A car accident or slip and fall can be a very traumatic and stressful experience. In some cases, you may not feel the effects of an accident until days or weeks later. Among the most serious injuries you can sustain from an accident is a concussion, also known as a mild traumatic brain injury.
Traumatic brain injuries can happen even if the head is not struck directly, and many brain injuries aren’t accompanied by obvious bruising, swelling, or bleeding on the scalp. A concussion or mild traumatic brain injury may not show up on a radiological scan of the brain, and are often diagnosed based on a patient’s reported symptoms, such as:
- Headaches and cognitive difficulty.
- Vision or hearing impairment
- Memory and concentration issues
- Balance or coordination problems
- Reflex and strength reduction
If you suspect that you have a concussion, see a doctor immediately.
