Car accidents are becoming more and more common in today’s world. When one is to think of a car accident, normally one of the first thoughts is the initial injury that comes with the accident, though there can be much more than that. People often tend to disregard the injuries that can come after the car accident – injuries that are a direct result from the initial accident.

Regarding typical brain injuries, people’s minds are often drawn towards NFL players or other impact-sports players who are known to be at a high risk for this type of injury. Motor vehicle accidents are often overlooked as far as brain injuries go, but they can be a leading cause in the brain injury category. Whether it be from a victim’s head being hit against the steering wheel, window, seat, airbag, or maybe even on another victim, the possibility for head and brain injuries from a car accident are very real. The problem is that these types of injuries do not typically show up right when the car accident happens, rather later in the week or month following the accident.
A couple of symptoms of a traumatic brain injury include: anxiety, difficulty thinking, nausea, headaches or migraines, or insomnia. If you or a loved one has experienced any of these symptoms following a car accident, it is extremely important to get these checked out as soon as possible. The quicker they are checked out, the better chances there are to fix the problem.
