Symptoms of a severe traumatic brain injury

It's never something you want to think about, but there could come a time when you are injured in a motor vehicle accident.

There are many things you can do to avoid trouble on the road. There are just as many things you can do inside your vehicle to prevent serious injury in the event of a crash.

Unfortunately, no matter how much time and energy you put into protecting yourself, you could still suffer an injury that changes your life forever. A serious traumatic brain injury definitely belongs on this list.

Any blow to the head, which is common in the event of a car accident, can cause a severe traumatic brain injury.

Some of the many symptoms of this injury include:

  • Loss of consciousness
  • Seizures or convulsions
  • Persistent headache or one that worsens with time
  • Inability to wake up
  • Loss of coordination
  • Numbness or weakness in the toes or fingers
  • Confusion
  • Slurred speech
  • Agitation or any form of unusual behavior

There are times when a blow to the head leads to the immediate onset of one or more of these symptoms. There are also times when symptoms don't present right away, but begin to set in over time. This is what makes it so challenging to deal with a traumatic brain injury in the appropriate manner.

Even if you have no visible signs of an injury, it's imperative that you receive medical attention after a motor vehicle accident.

A traumatic brain injury that goes untreated is one that can lead to additional injuries, or in the worst cases, death.

Once your health is in order, you'll want to learn more about the cause of the accident. If another driver was negligent, you may have several options for seeking compensation for your injuries and any other damages.
