Did a motor vehicle accident cause your concussion?

You can suffer many injuries in a motor vehicle accident, with a concussion among the most common. This type of traumatic brain injury affects brain function, leading to a variety of symptoms.

Some of the most common signs and symptoms of a concussion include:

  • Dizziness
  • Headache
  • Confusion
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Delayed response to questions
  • Fatigue
  • Slurred speech

Even if you don't experience these symptoms immediately after an accident, they could become a problem in the near future. It's not uncommon for concussion symptoms to present several hours after an accident.

Since it's better to be cautious, seek medical attention following any motor vehicle accident in which you hit your head.

Your doctor will examine you, while also running various imaging tests. This will give them a clear idea of if you have a concussion or another injury.

The best way to treat a concussion is with rest. This gives your brain time to heal, and hopefully, make a full recovery.

If your concussion symptoms worsen or fail to go away, your doctor will run additional tests to rule out other, more serious conditions, such as a skull fracture or bleeding on the brain.

As time allows, file a car insurance claim and learn more about other strategies for seeking compensation from the negligent party. This isn't always easy to do while recovering from a concussion, so you may want to seek the assistance of a loved one.

A concussion is a serious injury that will impact your health and life in many ways. Holding the negligent party responsible won't treat your injury, but it can help you financially during this difficult time.
