Signs of traumatic brain injuries after car accidents

It does not take an extreme car accident to result in serious injuries to all parties involved. One of the most serious to pay attention to is a traumatic brain injury

Car accidents happen every day in Illinois, and if you ever find yourself in one, you need to see a doctor immediately. Traumatic brain injuries can quickly escalate. In the weeks and months following the collision, you should watch out for the following symptoms and bring them to the immediate attention of a medical professional. 

Mental and cognitive symptoms

You should be wary if you notice any drastic changes to your mood. It is natural to feel depressed or angry after a car accident, but weeks later, you may realize you are prone to constant mood swings. You may also notice concentration and memory problems. It can become a hassle to recall certain details you should know without hesitation. 

Sensory symptoms

You may notice problems with various senses after a car accident. This can include an increased sensitivity to sound and light. Additional symptoms can include:

  • Ringing in the ears, also known as tinnitus
  • Blurry vision
  • Changes in your capability to smell
  • A constant bad taste in the mouth

Physical symptoms

In the immediate aftermath of the car accident, you are most likely to notice some of the more physical symptoms of a concussion. After the crash, you may experience a loss of consciousness for a few minutes. If someone was in the car with you during the accident, he or she would hopefully tell you if you lost consciousness so you can seek medical assistance. Other symptoms that can greatly impact your life include chronic headaches, sleeping problems, constant fatigue and nausea. You need to monitor all these symptoms carefully. Inform your doctor if you notice any changes in your overall health. Be sure to abide by the doctor's healthcare plan precisely.
