a loss of consciousness, seizures, or coma.
